The first weekend in March Matt and I road tripped to Jackson, WY to ski with 6 of our Midwest friends that live in Salt Lake. We have visited Jackson a few times during the summer, but this was our first time skiing there. The city and ski resort are so beautiful during the winter! We drove up Friday after work, skied a full day Saturday, half day Sunday, and drove home that night. We stayed right in downtown Jackson about 20 min from the resort, and it was great to be in walking distance to restaurants and bars. We enjoyed dinner at Snake River Brewery and got drinks at the Cowboy Bar Saturday night. We also ate at a few restaurants at the ski resort during the day. The temps were warm and the conditions were slushy and icy in patches, making it the first weekend of spring skiing. The terrain is for intermediate to advanced with mostly double blue and black runs, so we were definitely sore after day 1! Day 2 was a little bit more relaxed, and we had time to explore most of the mountain in one weekend. We took the tram up to the summit to finish out the day Sunday before heading home. It was a great last ski trip with friends and we can’t wait to explore new resorts on the Ikon Pass next season! Writing this blog over a month later, it’s crazy to think that this was our last full weekend skiing for the season before all of the resorts shut down due to Covid. We would normally be spring skiing until this past weekend, but we will just have to wait until November. We are definitely ready for hiking and camping season!

Hello Everyone! I'm a Midwest girl at heart, I grew up and went to college in the small town of La Crosse, WI. After graduating college in 2016, I moved to Minneapolis, MN to start my corporate career in Accounting. In May 2018 I married my college sweetheart Matt in La Crosse, WI. Just 2 days after our wedding, we packed up our U-haul and moved across the country to Salt Lake City, UT. It was the scariest move leaving the comfort of family and friends, but so far we are loving the west coast! We have been on many hiking, camping, and outdoor adventures and we love documenting them. We wanted to keep our friends and family in the loop with our life out west, so I thought there was no better way than to start my own blog! I am so thankful for the adventures we have had since moving and I can't wait to share our favorite spots in Utah and beyond. Thank you for following along! Love, Brooke View all posts by brookekrier
