Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

The name may contain the word 'hole', but Jackson Hole is a decidedly posh hole. The cowboy hats are a little taller, the boots a little shinier. Not everyone is 'all hat, no cattle', as locals like to say: this is still ranching country, not just a retreat for the wealthy.

The crowds around Jackson and Teton Village are drawn to the winter snow for skiing, or the summer sun for exploring Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Budget seekers, and crowd avoiders, should target the spring and autumn. Spring wildflowers or fall aspens turning gold? You can’t lose.

Jackson Hole may have a luxe reputation, but there’s still a hostel: The Hostel in Jackson Hole is often the cheapest accommodation option around. Vacation rentals or private rooms in local homes can be a great deal, particularly in low season — getting a big house with a large group is a great way to cut down on both lodging and food costs.

Nora’s Fish Creek Inn serves up a great country breakfast with portions big enough to share (skip the line to sit right at the counter if you’re a small group). Load up for a day of hiking with a sandwich and healthy snacks from Jackson Whole Grocer — you may get finer lunch fare in town, but you won’t have the view.
