The trip, designed especially for affluent travelers looking for an over-the-top approach to a ski getaway, includes custom handmade skis, in-home local whiskey and beer tastings and more. Not to mention the opportunity to experience the destination’s well-sought-after real estate.
The Clear Creek Group specializes in luxury vacation rentals and has more than 50 properties in its portfolio ranging from one to ten-bedrooms. All homes are located within Jackson Hole with easy access to the award-winning slopes for prime winter exploration. The expansive portfolio includes Riva Ridge, a ten-bedroom lodge on 125 acres including a private recording studio and indoor Carrera marble pool. Windswept Ranch, a six-bedroom home offers stunning views of the open Wyoming sky and is a favorite for stargazing. The five-bedroom Phillips Ridge includes an indoor bowling alley, grotto pool and movie theater.
A brief outline of the five-day experience is as follows:
• Day One: On-site visit to Jackson-Hole-based Igneous Skis’ production line for a tour of the factory. Here, guests will be fitted for custom handmade wood-core powder skis.
• Day Two: After a day exploring the slopes, guests retire to their home for a special après ski session courtesy of Wyoming Whisky. Made in the Big Horn Basin, this small-batch bourbon whiskey has been a hit since its release last year and is a local favorite.
• Day Three: Guests meet their private guide for exclusive early-access backcountry skiing on Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
• Day Four: Private snowmobile tour in the Gros Ventre wilderness where sightings of big horn sheep, elk, moose and deer are common. Following the tour, an in-home beer tasting is provided by local favorite, Snake River Brewing Company.
• Day Five: Enjoy another day of skiing the slopes of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort!
