Find Amangani (meaning ‘peaceful home’) in an unbeatable spot on the crest of East Gros Ventre Butte, adjacent to an outstanding ski spot and with Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park as its neighbors. The intimate resort has just 40 suites and overlooks Jackson Hole and the Teton mountain range. Of course, many come here to ski, and the hotel certainly caters to them — you can heli-ski or snowcat powder ski on untouched slopes, go cross-country skiing with a guide, or go snowshoeing through the backcountry and learn about the wildlife in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem; your guide will interpret animal tracks and explain animal behavior too. For a change of pace, embark on the Granite Hot Springs Adventure. You’ll be whisked through a winter wonderland on a dogsled to the Gros Ventre Mountain Range, where you’ll soak in the natural healing waters and take in the awe-inspiring surroundings, followed by an intimate picnic.
