Before the hustle and bustle of the holidays, Washington residents can escape to a luxurious vacation at Jackson Hole’s Amangani, which is a two-hour flight from Seattle. The resort is offering a new winter hot springs experience, thrilling ski trips and some snow fun for the little ones, too.
With only 40 suites available, Amangani offers a more intimate and secluded stay in the mountains of Jackson Hole. Each room has a private balcony with a cozy fireplace overlooking the blanket of snow that has frosted the mountains and plains of Snake River Valley. The suite’s design is contemporary, with a calming, wood-toned color palette and wild elements inspired by its surrounding nature like the faux wolf fur throw pillows and cowhide chairs.
Amangani is centrally located, near hot spot destinations like Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. The town of Jackson, a short 10-minute drive from the resort, offers indoor activities for those looking to stay warm with restaurants, shopping destinations, museums, art galleries and more.
Though the resort is known for it scenic views and luxe amenities, its biggest attraction is its winter-focused adventures. For those seeking a thrill, Amangani offers heli-skiing, which is sport for a more seasoned skier, as a helicopter drops you off on a long, rugged and unpaved trail to ski down. If skiing isn’t your style, enjoy fast-paced dog sledding, snowboarding from a private ski lounge and so much more for those looking for some outdoor fun.
If outdoor sports aren’t your preferred recreational activity, maybe a day spent at the Granite Hot Springs might be for you. This experience is a full-day adventure, where guests are whisked away by snowmobile across the snowy grounds and into Gros Ventre Mountain Range, where a healing, natural hot spring awaits. Soak in all of its healing waters and enjoy an afternoon picnic before heading back to the resort.
If little ones are accompanying you, a scenic horse-drawn carriage is available and comes stocked with cozy blankets, hot chocolate and sweet treats. There is also a sleigh ride experience, and kid-friendly snowmobiles for guests to rent. An infinity-style heated pool with an oversized jacuzzi is also open to warm up in while overlooking the stunning mountainscape.
