Jackson Hole’s newest boutique bolthole, Caldera House offers a thoroughly modern way to bond with America’s favorite big mountain.

The specs are high. Entirely private, each suite is fitted with a large chef’s kitchen (stocked on request before arrival), an elegant dining room, deep soaker tubs, a secluded patio with a fire pit, and even a cinema room. Sanctuary of sanctuaries, Caldera House is poised to ensure access to both the first and last tracks-

with a throw-draped lounge chair in which to unwind after another fantastic day’s skiing.
J nspi red by the beauty of the destination and the salty legends who built it, Caldera House has been handsomely designed and meticulously constructed with a no-expense-spared budget ringing in the north of $100 million. Every comfort has been the considered-an approach for which your powder-addled body will thank you. Caldera brings cool contemporary tones and

lavish sense of space to the modern mountain retreat-the four-bedroom suites stretch over an eye-popping 5,000 square feet and the similarly grand two-bedroom suites have a 1,500 square foot reach, warmed by an updated take on the Americana cabin and elegant collection of local art and European furnishings. Master bedrooms feature a private hot tub on the patio, bathrooms are warmed by heated floors and equipped with steam showers and large soaker tubs. Spacious living areas feature a wood-burning fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows, chef’s kitchen, mudroom, laundry room, and a private outdoor balcony equipped with Sol we fire pit, a gas grill, and snowmelt patios.
Caldera Blouse guests and savvy visitors are well-placed for dining at Old Yellowstone Garage, whose gourmet Italian fare will be familiar to Jackson regulars.

Long a beloved (and briefly shuttered) local institution, it’s now revived in an elegant new home. For lighter options, the slope-facing Southcable Cafe is perfect for a quick bite during the day. Caldera House guests also enjoy the use of the private lounge in a third-floor nest with a wood­burning fireplace, heated patio, and a full-service bar with food from Old Yellowstone Garage. Guests are invited to a complimentary breakfast each morning before yet another foray into the ever-snowy Wyoming mountainscape.
As we’ve come to expect, and indeed anticipate, apres-ski life at the spa is a treat for sore limbs and a tonic for the soul. Here, slip into an infinity hot plunge, a dry sauna, and state-of-the-art fitness/yoga studio. A range of personalized treatments can be arranged either in-suite or in the treatment room, as may yoga lessons and personal training. It’s also possible to reserve the gym or spa for sole use.

Pop down to the on-site ski shop operated by renowned local Gov Carrington, for sought-after hand-tuning, boot fitting, and top-of-the-line equipment for purchase or rental. Select your ski kit, et voila, the ski valet delivers it straight to the Caldera House ski rack at the base of the mountain.
Beyond its guise as a swish suite hotel, Caldera House also serves as an alpine club whose memberships benefits include ski tuning and demos at The Mudroom, ski valet service, parking, and lockers for seasonal use and year-round storage. Members have access to Caldera House lounge, spa facilities, fitness studio, kids’ room, and the knowledgeable Caldera House concierge for their Jackson itineraries from private guides and heli-skiing to nights on the town.
