Jackson Hole might be in the middle of nowhere in the Rocky Mountains, but it's the go-to place for serious skiers and snowboarders.

Its isolated location means you don't get the crowds of other European and North American resorts.

Couple this with the challenging terrain, excellent conditions and spectacular backcountry skiing (on unmarked slopes), and you have the ideal honeymoon for adventure-loving couples.

Wake up at the Four Seasons in Teton Village and you're just 20 steps from the ski lift.

The hotel is classic American West with lashings of Navajo fabric and leather, cowboy-hatted doormen, plus elk steak at the Westbank Grill or all-American food in the Handle Bar.

For a night out, head to nearby Jackson, famous for its wooden sidewalks and Wild-West saloons.

WOW FACTOR: After a day on the slopes, try the heated outdoor pools with views of the snowy Tetons. Sip a hot Pillow Line cocktail - hot chocolate, Grey Goose La Poire vodka and Grand Marnier. Heaven!

FLIGHT TIME: 15 hours.
