Where to Stay: Spring Creek Ranch Aspen's Rocky Mountain setting is picturesque, and there are four mountains catering to all levels of skiers. One lift ticket grants access to all four mountains, although only top-notch skiiers should try their hand, er, ski, at Aspen Mountain.
Where to Stay: The Little Nell Big Sur is one of the most stunning places in the world, defined by its redwood forests and craggly cliffs plummeting into the Pacific Ocean. With beautiful landscapes and natural thermal springs, Big Sur is a place that encourages soul searching, and there are numerous hippie camps, spas, and spiritual retreats in the area.
Where to Stay: Post Ranch Inn The largest ski area in Park City and the fifth largest in the U.S., The Canyons is the more laid-back, family-friendly option in Park City. The Canyons was opened shortly after Park City Mountain, and in recent years has been updated with new lifts and slopes. During the summer, there are weekly farmer's markets with delicious produce for more of nature's best.
Where to Stay: Sundial Lodge at Canyons Resort Salt Lake City is well-known as being the the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, so it’s obvious why is nightlife scene is a bit less vibrant than those of other western cities. Instead, outdoor activities have became the major draw for tourists here. Salt Lake boasts beautiful biking and hiking trails and great rock climbing spots. Fishing and boating are popular in the summer, and, of course, skiing and snowboarding dominate in the winter.
Where to Stay: The Grand American Hotel Beaver Creek is less pretentious than its sister ski area, Vail. There are great outdoor activities year-round -- in the summer, visitors can partake in kayaking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, hiking, and mountain biking; and in the winter, country skiing, snowshoeing, and even dog sledding.
Where to Stay: The Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa, Beaver Creek Although it’s not quite as pretentious as Aspen, Vail is one of the Rocky Mountains' most luxurious resort towns. Vail is the country’s largest single-mountain ski resort, and is continually ranked as one of the most popular ski resorts in the country. But come during the warmer months and you'll be in no short supply of great outdoor activities, from hiking to rafting and kayaking.
Where to Stay: Vail Cascade Resort and Spa Snowmass Village is the more laid-back, family-friendly option in Aspen. It's at the base of Snowmass Mountain, the largest mountain in Aspen, which offers a variety of slopes to accomodate all levels of skiers. One lift ticket allows visitors access to all four mountains in the Aspen area.
Where to Stay: The Villas at Snowmass Club A little town with quite a history, Telluride is the place where Butch Cassidy robbed his first bank back in 1889. Today, the area has some great skiing, mountain biking, and festivals, and offers more of a typical Wild West mountain village vibe than the (say some) pretentious towns of Aspen or Vail. In fact, Southwest Colorado, as a whole, is much more laid-back and casual than its ritzy counterparts.
Where to Stay: Lumiere Hotel Lake Tahoe is one of the premier four-season destinations in the country, offering a beautiful combination of clear skies, heavy winter snows, and the blue lake waters backed by the picturesque Sierra Nevada Mountains. The lovely Squaw Valley, the site of the 1960 Olympics, is an upscale ski village in North Tahoe, and offers fine views of the mountains and valley, whether guests are playing golf, swimming, dog-sledding, or ice skating.
Where to Stay: Resort at Squaw Creek Deer Valley is the ultra-luxe area of Park City, with glamour similar to that in Aspen. The slopes are well-groomed, and many 2002 Winter Olympics events took place here.
Where to Stay: Montage Deer Valley Tahoe Vista at Lake Tahoe is on North Lake Boulevard in the northern region of Lake Tahoe. Tahoe City is is an artsy area with a small-town feel, and is close to numerous mountains. The area is great for skiers, hikers, or boaters.
