Dakota Mountain Lodge, The Canyons, Utah

Hotel Hot List

Ski country is home to some of the world’s most luxurious lodges, where down featherbeds and Egyptian-cotton sheets are bested only by personal ski valets and snap-to service. Because whether you’re skiing in the glades of Vermont or the bowls of Alberta, the best mountain lodges extend your ski vacation well beyond the slopes.
