I’m one of those crazy people who loves snow and winter. I don’t necessarily like the freezing cold temperatures, but I love being outdoors skiing, sledding or snowshoeing during the day and snuggled up by a roaring fire at night. So while many of you are probably dreaming of the beach right now, I wouldn’t mind a winter weekend getaway to a cozy mountain lodge.
Here are some really incredible winter lodges that offer something for everyone:

Snake River Lodge & Spa

Teton Village, Wyoming
How often is it that you get a good value, fantastic location and incredible spa all in one place? At the Snake River Lodge & Spa you’ll find yourself at the foot of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. You can’t beat the location and convenience of the full service ski valet. When you’re done skiing, enjoy yourself in the hot tub or book a session at the 17,000 square foot 5-story spa with view of the mountains.

Emerald Lake Lodge

Field, British Columbia
If jetting off to the Canadian Rockies and visiting the famous jewel-colored lake is on your travel list, then consider staying at the historic Emerald Lake Lodge. Located in Yoho National Park on a private island, you probably won’t get good cell phone reception, but you’ll have full access to some of the most stunning wilderness anywhere in the world. Spend the day outside, the nights in front of a roaring fire and fill your tummy with Rocky Mountain cuisine and fine wine.
