Where to Take Her

The region's best ski and board mountains

  • 03 January 2014

Because every man needs a plan, and some of us need that plan with pretty pictures, we present Where to Take Her: a series that answers a gentleman's most pressing lifestyle questions and recurs whenever we get around to it.

This go-round: our picks for skiing getaways, from high-tone to rustic. Put on your goggles.

Taos's Bavarian Chalet: Twenty-five percent of Taos’s 115 slopes are greens, and there’s a brand new 18,000-square-foot kiddie center with daycare. Book the modish, ski-in/ski-out Bavarian Chalet.

Alta's Snowpine Lodge: Home to some of America’s trickiest chutes, Alta also boasts the newly renovated Snowpine Lodge, a slopeside destination sporting a new spa.

Park City's Washington School House: Offering a heated rooftop pool overlooking the mountains, this hip boutique is within walking distance of Park City’s restaurants, serves delicious après-ski food and provides in-room massage treatments.

Aspen's Sky Hotel: A mountainside haunt where the plush rooms are designed with a Downhill Racer feel, and the on-premise nightclub bumps the likes of Empire of the Sun. Book now for the X Games parties at the end of January.

Powder Mountain: This is what skiing used to be like — no frills, just over 500 inches of snow per year on a series of intense 2,500-foot vertical drops and 4,000 acres of backcountry. Stay at the Trapper Ridge, where you'll have your own hot tub.
