Access Backcountry Powder With Amangani Resort’s Heli & Cat Ski Packages


Nestled in among Jackson Hole’s mountains, the Amangani luxury resort is a go-to for elite skiers and snowboarders, and it has the awards to prove it, including its ranking in the top three ‘Best Small Resorts’ in America by Condé Nast Traveler and its third place finish in the ‘Top 50 Ski Hotels’ by Condé Nast Traveler-USA. Perched on the edge of East Gros Ventre Butte, 7,000 feet above sea level, the resort is surrounded by spectacular mountain ranges, including the Grand Teton, a 13,770-foot mountain offering some of the world’s most challenging slopes.

Guests looking for exclusive access to this incredible Rocky Mountain range will love the Amangani’s packages. For the ultimate thrill, the hotel offers a heli-skiing package which brings guests across 305,000 acres of terrain in a Bell 407 helicopter, with access to the Snake River and Palisades Mountain Ranges, as well as portions of the Hoback, Teton and Gros Ventre Mountain Ranges. The package includes six runs a day, transportation to and from the helipad, daily massages and a Dakine Heli Pro Backpack.

The backcountry guide package lets enthusiasts explore secluded terrain outside the regular boundaries, with access to thousands of acres of backcountry skiing via an experienced guide. Meanwhile, the cat skiing package gives skiers and snowboarders access to a huge powder reserve of over 600 acres and up to 20,000 vertical feet in a day via a Snowcat. Guests will get to follow a professional guide through expansive bowls, gladed cruisers and steep tree pitches to access the best cat skiing in Wyoming.
