DAY TRIP

Taste the spirit

If you peer through the windows, Wool and Whiskey looks like a menswear shop stocked with Pendleton jackets, flannel shirts, and piles of jeans. But step inside, and you'll discover a whiskey bar in back- with not just any old whiskey. Three Jackson attorneys hired Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Famer Steve Nally to make Wyoming Whiskey at the state's first legal distillery, and it was finally released in December after almost four years of aging. "We're aiming for something smooth, not like the stuff cowboys homebrewed," says cofounder David DeFazio. The result is an oaky-cinnamony brew, which you can try along with dozens of other artisanal spirits. In Jackson Hole Mountain Resort; jacksonhole.com/ *wool-and-vihiskey.html.

The best pizza in the valley

Il Villaggio Osteria serves housemade salumi and pastas, but it's the pizza that draws locals from Jackson. The crust is made of flour imported from Italy, then spun into pies- like the Guido Sarducci, which is topped with mascarpone cheese, button mushrooms, sausage, and wild arugula- and baked on a stone hearth. $$$; 3335 W.

A lift bikers will cheer for

The Teewinot lift swoops you and your rental bike up 425 vertical feet, then gravity takes care of the rest. Six miles of trails, from mellow to advanced, at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort twist through aspen and pine forests, and give you a decent chance of spotting moose and black bears. Biggest thrill: a 700-foot-long boardwalk through a picturesque boulder field on the Lucky Charm Trail. Lift $35, mountain bike rental $59/haIf-day-, jacksonhole.com.
