Deep in western Wyoming, the Teton Range is known for its epic powder skiing – choose one of these top hotels in Jackson Hole for your next vacation.
Jackson Hole boasts legendary powder and the longest continuous vertical rise of any ski run in the US, with 4,139ft (1,262m) from the top to the valley floor. This season, the mountain added two new chairlifts, Sublette and Thunder, which allow for lapping the chutes along the aerial tramway and a ridge of expert terrain, just below the legendary Corbet’s Couloir. These are the hotels you should book for your next stay.
Bronze cowboy statues and boldly colored photographs from famed wildlife photographer Thomas Mangelsen fill this Wyoming Inn amid overstuffed leather chairs and other classic Western touches. Power up for the day with a hearty breakfast from the Whistling Grizzly dining room. Ski butlers will deliver ski and boot rentals, while you grab a ticket for free bus access to town or the ski village 20 minutes away. The azure hot tub alongside a flickering gas fire feature can be privately booked for a personal oasis.
Just steps from the ski lifts, Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa draws both diehard skiers eager to tackle Jackson’s steeps, and those invested in the buzzy après-ski scene, for which the hotel’s bar is a hot spot. The Spur Restaurant will prioritize guests, but requires online reservations for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Pick up meals to enjoy in-room, seated at massive picture windows or in front of the fireplace. Meanwhile, your ski boots will warm on the in-room dryers, and skis get an overnight tune downstairs. Alternatively, take a drink to-go for a stroll through Teton Village.
This family-owned hotel’s roots run back half a century, but perpetual renovation efforts have kept its face fresh and its list of luxuries growing – from heated bathroom floors to in-room ski racks. Owners Diana Kudar and Tim Waycott have added solar panels to renewably power water heaters and cut plastic consumption to win sustainability points. Browse the history hanging on in old-school wood skis and trappers’ skins while sipping a hot cocoa.
Hipster minimalism finds its mountain stride in the Anvil Hotel, a 1950s ski motel renovated by a design firm based in Brooklyn. Style is in the details, from the iron frame beds and custom Woolrich blankets to the leather-wrapped pegs for skis. Glorietta Trattoria, the hotel’s laid-back Italian restaurant, serves handmade pasta and ribeye steaks cut by the slab, and pours hand-crafted cocktails. Don’t miss the Greybull, with white rum, ginger and lime softened with honey and rosewater. A warm welcome awaits, as their motto is, “You’re a stranger here but once.”
