If I could be snowed in anywhere in the world, it would have to be at the amazing Amangani in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
This recent addition to this popular ski destination stands out for a sensitivity to nature in its design and the world class amenities and services offered to fortunate guests.
Here, you’re not only surrounded by nature, you fully embrace it. Native textures and materials are found at every corner, and the sweet smell of Pacific Redwood walls bring the sensations of the outdoors in.
And when you do get the itch to take on Mother Nature, you’re on the doorstep to some of the best skiing, fly-fishing and grand adventures this side of the Mississippi.
Recommended Resort: Amangani, Jackson Hole. Part of the Aman Resort collection that included properties like the stunning desert escape Amangiri in Utah, Amangani takes a similar approach to its location, fully integrating the design and flow to best capture the beauty and grace of the natural landscape it shares.
Thus you will find plenty of “windows” to all the wonder, like floor to ceiling glass, infinity pools, natural materials and open terraces.
For accommodations you not only find gorgeous, well-appointed suites available, but homes for rent as well. Nearly all rooms or homes offer breathtaking views of the Grand Tenton mountain range and some of the Snake River Valley and glistening Jackson Hole below.
Check In: 1535 North East Butte Road in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. 877-734-7333, amanresorts.com/amangani.
Check Out: The skiing. Voted the number one ski resort in North America by Condé Nast Traveler, Amangani offers panoramic views of the snow-capped peaks around Grand Tenton National Park.
With ski season lasting from late-November to early April, Jackson Hole receives more than 400 inches of snow yearly and has miles of ski terrain. A complimentary 20-minute transfer from the resort to Amangani’s private ski lounge puts you right in the middle of the action.
Don’t Miss: Après Ski. There’s nothing cozier and more romantic that hours spent nestled in resort. Cuisine is served up at The Grill, a 65-seat dining room with a wood-burning fireplace and wintery views. Private dining can be arranged in the Takoda Room for something a little more intimate.
The library celebrates local and Native American arts and features a broad selection of books, music, games and more. There’s also a heath center and gym, and if you can brave the winter chill for a moment, check out the heated outdoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi for a breath of fresh air.
