Tetons Day Tripping

Jackson Hole is a comfortable, deluxe vacation paradise. Why slog into the backcountry when you can stay in a hotel and "send" awesome routes each day? If that question utterly offends you, check out the Wind River Range. But if you dig the idea of civilized accommodations with hard climbing each day, this could be a sweet option for you.
