Tucked into a corner of northwestern Wyoming ringed by national parks, Jackson Hole is the American Wild West meets winter wonderland. Move over, Aspen and Vail. Remote, yet truly upscale, celebrities come to Jackson Hole to escape rather than be seen, whether they want to hit the slopes or cuddle up by the fire in one of the luxury hotels. At Amangani, the outdoor heated infinity pool hangs off the East Gros Ventre Butte’s western side, with seemingly little but air between it and Teton Range in the distance and the valley floor 1,000 feet below. LEED-certified Hotel Terra is home to the restaurant Il Villaggio Osteria, where you can sip the most decadent hot chocolate infused with Indonesian vanilla, star anise, orange zest, brown sugar and a chocolate rustic truffle. At the Wort Hotel, guests can enjoy a good old-fashioned hoe-down with live music and dancing at the inhouse Silver Dollar Bar. The Four Seasons Resort Teton Village has a 2,000-piece art collection consisting of 18th century surrealists and 19th century European masters. But no matter where you stay in Jackson Hole, you’re just a snowball’s throw from Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, downhill skiing at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, wildlife watching, dog sledding, the National Elk Refuge, and America’s prettiest powder.
