America's Best Ski Towns
Courtesy of the Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole
The Jackson Hole Valley’s namesake ski resort in Teton Village features the largest vertical rise served by one lift system in the U.S., plus convenient, upscale digs like Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole. But Jackson, a half hour from the village and Jackson Hole Airport, is marvelous in its own right—and still the kind of western town where dressed-up generally means jeans. Those in-the-know gather for après-ski drinks at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar and the historic Wort Hotel’s Silver Dollar Bar, then spill over to The Kitchen for grilled calamari steak or pan-seared red deer. Find your way back to the 31-room Rusty Parrot, near Jackson’s town square, where returning skiers are treated to house-made cookies.
