Dining at Piste Mountain Bistro in Jackson Hole, Wyoming is far from being ordinary. In order for you to get to the bistro you will need to take a 12 minute ride on the Bridger Gondola from Teton Village. Piste sits directly on the ski slopes and can be enjoyed year round. My friend and I dined here when it was not ski season and enjoyed the fresh mountain air plus the views.
There is a special gondola line for those with Piste Mountain Bistro reservations. Since this is a popular restaurant, it is recommended that you make reservations. The regular line going up can be congested at times, so the restaurant line is a lot quicker. When you arrive, just give the staff member your name and off you go!

Once you arrive to the top, the views are remarkable and the air is crisp. Make sure you time your dinner just right, so you can take advantage of the daylight. There was a large patio outside the bistro and it was an enjoyable spot. There were people mingling with drinks in hand and taking photographs while waiting for their reservations.
—— On the Table ——
I had requested on our reservations, a table with a window view and it was honored. We ordered a couple of their beautifully hand crafted cocktails after we were seated. Both the Sparrow and The Lucky Charm cocktails were delicious and dazzling, we highly recommend them.
Since we over ate (imagine that) during lunch time at Bubba’s BBQ, we decided to keep it light. I ordered the Chef’s Soup which was a tasty take on corn chowder. It was very good considering it was a chilly day. My friend and I both ordered the grilled vegetables with smoked feta hummus which was the perfect size. Personally, I did not want to eat too much meat, not any of possible because I ate so much of it at Bubba’s!
Bread and Butter
Fresh Artisan bread, focaccia and butter. I enjoyed the focaccia so much that I asked for another serving.
A flavorsome and modern take on the classic corn chowder.
Smoked Feta Hummus
A delightful light dish of seasonal grilled vegetables, smoked feta hummus, puffed farrow and capicola
For my friend’s second course she decided on the Pork Belly appetizer which was our server’s recommendation. He said it was his favorite and it soon became my friend’s favorite. She mentioned that the whole dish was excellent and seasoned well.
What a fun and delicious dinner at Piste Mountain Bistro. We found everything to be solid- The food, the cocktails and the views.
Up up and away! Headed up to Piste Mountain Bistro ….
