As shared by a TCCG guest, “My family and I spent one Thanksgiving in the Elk Refuge, and we long to return. We placed the turkey in the oven at the crack of dawn, and we slow-cooked it while cross-country skiing all day. We drove past big horn sheep and elk almost every time we left the compound. We staged our family Christmas card photo in front of the Tetons, and we relaxed a bit more than usual. The meal was delicious, but that’s beside the point.

Coming to someone else’s home for the holidays reveals a new perspective and invites gratitude. You don’t have to worry about the decorations or shoveling, much less the long-term maintenance of such a dreamy vacation home.”

The Clear Creek Group offers ski-in and ski-out properties, cozy respites, or remote compounds for your entire family. Many of them have master bedroom fireplaces and private decks where you can enjoy a glass of wine while your kids play outside in the freshly fallen snow.

Whether you want to ski all day, or curl up and read a book, these homes have a cache that will make you feel like you are home for the holidays.

“Grocery delivery specialists can lay-in groceries for the week, or private chefs can be on site, cooking dinner when you arrive,” says Villa Rental Manager Chelsea Beets. Rather than wait in line and waste part of your morning on the mountain, “Ski rental boot fitters will come to the home and outfit the family.”

The Clear Creek Group’s full-service staff is capable of facilitating anything you might imagine.  They can arrange homemade cookies with each of your family member’s names on them, installation of a fully-decorated Christmas tree, or even and have stockings hung from the mantle. And the concierge can help you book a sleigh ride on the Elk Refuge, or pair your family with a naturalist for a day in Yellowstone National Park.

If you’re hesitant about visiting Yellowstone under a blanket of white,“The parks are a great place to visit in the summer, but I believe they may be even more magical in wintertime,” Beets says. “Depending on your desire for adventure, you can snowmobile or take a snow coach in Yellowstone.”

Two new Teton Village properties afford the opportunity for you to strap on your skis and shush down to the Moose Creek Chairlift, allowing thrill seekers to ski bell to bell.  Both condominiums both have three bedrooms, hot tubs, and fireplaces to gather ’round.

Just a shuttle ride away, you can spot your day’s ski tracks from the day while relaxing at some of the newest properties in Shooting Star Ranches.

The uniquely “Wyoming” feel of these luxury rental villas makes them cozy, yet they are easily readied for entertaining. And depending on who’s coming, The Clear Creek Group can leave sleds, or games on your doorstep. Call Chelsea to learn more about The Clear Creek Group.
