Winter is upon us and there is no better way to embrace the dropping temperatures than to head out west for an epic ski weekend! Jackson Hole, Wyoming has long been a destination for outdoor enthusiasts seeking roaming and soaring wildlife, world-class fly-fishing and ethereal adventures in the jagged peaks of the Teton Mountain Range.

Recently voted #1 Ski Resort for 2015 by Forbes, and long loved by ski bums everywhere, Jackson Hole boasts three resorts famous for their consistently powdery conditions, charming villages and luxury accommodations. With slopes for every level, top-notch instructors and a wide array of side and backcountry offerings, this is the perfect destination to rediscover your inner adrenaline junkie.

The Amangani offers unparalleled views of Grand Teton National Park from the comfort of your cozy and well-appointed room. Their world-class service extends beyond the resort to a private Ski Lounge, located at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort where your warm boots and ski technicians will get you on the hill in no time – and hot chocolate and snacks will be awaiting your return.

If you prefer to stay slope side, the Four Seasons Jackson Hole provides a luxurious experience with spacious rooms and residences, each with their own fireplace to cap off a long but rewarding day on the mountain. Take flight with their Extraordinary Experience: a helicopter ride from Jackson Hole over the greater Yellowstone ecosystem with a local biologist as your guide!

Off piste, take the family out dogsledding, ice-skating or on a sleigh-ride to a riverside tipi camp for a private lunch. There are plenty of activities to inspire awe in this wide-open wonderland.

Air service into Jackson Hole has expanded for the 2014/2015 seasons and offers direct flights from 15 US cities including Washington DC, Chicago, Dallas and San Francisco. So pack your bags, hop a quick flight and embrace the fresh mountain air. If it is going to be cold, you might as well be enjoying the snow!
