Designed in circa-1900 national-park-lodge fashion, Hotel Park City opened in early 2002, bringing a new level of luxe to the lodging scene (Deer Valley notwithstanding). Skiers hitting all three resorts will like its location, as well as the on-demand shuttles to ferry them to and fro. The resort comprises 11 miles of cross-country trails, two championship golf courses and an 8,000-square-foot spa. Rooms are elegantly decorated with king beds, flagstone fireplaces, triple-head showers and living areas with TV, DVD and Bose surround sound. The new spa and fitness center might make it hard to leave-if only that Utah powder wasn’t quite so addictive. The winning element, though, is the service: The staff stays tuned in via headsets to satisfy guest’s requests-a concession to New World hospitality in a rustic setting.$299-$3,000; 435-940-5000; hotelparkcity.com
