Hollywood Goes Cowboy Here

With its fresh mountain air and rugged Western vibe, Jackson Hole is the place where stars like Sandra Bullock get away from it all in their shearling coats. There's no lack of five-star accommodations, but one favorite is the Four Seasons (rooms from $195; fourseasons.com), which is perched slopeside in Teton Village (Julia Louis-Dreyfus has stayed there). Rush back after a day of skiing or hiking to one of the three outdoor hot tubs with jaw-dropping views of the 13,000-foot Tetons. If you can't snag a good rate at the Four Seasons, try the Teton Mountain Lodge (rooms from $109; tetonlodge.com), which boasts a brand new spa and a gear-lending closet stocked with the latest equipment from Cloudveil, Kelty, and other top manufacturers.

Ask about the gym in Jackson and the locals will probably give you a funny look. Why pump iron when you can hike, ski, bike, climb, kayak, or run in spectacular surroundings? Instead, stretch your legs after a long flight or car trip on the four-mile loop past Taggart Lake (it's an easy to moderate hike or trail run).

If all that activity inspires you to get serious about your fitness goals back home, though, stop by One to One Wellness, a boutique gym whose trainers are all exercise physiologists. Whether you want to lose 10 pounds or run a 10k, they'll test your VO2 max and resting metabolic rate, assess your posture, and give you a take-home workout plan (from $275; 121wellness.com).
