Located on a butte just outside the Western town of Jackson and overlooking beautiful Jackson Hole Valley, the 1,000-acre Spring Creek Ranch is a secluded mountain retreat with spectacular views of the Teton Mountains.
The resort’s ruggedly elegant accommodations feature stone fireplaces and hand-made lodgepole pine furniture. Guests may choose from suites, family-welcoming studios with full kitchens, 2BR and 3BR luxury condos, or even executive homes.
Spring Creek’s big season is summer, when families on national parks road trips love to settle in for a few nights and enjoy nature at its finest.
But even if you just want to ski, ski, ski, you should consider this non-slopeside retreat.
Spring Creek is the place for families who have come to Jackson Hole for its unique environment, and don’t really want to spend their dawns and dusks looking at purpose-built ski chalets and chairlifts marring the horizon. Sound like your kind of vacation? Good, because Spring Creek is offering some good winter deals this year.
The hot dates for Spring Creek Ranch are November 29, 2010 – April 5, 2011, a very long stretch in which you can find basic Ski & Stay rates from $87.50/N per person. A 4N minimum is required, but you wouldn’t fly all the way out here unless you were planning to stay awhile. Note that prices are based on double occupancy and those noodgey resort fees, taxes and gratuities are not included.
But it’s a good offer for this popular getaway, so don’t miss out on a package that includes:
* a deluxe room with wood burning fireplace
* breakfast daily
* lift tickets to Grand Targhee or Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
* Complimentary ski shuttle to JHMR
* Complimentary scheduled shuttles to town for apres ski or non-slopeside fun.
If the fully organized 4N/5D Winter Wildlife Exploration offer sounds like a good fit for your family, it’s priced at $1,478 per person for any stay during the period December 15, to March 31, 2011. In addition to a room, this custom package gives your family the services of a naturalist on a full-day Winter Wildlife Safari, a half day snowshoe hike, an astronomy night (weather permitting), a Snow coach tour in Yellowstone National Park (our family has done this; great fun!) or the Continental Divide and one dinner at the Granary Restaurant.
Spring Creek is also doing some Custom Ski Vacations during most of this period, so you can ski where you want, eat where you want, whenever you want. The resort’s reservation specialists will add massages at the Wilderness Adventure Spa, snowmobiling, dog sledding or other sports at your convenience. To learn more, contact your travel agent or check on the Spring Creek website for details.
