At the junction of secluded wilderness, epic mountain views, and epicurean luxury lies one of Wyoming’s top attractions.
Is that the altitude making your head swim? Or simply the gourmet sake you’ve been sipping while tasting the fresh sushi—flown in this morning, of course—in the valley of Jackson Hole? Or perhaps it’s all that fresh mountain air and the knowledge that no matter what season it is when your boots hit the ground, natural beauty lies just beyond the comforts of this posh Western town.
What to do in Jackson Hole depends largely on what season it is. In winter, the resort town is bustling with snow bunnies and snow moose floating up the mountain on lifts and flying back down on skis, boards, and snowmobiles. Summer is the time of hikers and mountain bikers looking to catch a glimpse of impressive antlers in the National Elk Refuge—or at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. In between seasons? Quiet seclusion and relaxation.
Speaking of getting away from it all, Jackson Hole has served as adventure playground to celebrities for years. That may be Harrison Ford, Sandra Bullock, or Matthew McConaughey speeding down the slope beside you, hidden behind a pair of goggles and retaining that sweet anonymity a vacation way out here grants. A couple of selfies in nearby Grand Teton National Park or a guide for things to do in Jackson Hole, and you could inspire just as much envy-laced admiration with your following.
When you’re all topped off on adventure, let your inner bear kick in: pack on the pounds with everything from gourmet bagels and coffee to micro brews, to Western fare like beef stew, cornbread, and ribs at places to eat in Jackson Hole. Or, you know, just hibernate while a professional masseuse works out those mountain-high knots.
Mountain resort getaways don’t get much better than this. That is, unless you book one of our Jackson Hole vacation packages. They’re both easy and cheap—a match nearly as heavenly as a hot toddy and a warm fire after a day on the slopes, wouldn’t you say?
