Why we love it: An upscale stay in Victor with special fun for families
- Proximity to Headwaters Club and its golf course
- Spacious log cabins that can accommodate large groups
- Tons of activities in every season
Jackson Hole, on the Teton Range’s east side, hogs most of the high-end traffic, but this westside resort offers an appealing alternative, with big, open skies and out-the-door golf on a Byron Nelson–designed course at Headwaters Club. Guests here can also look forward to a 5,000-square-foot spa with a fireplace-equipped relaxation room, an on-site restaurant serving grill fare, and an outdoor heated pool with two hot tubs and a geyser play area for children.
Accommodations are spacious and appealing to families. Luxury suites feature fully equipped kitchens, dining areas, and living rooms with gas fireplaces, while freestanding log cabins—available in three-, four-, and five-bedroom configurations—afford groups some extra privacy. When not relaxing in your room, take advantage of the resort’s extensive activities, including hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, and hot-air ballooning in summer and heli-skiing and snowmobiling in winter.
Off Your Bucket List: Heli-Ski From Your Door
Zero lift lines, bottomless powder, and wide open mountain terrain—Heli-skiing is the ultimate ski and snowboard experience. Every powder hound’s dream is Heli-skiing in/out to ride to a remote mountain top to carve up virgin snow. And this season, Natural Retreats Teton Springs Lodge & Spa is bringing heli-skiing to another level. At Teton Springs there’s no car involved. Partnering with High Mountain Heli-skiing, they are one of only two hotels in the lower 48 states to offer on site “heli-in/heli-out” ski experiences, where your front door is the helicopter pad. Roll out of your chalet onto the bird where you will be flown to 305,000 acres of open bowls and deep chutes for an adrenaline-filled 6 runs in some of the freshest powder you’ll ever experience. This winter adventure is one you’ll never forget. If you want to come post season, TSLS (named the #1 Hotel & Spa for the fourth consecutive year by U.S. News & Report) is minutes from hiking and biking trails; world class fishing and it sits on an 18-hole golf course. The lodge also has a swimming pool, a restaurant, and offers spa services.
