The summer's winding down, which means it's time to start making plans for a winter getaway. Wyoming's Amangani
is easily one of the most sought-after destinations on the planet, its ski and spa experience unparalleled on the North American continent. Perched atop a butte 7,000 feet above sea level outside Jackson Hole, Amangani is surrounded by a magnificent panorama of the snow-capped peaks of Grand Teton National Park. Amangani's Ski Lounge is conveniently located at the base of the Bridger gondola in Teton Village and some of North America's most acclaimed ski-runs at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. A private meeting and resting place with racks for storing skis and warming boots, Amangani's Ski Lounge also provides complimentary snacks, hot beverages, wash rooms and concierge service
-- all designed to keep Amangani's guests on the slopes longer. After a great day skiing, unwind with a mulled wine or ginger tea before the large wood-burning fireplaces of Amangani's
Lounge, the two-storey window wall offering beautiful views of the Snake River Range. Or hit the open-air heated pool and whirlpool, where you can soak your muscles while contemplating the gorgeous views. The Amangani Ski Experience
includes five nights accommodations, airport transfers, daily continental breakfast, a four-day ski pass and a 60-minute massage. Available December 4, 2007- April 6, 2008, priced from $3,700.
