Sustainable Stay Program
At Grand Teton Lodge Company we do all we can to make sustainable choices. We love the natural setting that we are lucky enough to work in, and want to preserve it for the future. Because we are so invested in sustainable efforts, we work to find ways we can help our guests be more sustainable as they are visiting the park. Thus, we have put together the Sustainable Stay program.
Sustainable Stay is comprised primarily of three parts: Lodging, Dining and Personal Wellness.
Guests are encouraged to take the Sustainable Stay Pledge to do their part in promoting sustainable living in the park. In return for taking this pledge, we reward our guests with a gift of a reusable bag, water bottle, Sustainable Stay sticker, and $5 per night off your room rate with a 2 night minimum length of stay.
Take the Sustainable Stay Pledge
In 2015, Jackson Lake Lodge underwent a major room remodel. In accordance with our strong commitment to sustainability, we upgraded to new eco-rooms. Sustainable features of our Guest Rooms include:
Appetite for Life
We encourage our guests to make food choices that are both healthy and sustainable. GTLC’s restaurants established a sustainable cuisine program in 2003 with criteria that integrates sustainably sourced, organic, natural, seasonal, local and regional food and beverage components that incorporate the opportunities and challenges of the remote Jackson Hole. Our menus provide a variety of choices of both healthy and sustainable options allowing guests to choose meals based on what matters to them. We operate on the belief that good food is fuel for a life well lived. Guests that wish to help us promote sustainable food choices in the Jackson Hole area are encouraged to make donations to Vertical Harvest, a local non-profit that provides fresh local produce for the community.

Grand Teton National Parks “Hiking to be Healthy”
Due to the expansive trail system, everyone can find a suitable trail in Grand Teton National Park. While some trails are considered easy, others are strenuous and only for the experienced. The trails provide the best views of the park from beautiful vista overlooks to wild flowers of every color. Hiking is an excellent exercise for all, and its positive impacts are numerous. This low impact exercise improves cardiorespiratory and muscular fitness, lowers the risk of high blood pressure, reduces depression, helps with weight control and can improve your night’s sleep. Personalize your hiking experience to the best exertion level and interests for you. The hiking descriptions below will allow you to better determine the hike that is appropriate for you, as well as show you some of the personal benefits for your fitness goals. Grand Teton Hikes
