Kicking off Ski Season with Luxurious Offerings from the Rockies to the Alps
Amangani, Jackson Hole

To celebrate the milestone 50th anniversary of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Amangani will offer its guests the exclusive complimentary use of Foil Skis; handmade, elegant performance skis by family-owned Foil. Originating from Northern Italy, each Foil ski is a true work of art offering a completely different skiing experience and this is the first time the skis will be available at a US ski resort. Amangani guests will have access to the use of the Riserva (slalom) and the Classico (all-mountain) skis in the comfort of the Amangani Ski Lounge at the base of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and will be amongst the first in the US to experience these handcrafted skis. The resort will also host a series of Italian-inspired evenings throughout the season featuring wine and cheese tastings for skiers to enjoy after a day on the slopes. The skis will debut at Amangani on December 28, 2015 and will be available throughout the winter season.
