 If you must make first chair, the Bavarian, fashioned after the lodges of its namesake region, is your best bet. With only five suites, each named after Bavarian kings and castles and decorated with European antiques, it’s hard to believe this lodge is midmountain at Taos Ski Valley—until you step outside and hop the Kachina chair for first tracks. Authentic sauerbraten and kalbsbratwurst in the lodge’s restaurant amp up the Old World appeal. $275—$600 per night; 888-205-8020; thebavarian.com
