    The holidays are finally behind you. If you find yourself yearning for a vacation from your vacation, consider taking advantage of the new direct flight on United Airlines from NYC to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Bundle up your brood and escape (for just a little while longer)! We’re loving these Clear Creek Group getaways that look positively decadent:

    This classic 1940s log-cabin is perfect for families who want to stay warm and cozy after a day of skiing. Set into a hillside on the beautiful slopes of Snow King and built around a massive central column of fieldstone which houses a wood-burning fireplace, the three-bedroom lodging is beautifully updated and furnished with handcrafted antiques. Hit the slopes for a day of skiing and sledding, head back home to warm your toes in front of the fire, and finish up with board games before tucking the kids into bed.

    Prairie’s End
    If you’ve got a larger crew, Prairie’s End is a weathered, 200-year-old barn that was converted into a dazzling, luxury getaway. The five-bedroom property includes a sleeping loft, a guest cabin, and plenty of space to indulge in the quiet and serenity of the winter wilderness. Wake to moose and elk wandering past the large picture windows. Go on long hikes and scout for eagles and fox. Take up snowshoeing and ice fishing. And, of course, the best skiiing in Jackson Hole is just a short drive away.

    Slopeside Aprés Vous
    This striking log lodge is snuggled into the mountainside, below which lies the bustling Teton Village. A traffic-free road from the cabin allows for a quick downhill ski to the Village for lunch–and easy access to the trails and the Aprés Vous lift nearby. Ski from the slope right down to the lodge terrace, step out of your boots and into the hot tub, and then cozy up in front of the massive stone fireplace. A spacious five-bedrooms, the property boasts gorgeous vaulted ceilings and massive floor to ceiling windows that invite you to take in the best that winter has to offer.
