Despite what the popular ski rags may indicate, Idaho ski packages rank high in the minds of the serious winter recreation seeker. The more notable ski states like Colorado and Utah may enjoy a broader reputation, especially among international ski enthusiasts. However, Idaho areas can easily stand proud for the sheer number of quality resorts located in the northern regions of the state all the way to the far corners of eastern Idaho. In a state more famous for their potatoes than their skiing, Idaho offers a variety of ski resorts boasting light, dry powder, snow that entices skiers and snowboarders to their slopes beginning in November each year.
Skiing at Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
The discriminant winter vacation shopper will also discover that Idaho ski packages can easily compete with the other Rocky Mountain giants when it comes to sheer acres of mountain terrain, annual snowfall, family programs, terrain parks and resort amenities. Mega resorts such as Vail, Aspen, Park City, Telluride, Deer Valley, Snowbird & Alta may steal most of the thunder but winter recreation areas such as Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort always deserve a serious look. Just their scenic beauty alone is unparalleled anywhere in North America. After all, what area can compete with the splendor of the Grand Tetons?!
Skiing, Snowboarding, and Much More
Idaho’s packages, ski and snowboarding, that guarantee the best value will be found at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa. These folks put together a variety of winter adventure options filled with activities that everyone in the family can enjoy. For the adults in the group it usually means a trip or two to the Stillwaters Spa & Salon. It’s so convenient to both visitors in the luxury mountain log homes or guests staying in the Lodge. Located on the first floor of the Lodge, the Stillwaters Spa is a major draw for visitors and it’s also proven to be Teton Valley’s go-to spot for a variety of quality spa offerings.
The spa & salon offers a complete menu of services including massage therapy, body treatments, hair, nail, facial and skin care. It’s the most tranquil setting and the staff is also top notch, each therapist with their own area of expertise. After a day of many ski turns in the Tetons, or snowmobiling in the Big Hole Mountains, a hot steam & dip in the hot tub followed by a deep-tissue massage is usually in order. The Stillwaters Spa features custom massages to fit your needs; a massage at this facility is virtually a slice of heaven and a growing body of evidence suggests that a good massage has varied health benefits.
Pamper Yourself after a day on the Mountain
Anyone who has had a memorable treatment will indeed testify to both the positive physical and mental ramifications of a well-delivered massage. I know I’m personally willing to skimp on just about everything else to get my muscles regularly kneaded and untangled, and, a massage serves as a solid reminder of the striking connection of our mind/body connection . In addition to your body feeling rejuvenated, it’s more than simply anecdotal evidence that massage reduces emotional stress. It’s nearly impossible to not feel a profound sense of well-being after a massage.
Ski and winter packages at Teton Springs Resort will often include a spa treatment. You can also ask the experts at this property to customize a package for you. The only limitations you’ll find with package offerings is perhaps enough time to indulge in everything this Yellowstone-Teton region has to offer. Indulge!
