Jackson Hole, Wyoming
You can call it Jackson Hole or Jackson, it doesn't matter. Either works. The gateway town to Grand Teton National Park is a quaint little place, filled with the rich and famous. The skiing is great, the rest estate is expensive.
Getting to Jackson Hole from the west by a car involves a bit of a climb up windy roads. You're even likely to see a little snow at the top, even in the summer. Then you hit the top of the pass, get out of that car, and look east ... and you'll get the view shown above. Then you'll know why you came.
If a chalet is out of your price range, there are plenty of smaller hotels in town and plenty of places to eat. If you go, say hello to Harrison Ford if you bump into him.
