Concierge.com's insider take:
As Jackson gets hipper and more expensive, it's easy to overlook the fact that the great outdoors is what initially brought people here. Of all the hotels in Teton Village, the Teton Mountain Lodge seems the most devoted to getting people off the property. Credit owners Rob and Kit DesLauriers, a pair of local ski stars turned developers. They've schussed down slopes around the globe and know what outdoor enthusiasts want—things like in-room boot dryers, dual-head showers, and a closetful of loaner gear, from parkas to binoculars. The four-room spa is "green"—sporting natural-fiber carpets, recycled paper products, and organic cotton towels. To round out the sporting cred, the Cascade Grill House & Spirits is peopled with nonguests, including the folks from local extreme filmmakers Teton Gravity Research. In 2007, the lodge underwent a 16,000-square-foot expansion and unveiled a renovated spa.
