Luxury holidays in Jackson Hole
Actually, the clues were always there in the landscape: snow-topped slopes, rugged mountains and two national parks, Grand Teton and Yellowstones, populated by hulking bison and shaggy buffalo. If this were a Western, the main action would be split between two places: the small town of Jackson, encircled by craggy peaks, and Teton Village, in Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Jackson has all the swagger of the Wild West: saloon-fronted stores and restaurants with cowboy-cool; the Swiss-style Teton Village is fit for ski-bunnies.
