Just getting started planning our Feb 1-8, 2014 trip. I have very small window to take vaca during that time so I need to start planning early. I was tentatively planning on the following: 2 days YNP guided tour, 2 days renting machines on our own, 2 days skiing (Jackson Hole?). Yes, we work hard, play harder and are not ones to rest on our laurels. A few questions: Is Jackson a good base camp (on a side note - we like good pubs/bars)? Best vendor to choose from for YNP guided tour? Best rental company out of the Jackson area? I am seeing that it looks like the trails start pretty far outside of town? Should we rent somewhere else? The Rustic Inn looks darling. I am looking for a "neat" place to stay with a western feel. Is this a good option? Lots of questions! Thank you in advance for your assistance!
