The Great Indoors: Jackson Hole Spas

With full-service spas threatening to outnumber ski shops at the resort’s base, Jackson Hole has obviously learned to relax as hard as it recreates.
Western Zen rules at Solitude Spa Teton Mountain Lodge, where all 10 treatment rooms feature the work of the area’s best designer — Mother Nature — through expansive windows.
Letting the vistas provide the grandeur, the Health Center at Amangani is spare, simple, and soft. The four redwood treatment rooms are calming cocoons of coddling.
The très hip Snake River Lodge’s Avanyu Spa has warm, woody “locker rooms” the size of the local airport, and with its colossal fireplaces, rain showers, hot tub, sauna, and Turkish terrycloth robes, you’ll be taking off without an airplane.
You might not expect to see works by Miró in Wyoming, much less in a Wyoming spa, but the Four Seasons spa always seeks to exceed guests’ expectations.
The best is the kaiserschmarrn (emporer’s trifle) for dessert, a mash of broken up pancake, raisins and powdery white sugar, with sides of jams to make the mess even sweeter.
