The perfect ski town cabin is essential to the perfect ski trip. Here is my secret stash of cabin perfection, all nestled in “hot spots” for skiing. Enjoy!
The Log Cabin Motel, Pinedale WY
The Log Cabin Motel is hidden in the sleepy little town of Pinedale. But don’t let the dusty appearance and one stop light fool you; this is the gateway to the Wind River Range and only an hour and a half from Jackson Hole. These little ski town cabin are vintage timepieces with true western charm. And sleepy Pinedale shifts into a bustling snowmobile Mecca once the snow hits.
Elk Lake Lodge, Bend OR
Nestled in the stunning Cascade Range Elk Lake Lodge is accessible in winter via an all terrain snow-vehicle (think transformers) or by snowmobile. The fleet of rustic ski town cabin sit on the ice frosted Elk Lake with vistas of South Sister and Mount Bachelor. With a snowmobile fuel station, easy backcountry ski access, and a picturesque bar complete with antler chandeliers, this is the spot to be in the winter. There are also outlying basic huts with bunks and a small heater, perfect for a budget weekend snow-venture.
