Amangani - Luxury Ski Getaway


With summer winding down, you might be getting ready to plan that next ski vacation. A chance to glide down some fresh powder in a magnificent setting and enjoy a little evening apr├Ęs ski.

Jackson Hole, a valley located amid the Teton Range of mountains just north of Jackson, Wyoming, is home to some magnificent skiing. And where there’s skiing, there would be the requisite ski resorts. One such standout resort would happen to be today’s subject…

A member of the luxurious Aman Resorts chain (one of our favorites), the Amangani property was designed to embrace its impressive natural surroundings, yet provide all the amenities you might desire. Architectural beauty, stunning vistas, top-shelf service, and lavish accommodations – Amangani has it all.

The property consists of 29 luxurious suites as well as several larger deluxe suites. A number of separate villas are also available for rent. The Grill restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and a lounge and bar is available for relaxing with lighter fare. Other amenities include a library, gym, heated quartzite-tiled pool and whirlpool, and several gathering rooms.

Access is easy, as Amangani is a quick 20 minute drive from Jackson Hole airport. The city of Jackson is just a few miles to the south and the National Parks of Yellowstone and Grand Teton are short drives to the north. The skiing is based out of Teton Village (what most refer to as Jackson Hole) where you have access to Amangani’s private ski lounge. Even the summer months provide a plethora of activities including fly-fishing, horseback riding, hot-air balloon rides, rafting and kayaking, golf, tennis, mountain biking – the list goes on…

The snow will be falling soon, so wax the skis and make your reservations – Amangani is calling..! Connoisseur recommended!
