Jackson Hole: The Best Ski Resort in the US
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming has been rated the
top US Ski Resort for 2014 by Forbes magazine.
The award was based on its $30 million tram, "the greatest ski lift
in North America," its mountain, its gorgeous new airport, its copious
snowfall and even for having the best bagels outside of New York.
Fours Seasons at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
The ski village has a nice variety of slopeside accommodations at different price points. The FourSeasons Jackson Hole offers a beautiful guest rooms and suites as well as
luxury residences. All are warmly
detailed with natural wood and stone and a gas-burning fireplace, and most open
to a private balcony or terrace. Two- to
five-bedroom private residences each include a completely equipped kitchen and
dining area, as well as laundry facilities.
One Bedroom Suite
Four Seasons Preferred Partner amenities for my clients
include daily breakfast for two people
per bedroom, $100 food and beverage credit, upgrade based on availability, and
complimentary high speed internet in suites.
Jackson Hole also offers smaller boutique hotels and
spacious condos, all within Teton Village offering convenient ski –in/ski-out
access. You can also head over to
picturesque Jackson for more shopping and dining. No car is needed, shuttles run the
approximately 12 mile trip regularly between the ski resort and downtown.
If stunning scenery, exceptional skiing, and a
family-friendly self-contained village is not enough to convince you to visit
Jackson Hole, how about this: You can
take a sleigh ride on the wildlife refuge to see herds of elk!
