ski at jackson hole mountain resort
If it’s action-packed days on the slopes and a convivial après-ski atmosphere, Amanresorts provides access to the best of both. At Amangani in Wyoming, USA, you are a complimentary 20-minute shuttle ride away from the Amangani Ski Lounge and some of North America’s most acclaimed ski-runs at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, 1,000 hectares of high-thrill skiing and snowboarding terrain featuring North America’s greatest lift-serviced vertical drop at 1,260m (4,139ft). Conveniently located at the base of the Bridger gondola in Teton Village, Amangani’s Ski Lounge provides a private meeting and resting place with racks for storing skis and warming boots. Ski lessons and equipment can be organised from the lounge. Complimentary snacks, hot beverages, washrooms and concierge service are all designed to keep Amangani’s guests on the slopes longer. After a great day on the slopes, unwind with a mulled wine or ginger tea before the large wood-burning fireplaces of Amangani’s Lounge, the two-storey window wall offering beautiful views of the Snake River Range.
