What: A high altitude luxury hotel resort that many consider to be the best place to lay one's head after an afternoon of skiing.

Where: Surrounded by the jagged peaks of the Teton Mountain range in the Jackson Hole Valley, Wyoming.

Why: Conveniently situated at the base of a piste, the Four Seasons have cleverly added the luxury of a ski-in ski-out facility to their doorstep. From drying boots and fetching skis to recommending ski runs, no task is too tedious or request too challenging for the ski concierges on hand. And if a day off the skis or board is what you're looking for, a multitude of treatments await in the 16-room spa that includes a large heated swimming pool that looks out onto the slopes and breathtaking mountain vistas of the mountains. The deluxe accommodations are typical for a Four Seasons Resort; comfortable, spacious they contain everything from Occitane products in the bathrooms to fireplaces in every room. Dining facilities include a prompt room service and Westbank Grill, fine-dining restaurant. And for those interested in a bit of après ski action, the Lobby Lounge and Peak Bar offer nightly entertainment.
