Find a high-altitude escape for every season at these scenic adventurelands
You hardly even need to pedal on most of the beginner trails at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Bike Park ($35/day; jacksonhole.com)—you just glide. Access the park’s six trails via the Teewinot Lift, then speed down 4-foot-wide, luge-track-smooth paths. Don’t miss the Lucky Charm trail, where you’ll pedal over a 377-foot-long wooden bike bridge. You'll find plenty to be thrilled about off the mountain, too. For a small town, Jackson packs big-city punch when it comes to lodging and dining—at places like the Kitchen, where Wagyu flank steak is topped with pecan butter and served with foie gras Yukon Gold potatoes ($$$; 155 N. Glenwood St.; 307/734-1633).
Stay: Tour the collection of cowboy paintings before turning in at down- town’s Wort Hotel (worthotel.com). Not sleepy? The hotel’s Silver Dollar Bar has killer jalapeño margaritas, live bluegrass, and more than 2,000 coins inlaid in its bar top. From $389.
