Given its location at the foot of one of the most picturesque mountains in the country, the attractions nearby Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole center around the great outdoors — no matter what time of year it is.
Literally in the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s backyard, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is known around the country for its challenging skiing and snowboarding terrain, top-notch ski school, beautiful vistas, vertical relief and its big, red 100-passenger tram. The ski and snowboard season runs from late November through the first weekend of April every year. In the summer, the posh mountain resort offers just as much to do, with hiking trails, mountain biking, outdoor concerts, a downhill bike park and a bungee trampoline.
Of course Grand Teton National Park, one mile from Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole, is a draw as well. In the winter, you can snowshoe in the park — there are daily ranger-led snowshoe hikes that depart from the visitor center — and go on wildlife expeditions. In the summer, there are hundreds of miles of hiking trails, lakes for swimming, creeks for fishing, rivers for rafting and wildlife galore. You will likely see moose, bison, eagles and even elk.
Twelve miles from Teton Village, the town of Jackson has a historic downtown and an Old West feel. Its town square flaunts arches made from elk antlers at each of its corners and all the downtown sidewalks are made of wood planks. The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, right on the town square, is a must-visit with its saddle-topped bar stools.
