If you’ve been dreaming of gliding your way through a fresh blanket of snow, then one of these new ski hotels can provide you with an ideal starting point. Far from being rustic or woodsy, these destinations offer a long list of comforts and amenities.

Limelight Snowmass Hotel
First, the Limelight Snowmass Hotel, located in Snowmass, Colorado, provides much more than just a place to hang up your skis. Here you will find hot tubs, outdoor fire pits, an ice skating rink, and a workout room, along with plenty of activities for the kids. In fact, even if Fido needs some time off, he (or she) is welcome at this pet-friendly location.

Hotel Talisa
Situated in the beautiful mountains of Vail, Colorado, Hotel Talisa is actually the fully renovated version of the former Vail Cascade Resort and Spa. The rooms here offer fantastic views from the floor to ceiling windows. When not skiing down the slopes, you can relax in one of the hotel’s two hot tubs or swim a few laps in the infinity pool. Kids are welcome, too, and can join the hotel’s kid’s club program, which provides plenty of fun activities for the younger crowd.
