Vail, CO

Even with the latest $500 million overhaul of Vail and Lionshead villages, many of Vail's hotels still lack defining features, trending more modern-industrial than renovated Victorian. Not the Sonnenalp. Inspired by Ofterschwang, Bavaria, home of the hotel's founders, the Faessler family, this luxurious hotel looks more suited to the Alps than to Colorado's snow-choked I-70 corridor. Pitched...

Big Sky, MT

While some hotels have Presidential Suites, The Summit at Big Sky has presidents in its suites. The Obamas stayed here in summer 2009 during their visit to Yellowstone National Park, just 48 miles to the south. But the First Family missed out on the best season for visiting Big Sky. Winter brings deep snows to the flanks of...

Lake Louise, Alberta Canada

In 1892 a young employee of the Canadian Pacific Railroad named Thomas Wilson came upon a gem of a lake in the Canadian Rockies that sat beneath a towering glacier. He would write in his journal: "As God is my judge, I never in all my explorations saw such a matchless scene." Taking his recommendation, Canadian Pacific would build a one-story log cabin to serve as a hotel for guests who...

Mammoth Lakes, CA

Local purists might knock the Village Lodge as "too Intrawest" for their taste, noting the trademark exposed beam and flagstone exterior that Mammoth's parent company, Intrawest Resorts, gives to all its new properties. Take a minute-long soak in the outdoor hot tub while a steady Sierra snowfall melts into your...

Olympic Valley, CA

The PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn hails from the days of Bogner one-pieces and Norwegian ski sweaters. It was remodeled in 1955 with the aim of giving delegates for the 1960 Winter Olympics, held in Squaw Valley, a comfy, luxurious abode. That mid-century charm still holds in the exterior's wood-shingled facade and...

Snowbird, UT

Most people don't associate oriental rug collections with ski-in/ski-out accommodation. But then again, Snowbird's Cliff Lodge and Spa is hardly your typical Bavarian-styled ski lodge. Under the ownership of resort founder Dick Bass, the Cliff Lodge has evolved into a marvel of modern architecture and interior décor—including Bass' personal collection of hand-woven rugs spread...

Aspen, CO

Sitting at the base of the Aspen Mountain (Ajax to locals) gondola, the Little Nell is one of just three five-star hotels in Colorado. (The others are The Broodmoor in Colorado Springs and Ritz-Carlton in Beaver Creek.) The main hotel wraps around a stunning heated pool, and the adjoining bar is one of the hottest après-ski spots in town. Standard rooms feature 42-inch LCDs, Bose stereo...

Revelstoke, British Columbia Canada

If newer equals better, then the Nelsen Lodge is top dog. Located at the base of British Columbia's one-year-old Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Nelsen Lodge pegs itself as an eco-boutique lodge. Situated right at the base of the Lower Gondola, which serves an amazing 5,620 vertical feet, the largest in North America and fourth largest in the world, the exterior of the hotel has a contemporary...

Park City, UT

After winning gold in front of a hometown crowd at the 1952 Winter Games in Oslo, Norway, Stein Eriksen came to America and put a Norwegian stamp on U.S. skiing. He started at Sugarbush in the East and went on to found ski schools at Aspen, Colorado, and Heavenly, California. In 1981 he became an ambassador for newly opened Deer Valley in Utah, and in 1983, after spending the better part of a...

Carrabassett Valley, ME

Back in the day (the 1990s), the rivalry between Sugarloaf and Sunday River, Maine's two biggest ski hills, was as heated as a Yankees-Red Sox pennant race in October. Sunday River stickers regularly got pasted to the bottoms of urinals at the...
