Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole Opens

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts opens its first mountain resort today at
the base of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Teton Village, just in
time to take advantage of this season`s record-setting, early snowfall and
the best powder conditions in nearly a decade. Surrounded by unspoiled

president, worldwide hotel operations, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
“We welcome the opportunity to provide our brand of warm and friendly
service in a mountain setting for the first time, creating a new luxury
experience for everyone, from family groups and sports enthusiasts to
corporate travelers and meeting participants.”

Sloped gently into the mountainside, the Resort looks out at the Sleeping
Indian and Rendezvous Mountains, the Snake River basin and the wildflower
meadows of the valley. Each of the 106 guest rooms and 18 suites leads out
to a private balcony or terrace, while the lodge-style interiors are
invitingly cozy, with fireplaces, leather headboards and Native American
rugs. Touches of the American West can also be found in the Resort`s three
restaurants, both in decor and cuisine.

At the foot of the longest continuous vertical of any ski area in the
U.S., Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole offers ski-in/ski-out access to
lifts and an aerial tram. The Resort`s Ski Concierge—the first of its
kind in the area—will arrange lift tickets, lessons, rentals and
special services, including in-room boot fittings. In the warmer months,
guests can consult the Base Camp Concierge for help with planning and
preparing outdoor adventures that range from hiking to fly fishing.

The Resort offers a full-service spa, complete with Tranquility Lounge,
fully heated outdoor pool and whirlpools, and a fitness centre. Supervised
activities are available for children aged six months to 17 years. The
property`s function and banquet space totals 743 square metres (8,000
square feet); features include fireplaces and an outdoor terrace opening
onto a function lawn.
