TETON VILLAGE, Wyo. -- The Teton Mountain Lodge, unveiled in late 2002, offers another take on luxury skiing at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

With 80 condominium units, the Destination Hotels & Resorts property benefits from the expertise of managing partner Rob DesLauriers, who has been featured in extreme-skiing films and founded the international X-Team Advanced Ski Clinic.

The five-night Jackson Hole Powder Adventure package makes the most of DesLauriers input as well as of the resorts powdery slopes, which draw extreme skiers every year.

Priced from $680 per person, the package includes five nights slopeside accommodations, a three-day lift ticket at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and a daylong guided powder adventure into the backcountry surrounding the resort. Participants also get breakfast and a copy of Ski the Whole Mountain, co-authored by DesLauriers.

A four-night Skiers Dream package includes accommodations, lift tickets for three days and daily breakfast buffet from $435 per person, double. A family version of the Skiers Dream package also is available, featuring one-, two- or three-bedroom Lodge condos.

Families also can opt for a four-night Family Winter Adventure, with two adults and two children under age 10 in a one-bedroom suite, a day of skiing at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, a half-day dogsled trip to Granite Hot Springs and a snowmobile trip into the Gros Ventre Mountains. The package starts at $622 per person.
