Pamper Yourself
Wilderness Adventure Spa at Spring Creek Ranch This new spa's name says it all, from its location on a butte overlooking the Tetons to its outdoor activities. A typical winter day can begin with dog-sledding, followed by a soothing warm mud wrap and a quiet hour of sipping ginger tea in the relaxation room. During the warmer seasons, the spa menu includes an array of active treatments, such as reiki on horseback (in which the animal's energy is aligned with yours), yoga in a wildflower field, and meditation sessions around an open fire pit. doubles from $195; treatments from $80; 1800 Spirit Dance Rd., Jackson; 307/733-8833

Body Sage Located on the lower level of the Rusty Parrot Lodge, the spa is open to the public, not just to hotel guests. Indulge in the Sports Recovery package—a two-hour treatment that includes a massage, a hot arnica wrap (a flower oil used to soothe muscles), and an energizing salt scrub that leaves skin baby-soft ($185). one-hour treatments from $85; 175 N. Jackson St., Jackson; 307/733-4455

Hollee Armstrong Spa at the Teton Club You don't have to own a condo in the Teton Club to take advantage of its spa's hot-stone massages, detoxifying wraps, and facials. Before or after your treatment, spend some quiet time in the "Tranquility Suite" relaxing in the overstuffed leather chaise while listening to the steady trickle of the waterfall. 50-minute treatments from $85; 3340 W. Cody Dr., Teton Village; 307/734-9777

Elizabeth Drapela Drapela has been kneading the knots out of local and visiting athletes for the past five years. For an extra $20 she'll set up her table (with heated blankets) at your hotel or condo. one-hour basic massage $60; 307/732-0074

Where to Eat
Snake River Grill It has been open for 10 years, and it's still considered the best place in town. Reserve a table near the double-sided stone fireplace in the timbered dining room and start with a pizza. Then sample tender local game, fresh ahi tuna (flown in daily from Florida and Hawaii) over wasabi mashed potatoes, or bacon-wrapped salmon. Leave room for the warm molten chocolate cake. 84 E. Broadway, Jackson; 307/733-0557; dinner for two $90.

Old Yellowstone Garage Despite its name, this is a sophisticated Italian restaurant specializing in the owners' native cucina piemontese. That translates to flavorful dishes such as halibut in an olive, caper, and roasted garlic sauce; grilled quails in a honey-balsamic glaze; and house-made black linguine with scallops and pesto. Sunday is pizza night—just $15 for salad and all-you-can-eat slices from the wood-burning oven. 175 Center St., Jackson; 307/734-6161; dinner for two $50.

Rendezvous Bistro People keep returning for the Bistro's raw bar and mussels simmered in spicy red curry-coconut broth. Find a seat at the always-busy bar, or book a more private leather banquette in the back. 380 S. Broadway, Jackson; 307/739-1100; dinner for two $65.

Sweetwater Restaurant Housed in a renovated 1915 log cabin, this is where midday shoppers stop for simple sandwiches, soups, and salads. In the evening, the atmosphere is less frenetic and the food more complex—risotto with artichoke hearts, roasted peppers, and shrimp; rack of lamb in port-wine sauce; Idaho rainbow trout in toasted-almond butter. 80 S. King St., Jackson; 307/733-3553; lunch for two $20, dinner for two $70.
