Travel writer Kathy Petrino says “why not Wyoming?”

Listed among the top places to visit in winter, Jackson Hole, Wyoming offers perfect slopes for skiing and snowboarding to guests, including ones like travel writer Kathy Petrino who enjoys checking out new locations and sharing details with potential visitors. And as Kathy Petrino can attest, the upscale resorts of Jackson Hole are a dream come true in this small town. When escaping the snowy hills, travelers can look at the sites of Grand Teton National Park — or venture the 60 miles north to the bigger, grander Yellowstone National Park — or even seek a glimpse of some of the United States’ most beautiful animals at the National Elk Refuge. For those with a need to relax, especially after a tough and adventurous day, the Granite Hot Springs has just what you’re looking for as well.
