Looking for a quiet luxury resort with one-of-a-kind spectacular views without paying peak season prices for your ski trip? Spring Creek Ranch, which tucks its 1,000 acres on a wildlife sanctuary between [R191R, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort] and the town of Jackson, bustles in summer during high season, but winter is another story.

Many of the inn rooms and condominiums at the ranch in winter run more than $100 less than summer rates, but the ranch still offers plenty of winter fun including dining and spa treatments. The ranch can book sleigh rides, ice skating, snowmobiling, snowshoe tours, snow coach tours into Yellowstone, wildlife-watching safaris, and all types of skiing-cross-country, downhill, backcountry, and heli.

The luxury ranch, which sits 1,000 feet above Jackson Hole, garners monster views from its location. The Teton Mountains ascend across the valley with the Grand Teton spire visible from the Granary Restaurant's floor-to-ceiling windows. The location also is prime for hopping to [R12R, Snow King], Jackson Hole, or [R157R, Grand Targhee] for skiing or snowboarding.

The ranch offers winter ski free packages that start at $87.50 per person per night. Accommodations for the package are in a deluxe hotel room with a wood-burning fireplace, breakfast at the Granary Restaurant, and three-day lift tickets to Jackson Hole or Grand Targhee. Rates, which are based on a four-night minimum between Nov. 27 and April 3, require double occupancy.

Shuttle services are available to and from the airport as well as shuttles into downtown Jackson and to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

You also can create your own custom ski vacation with a three-night minimum. You can select where you want to ski, breakfast and dinner plans, your preferred type of lodging from a room inn to condominium or mountain villa, and spa treatments. You also can add on other winter sports.
