Luxury skiing in Wyoming

Mike & Donna's verdict:

Like an American version of the Alps, the Grand Tetons rise to 4,200m and provide some of the most breathtaking mountain scenery in the USA - and some of its most thrilling skiing, especially in Jackson Hole. Wyoming is another world, like the Wild West but with spectacular snowfalls in winter.

If you like to ski – or should we say, ski in style – head to Jackson Hole (aka The Hole) in Wyoming. This stellar ski resort is not only home to the Pacific redwood, the rugged Teton mountains and world-class backcountry skiing – it’s also the home of Amangani, perhaps the ultimate ski retreat.

This oak-pannelled ski-in-ski-out gem is perched on the crest of East Gros Ventre Butte, close to the slopes, and it’s just a ten-minute drive from Jackson – a quaint village packed with an authentic feel of the wild west.

Amangani is all about 21st century comforts set in raw nature. The views from each of the 30 or so suites are spell-binding, especially from the corner suites. Chill out in the well-warmed outdoor pool with a view, indulge in post-ski pre-dinner cocktails by the toasty fires and head to the Spa and steam room for rejuvenating those aching limbs.

The food in the restaurant – which, with floor-to-ceiling glass is truly a room with a view – is rated as the best in the region and the Zinc Bar serves wicked cocktails as well as chilled beers, naturally.

Grown-up skiers especially won’t want to miss the chance to go cat-skiing – head out to the Rockies on board a snow cat for a powder day.

We can tailor-make your stay at Amangani, combined with other special places in the Wild West – or take the plunge (The Hole’s vertical drop plunges more than 4,000 feet) on our Wild Wild Snowy West retreat. Costing from £2,259 per person including transatlantic flights, you’ll enjoy three nights at Amangani, a three-day ski pass and a lunch on us in Amangani’s private ski lounge in the heart of Teton Village.
