It pays to do one’s homework when looking for Idaho’s best ski package deals. While many of Idaho’s hotels, motels and resorts offer all-inclusive packages that include lift tickets, Ski School, meals, lodging, and a possible array of other add-ons, the discriminant shopper needs to insure any given package fits their needs. Teton Springs Lodge & Spa, located in the sprawling 780-acre community of eastern Idaho’s Teton Springs Resort, keeps things simple when it comes to the skiing package deal. With a tradition of really listening to their guests about what is important, the hospitality experts here have put together extremely successful year-round programs.
Idaho State Highway 33 runs north & south through Teton Valley.
While Teton Springs Lodge & Spa in Victor, Idaho, is conveniently accessed by State Highway 33, once you turn off this main drag, you’re instantly immersed and surrounded by the Teton Mountains to the east and the Big Hole Range to the west. And even though Teton Springs Lodge & Spa specializes in Idaho ski package deals, that’s only the beginning of what a visitor will discover here. This boutique hotel in the heart of Teton Valley opened its doors to an anxious public in December 2007, joining an eclectic array of lodging options already established in Teton Valley; Victor, Driggs, Tetonia and Alta. These four charming towns are the focal points of Teton Valley life and in each of these hamlets there are interesting sights to see and activities to pursue.
