How to enjoy Wild West

The gorgeous landscapes of Utah, Wyoming and Montana seem to embody the very spirit of America: independent yet welcoming, beautiful yet a little untamed—and thankfully, the Wild West now comes with room service

  • Reveling in the wonders of national parks is a must: Among the most popular are Montana and Wyoming’s Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Glacier
  • Saddle up for a real cattle drive in Montana, where Triple Creek Ranch takes you back in time for an afternoon of herding dogies
  • View the 80-foot rock wall mural—a jaw-dropping prehistoric art piece—in the Great Gallery deep inside Utah’s Canyonlands National Park

For centuries, the American West’s siren song has promised adventure and plenty of room to breathe. And while it still delivers on adventure, roughing it has given way to hotels with museum-quality art collections (Four Seasons Jackson Hole), cabins that are nicer than your house (Montana’s Triple Creek Ranch) and heated gondolas that whisk you to prime ski spots (Waldorf Astoria Park City).

Speaking of skiing, it’s the main draw for many who journey to Big Sky Country. Top resorts offer ski-in/ski-out convenience, along with access to the best mountains. Not in the mood for skiing or snow boarding? Wildlife safaris inside and outside the great national parks let you get up close and personal with animals you’ve only seen in the zoo—or try your hand at fishing in Montana’s Snake River.

    When to visit Wild West

    Winter in the western states is Cold with a capital “C”—it would be annoying if it didn’t create ideal skiing conditions. Late spring through early fall are the best seasons to visit if you’re more interested in hiking or visiting the national parks.

    National parks can get crazy-crowded during the summer, so ask park rangers for lesser-known hiking trails to escape the crush.
