The Teton-ringed valley is known for its 3,000 acres of accessible backcountry terrain and some of the most challenging skiing in all of North America—not to mention scenery that is equally thrilling. Even if vertical slopes aren't your thing, both Teton Village and the town of Jackson offer tons of après-ski diversions, with upscale vintage shops and farm-to-table restaurants popping up alongside classic steakhouses and blanket-and-moccasin stores. Stop by Persephone Bakery for Insta-worthy quinoa bowls or the Anvil Hotel's mercantile for a pair of deerskin gloves.
