Jackson Hole aficionados Kudos on Chris Reynolds' wonderful article on family-friendly Jackson Hole ["All This Can Be Yours," Aug. 5]. My family and I have been traveling there off and on for 30 years, and the beauty of this area never fails to amaze. We have found so many free or moderately priced things to do that we return often. Add to his list the Elk Country Inn, a sister property to Cowboy Village. Really nice people, locally owned and convenient to all activities.

Three California locales made the short list of best U.S. ski towns for residential real estate investors,  reports online housing marketplace RealtyTrac . Whitefish, Mont., ranked first nationwide, followed by Truckee, Calif., near Squaw Valley; Vail, Colo.; Avon, Colo., near the Beaver Creek Resort, and Jackson, Wyo., with its Jackson Hole ski resort. Other Golden State locations making the 19-area list were Mammoth Lakes in eighth place and South Lake Tahoe at 13th. Rather than send their staffers out to measure slope grooming and days of fresh powder, RealtyTrac made their selections from communities of 2,500 residents or more with at least one ski mountain in the top 50 list compiled by Zrankings.

WASHINGTON - Late summer is a beautiful time to be in scenic Jackson Hole, Wyo., particularly if you're an economic bigwig, but European Central Bank President Mario Draghi is canceling his reservations. He's got a more pressing matter at home: trying to solve the European debt crisis. The ECB said Tuesday that Draghi would not participate in the eagerly anticipated Jackson Hole Economic Policy Symposium later this week, the annual gathering of central bankers and economists hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, according to media reports.

WASHINGTON -- A top Federal Reserve official said Friday that he would support a reduction in the central bank's stimulus efforts in September if economic data continue to show the recovery proceeding at a moderate pace. Dennis Lockhart, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, noted that there will not be a lot of new data between now and the Federal Open Market Committee's Sept. 17-18 meeting. But Lockhart, viewed as a centrist, said he was confident the economy would continue to grow at a moderate pace the second half of the year.

Huddled on the snowy bank of the Snake River at Moose, Dornan's may be the world's most scenic bar. Before its picture window, skiers gather to sip Irish coffee at sunset and pay homage to the stunning mountain panorama. Peaks and jagged pinnacles tower over this valley like a Gothic cathedral. The Grand Tetons, a choir of majestic granite spires, trumpet their beauty through the high country basin called Jackson Hole.

The ground was alive with crackles and snaps on the last day of the short, sweet season at Jenny Lake Lodge in Wyoming. "It's the grasshoppers," a waiter explained, staring out toward the grand Teton wall. "This is their noisiest month." In the hushed mountain world of Jackson Hole, the grasshoppers' crackle seemed raucous. But it would not last long. Nights were already growing cold by mid-September. Soon the lodge would be shuttered. The land would be girding for snow.

The 34th World Championship Snowmobile Hill Climb up Jackson Hole's Snow King Mountain is wrapping up -- and so is the ski season. But the real buzz at this popular Wyoming destination has been this season's debut of the Big Red aerial tram. "It was amazing, there were so many people out there that night," recalls local resident Brian May of Dec. 20, where amid spotlights, the new $32-million tram made its maiden voyage. "I couldn't get on the first one, but I made it on the second trip up."

What a difference a decade makes. More than 10 years ago, I skied Jackson Hole ("skied" is probably too strong a word; "survived" is more like it), which had a reputation as one of the toughest ski areas in the country. The tram to the top of the mountain had all the ambience of a New York subway car, the windchill made the temperature feel like zero, the overcast skies prevented me from seeing much beyond my own breath, and the fear factor ranked right up there with skydiving.

WEARING four layers of clothing, you shoulder your skis and head to the first of four lifts that will carry you to the top of the newly tramless mountain. That's what it will take this year -- and next -- to access Rendezvous Mountain's 10,924-foot summit in Jackson Hole, one of the nation's premier ski destinations. Until this season, 55 skiers at a time could huddle inside the aerial tram for a 12-minute ride up the mountain.

As the Bush Administration fine-tunes its health care reform proposals, a small publicity-shy coterie of doctors, academics and senior health care executives--known as "the Jackson Hole Group"--has been exerting a strong influence on White House thinking. They are one of several free market-oriented groups that are trying to influence the health care proposals that President Bush is expected to unveil in his State of the Union address Jan. 28.

Hotel Terra Jackson Hole in Teton Village, Wyo., sits at the base of the area's famous ski resort and about a mile from the entrance to Grand Teton National Park . As the season shifts from winter to summer, the hotel offers visitors a midweek break on rooms during a 72-hour sale starting at $199 a night. The deal: The sale rate is good for stays Mondays through Thursdays in a guest room or an urban studio. You may cancel the reservation but you must do so at least 14 days in advance to avoid penalty fees.

CODY, Wyo. - For many, the federal budget ax that fell last month has meant a few nicks here and there. For Joe Kondelis, it's sliced a lot deeper. After stewing for days, the 53-year-old opened his wallet and delivered a $2,000 check to the Cody Chamber of Commerce to help pay for snowplowing at Yellowstone National Park. It wasn't easy. Cash is scarce once Yellowstone shuts down for the winter. But after automatic spending cuts idled the National Park Service plows and threatened to delay opening day for two weeks - two weeks that could cost his beer distributorship $100,000 in sales - Kondelis felt he had no choice.

SAN FRANCISCO - Tiger Woods birdied the eighth hole Sunday but motioned dismissively with his right hand, as if to say: You can keep it. Woods already had given up six shots to par in his final round. It marked an incredible tumble for Woods, considering he was tied for the U.S. Open lead Saturday morning. His 75-73 finish extended his majors drought to four years. "The first six [holes, which he played in six over], I just didn't play well at all," Woods said. "I just could never get anything going positively and I missed the ball on the wrong side a couple times.

Dear SOS: My family recently vacationed in Jackson Hole, Wyo., and our favorite meal by far was at Nani's Cucina Italiana . The surprise star of the evening was the tortino di fagiolin i, a delicious green bean tart that reminded us of a refined Italian version of green bean casserole. Maybe you can convince them to share the recipe? Jonathan Alexander Los Angeles Dear Jonathan: A great make-ahead recipe when you're expecting company, this tortino from Nani's combines fresh green beans, grated Parmigiano and a touch of garlic in a baked egg tart similar to a frittata.

The towns of Jackson and San Simeon appear to have little in common: One is a ski town where the average home is $1.25 million; the other is a village in central Mexico where indoor plumbing is a luxury. But their economies have been linked, some say inextricably, since residents of San Simeon and neighboring Hueyotlipan began coming to Jackson about 10 years ago to fill the surfeit of hotel and restaurant jobs.

Rolling through Jackson Hole on the way into Grand Teton National Park for the first time, I spotted a boy on the cycle path alongside the road. His family was a few yards behind him, and the Tetons were off to his left, their ragged, snowy peaks jutting above the Snake River and miles of meadow. The boy was taking it all in, his helmeted head tilted back. His legs were pumping. And his arms were off the handlebars, thrown out in scarecrow fashion. He was the King of the World, astride a shiny bike instead of a doomed ocean liner.
