You Can Snowboard With Shaun White — for $185K

In Jackson Hole, Wyo., it doesn’t get much more curative than the Caldera House. Now, the luxury ‘experience’ purveyor dishes out a day of riding with the G.O.A.T. of snowboarding.

Arguably, the conventional way to snowboard with Shaun White used to be going pro in the halfpipe. Thanks to one boutique hospitality company, now you only need $185,000.

The Caldera House programs activities in Jackson Hole toward visitors with a cultivated taste. Located in the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort base area, activities range from a 4-hour Grand Teton National Park wildlife safari to a cooking class with physician chef Annie Fenn, to an afternoon playing polo with a professional.

And the most successful Olympic and X Games competition snowboarder ever just joined the stable.

The Caldera House x Shaun White Signature Snowboarding Experience starts at the “Mudroom” lodge, where you’ll kit out. Then, you’ll ride for the day.

Finally, you’ll choose between an “intimate culinary experience” or après-ski hangs in the Caldera member’s lounge.

Maybe some good news? You don’t have to fork over the entire six-figure chunk by yourself: groups of up to six can sign up. Caldera House also said groups can tailor the day of riding to their experience level and “interest.” And lift tickets plus a suite at the company’s chalet-style digs come included.

The Caldera House was unavailable to clarify several of GearJunkie’s questions as of this writing. It remained unclear whether Shaun White Signature Snowboarding Experience guests were allowed to ski; whether any particular terrain at the resort was open or closed to riding as part of the experience; and for how many dates the company would offer the package.
