A private getaway in a winter wonderland is the perfect way to get in the holiday spirit, and the recently renovated and ultra-chic Caldera House in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, is the place to do it.
The $100 million property, dreamed up by Wesley Edens (co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks), takes a luxury ski stay to the next level: It has only four 2-bedroom suites and four 4-bedrooms, each fitted with a chef’s kitchen, wood-burning fireplace, and elegant leather and wood interiors that evoke a modern take on the Wild West.
The resort and members-only Alpine Club is at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, which officially opens for the season on November 28. Caldera House’s prime location in Teton Village lets you ski right out and back in, and is just a few minutes away from Grand Teton National Park, where the hotel staff can arrange everything from a wildlife excursion with a professional photographer to gourmet picnics. Serious ski addicts can even make a date to hit the slopes with Bode Miller—an Olympic gold medalist and one of the top alpine ski racers of all time—and test out custom Bomber skis and poles, or book a backcountry heli-skiing tour.
After a day of adventuring in the mountains, tuck in for an après cocktail at the on-site Old Yellowstone Garage restaurant or on your private patio, where you can watch the aerial tram zip skiers up and over the treetops. You may never want to leave, and we don’t blame you.
