If you are looking for a true taste of historic America right in the centre of Jackson Hole, then look no further.
If you are looking for a true taste of historic America right in the centre of Jackson Hole, then look no further. The Wort Hotel was Jackson’s first luxury hotel and offers old fashioned exceptional Western hospitality. The rooms are decorated in grand artwork, Lodgepole Pine furniture and traditional colourful western fabrics. The hotel is also home to the famous Silver Dollar Bar, one of Jacksons most popular. The ‘Silver Dollar’ bar is the Worts trademark and is decorated with over 2000 original silver dollars. It is a firm favourite with its happy hour, big screen entertainment and live music.
The Wort really is something special. In fact the National Geographic named The Wort among its ‘50 Great Inns of America’. A free shuttle bus takes skiers to the base of the mountain in Teton Village (15-20 minutes journey time approximately)
Guests of the Wort can enjoy the complimentary wine and cheese reception every Thursday evening, and the complimentary après ski every afternoon with hot chocolate and freshly baked cookies. WiFi internet is also complimentary as well as ski storage and self parking.
The hotel has 59 rooms in total and each is uniquely furnished. All have a TV, telephone, bathrobes, hairdryer and a tea and coffee maker. Rooms range from a Deluxe room up to Signature Theme suites.
About Jackson Hole
For experts, this is one resort that really must be visited. It offers great snow, wonderful powder, is remote and scenic, with some of the best advanced skiing on the planet. Rendezvous Mountain has enough to push even the best, with limitless off-piste and steeps. Laramie, Cheyenne and Hensleep bowls are particularly adventurous, as is the backcountry, for which you should definitely be guided. Beginners should head for 'Après-Vous Mountain', while the ski school has tuition for 9 ability levels. Intermediates have some limited cruising, but this is a resort where you can start to explore tougher terrain. The Ski Three package also gives you access to 'Grand Targhee' (90 minutes away) and 'Snow King'. Expert boarders will revel as much as their two-planked cousins. Because the lower and easier runs are at 1900m, there can be poorer snow down the mountain. The lift system is small but efficient and the only queues can be found for the cable car to the top.
The major downside to Jackson Hole is the accommodation offered. There is Teton Village, which is fairly limited. Most have to travel 15 minutes from Jackson town, which is linked by bus (not free). It is, however, a friendly resort, with a 'Wild West' feel and some excellent dining, particularly for breakfast. For non-skiers there are loads of activities and the world-famous Yellowstone National Park is close by. Jackson is actually busier in summer because of the park. There is some fun après-ski, but it doesn't exactly qualify as crazy. European visitors will have a long trip including 2-3 flights. The season is also cut short by elk migration in April elk.
Overall, Jackson Hole is a resort which simply demands a visit from the pro's out there. It's as simple as that…
