Basketball Is Not Wes Edens Only Sport Of Interest
Wes Edens, a co-founder of Fortress Investment Group, has added another job to his resume and that it hotelier. Edens, with three other friends, recently opened the Caldera House in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The hotel has eight suites and a members club and conveniently located next to the Jackson Hole’s red tram. Even though the hotel is very bit luxurious, Wes Edens believes it will fit right in with its community.
Though Jackson may seem like a strange place for Wes Edens first hotel, to him it is the perfect location. According to Edens, this is the only place that he has been that he would even consider owning a hotel. Jackson is one of Edens favorite places to escape to. Not only is there plenty of activities year round, but Edens is also fond of the Western vibe that can be found in Jackson.

Not only is Jackson Hole one of Wes Edens favorite ski destinations, but Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has also been ranked America’s top ski resort for the past several years. Edens, a former ski racer, is known for tackling some of Jackson’s most famous runs. He recommends the Hobacks on days when the powder is calling.
The location of the hotel makes it easy to catch the tram for a trip down the mountain. Eden’s hotel also helps skiers get the ultimate skiing adventure. Edens states that the skiing experience at Caldera House begins with the legendary Gov Carrigan. Carrigan is in charge of the Mudroom and runs the ski shop. He is also known for being the best ski technician in all of Jackson. Caldera House also employees the best guides. Even Edens admits that he also has a guide with him when skiing. The alpine club is another perk the hotel offers that comes with a long list of benefits that allows members to concentrate on skiing, and not all of the hassles that come with the sport.
