When the Dixie Chicks sang of wide open spaces they may have been referring to Wyoming, the tenth-largest but least populous of all the US states.

If it is Western hospitality you are after, this spot in mountain country will be music to your ears.

Compose a retreat to your own beat with an escape to The Lexington at Jackson Hole Hotel and Suites for a one-night stay for two in a suite ($99). Find perfect harmony in your accommodations, featuring two queen beds and a living area, pillow-top mattresses, a microwave, mini-fridge and complimentary wi-fi. Your stay also includes round-trip airport shuttle service between 7 am and 9 pm.

Hop on the ski shuttle to Teton Village and hit the slopes, boasting 450 inches of annual snowfall, using your discounted lift tickets (for an additional fee).

"Knee-deep powder and a backdrop of the soaring Grand Tetons greet skiers at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort," says Frommer's. "Steep slopes and challenging drop-offs are the norm at this resort, a favourite among enthusiasts."

Another option that is sure to be a hit is exploring Grand Teton National Park, where trails lead hikers and horseback riders through the aspen trees. Get in tune with nature and take a snowshoeing tour through the backcountry — you will end up seeing more moose than people.

After a long day of outdoor activity, relax in the indoor hot tub or heated pool before heading to Snake River Grill for a laid-back atmosphere and chart-topping dishes. Try the parmesan-truffled shoe-string potatoes and elk osso buco, or a New York steak served with a Yukon potato, baked in sea salt and topped with bleu cheese butter. Fiddle around town after dinner and stop by the lobby for a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie and a cup of hot chocolate before getting cosy in your room.

The next morning, indulge in a melody of food at breakfast, featuring favourites like handmade waffles, biscuits with gravy, ham-and-cheese croissants, along with fruit, yogurt and cereal before boarding the complimentary shuttle to the airport. After taking this pitch-perfect escape to Jackson Hole, you will be begging for an encore.
