There are definitely some impressive Idaho resorts, and a few specifically like Sun Valley and Coeur d’ Alene that are well known to travelers and draw international guests. However, most folks probably don’t realize that the state of Idaho could legitimately lay claim to being called the “silver state,” being the top state in the nation in the production of silver. However, Nevada grabbed that moniker years ago and that’s ok; this potato state can proudly boast about their world class community. One of Idaho’s resorts that perhaps isn’t quite as famous as the two previously mentioned areas, but undoubtedly will be, sits nestled in the eastern corner, smack in the heart of spectacular Teton Valley. This Idaho resort community hugs the Wyoming border and is located a mere 25 miles from down town Jackson Hole.
There’s a hand full of luxury hotels in Idaho that come fully equipped with year round recreation and the promise of adventure for all ages. Teton Springs Resort, Idaho’s only all season resort community in this part of the state, is equipped with an award-winning golf course, and that’s just the beginning. Teton Springs is also truly blessed with unlimited natural resources. If it’s the lightest and driest powder snow and challenging mountain terrain that is the desired attraction, well, Mother Nature is more than kind to this Grand Teton-Yellowstone region. Teton Springs is one of Idaho’s resorts that sits smack in the middle of two of the country’s most notable western ski icons, Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole.
Both of these ski areas are close enough to their neighboring gem state and could almost claim luxury resort status. The Teton basin and these two mountains receive more than their share of snow each and every winter, typically in fact building up a powder reserve at levels rarely seen at other resorts. Eventually all of that snow does indeed melt and then the fun really begins in Idaho’s resort communities! Idaho resort Teton Springs offers wildlife safaris, luxury spa packages, two golf courses, hot air ballooning over the Tetons and guided fly fishing trips on rivers and streams abundant with cutthroat and fat Rainbow Trout. Like I said, it won’t be long before this beautiful lodge in the Teton Valley is discovered by the world at large. Beat the crowd!
