As far as Jackson Hole’s set of luxury accommodations are concerned, Hotel Terra has been considered the leader in hip approach to both architecture and amenities. The eco-chic hotel helped set a new bar for ski lodges when it first opened it’s doors in Winter of 2008. After five years of setting Silver-LEED-certificed standards, the hotel is still enjoying buzz and great press. A recent article touted Hotel Terra for it’s clean lines, contemporary art and open floor plans’ as being ‘in.’
Hotel Terra Jackson Hole is in good company in this roundup. The article places it in league with other luxury hospitality category leaders including Viceroy Aspen, the much anticipated ‘W’ Verbier and even inspired new developments in the about-to-blow-up Andermatt, Switzerland.
Rob DesLauiers, owner and developer of Hotel Terra Jackson Hole and Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa (it’s big sister/ predecessor hotel) first envisioned the hotel as a modern approach to traditional alpine hospitality, anticipating that it would appeal to the emerging millenials, many of whom are less impressed with the traditional ski style of its lodge-like forbears. The final result realized an effortlessly chic and almost etherial hideout in the form of hotel rooms and condo hotel configurations of urban studios, one, two and three bedroom suites suiting an increasingly minimalist seeking, albeit fiercely focused, segment of modern day skiers.
