What To Know
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is 12.5 miles northwest of the town of Jackson

No need to rent a car: Jackson’s bus system is incredibly comprehensive for a small town, with regular stops at both the airport and ski resort
The hotel staff is small; call ahead if you are going to be checking in late
No flat-screens here, just boxy old TV sets

A Euro hideaway with Olympic cred in the heart of downtown Jackson
A cozy European-style inn, this alpine lodge has fir beams, rustic floors and overstuffed sofas and armchairs by a roaring fireplace. The draw isn’t edgy design but an inviting stay with skier cred thanks to owners Hans and Nancy Johnstone, who both competed in the 1988 and 1992 Olympics (souvenirs of the games adorn the walls). Cozy up with a book from the library or, in warmer weather, relax on the deck and walk the perennial gardens.
Bed & Bath
Styled with Scandinavian simplicity, the guestrooms are modest in size and amenities, featuring pine headboards and desks, iPod docking stations, gas fireplaces and down duvets. Bathrooms feature plush bathrobes and all natural handmade products. Note: The stairs can be a little daunting if you’re carrying heavy bags; ask for some help.
During ski season the Johnstones can give you the lowdown on snow conditions and the best runs. During warmer months, take out one of the hotel’s free bikes to explore downtown Jackson. Afterward, unwind at the hotel’s “Little” spa with a massage, Finnish sauna and a signature Bubbling Mud Bath.
In the Area
Jackson balances Wild West fun with a sophisticated restaurant scene. Gavin Fine is the local restaurateur to know. Be sure to swing by his new wine bar, Bin22, or the buzzy Rendezvous Bistro. For something low-key, grab an award-winning locally made beer at Snake River Brewing. If you’re here in the summer, be sure to check out the ropin’ cowboys (and girls!) at the Jackson Hole Rodeo on Wednesday and Saturday nights. In the winter take a day off from the slopes for a wildlife safari to look for elk, moose, bighorn sheep and bison.
