Jackson Hole Mountain Resort will turn a shade greener next month when Hotel Terra, a LEED-certified property with 72 rooms and suites, opens in Teton Village, 50 steps from the new tram. The eco theme is everywhere—in the efficient windows, passive solar heating, and 80 percent recycled content in the steel beams. And while you probably won't notice that, here's what you will notice: the rooftop hot tub, with views of the Tetons, and rooms decked out with organic cotton sheets and towels, giant down duvets, and Fair Trade coffee. By 2020, owner and elite ski mountaineer Rob DesLauriers plans at least a dozen more green hotels worldwide. Doubles from $395;
