Curbed Ski is kicking off winter by releasing a brand-new edition of our Hotel 38 map, our answer to the question, "Where should I stay in ski country?" Just in time for you to make those 2015 ski plans, we've curated the top ski town hotels from east to west, from Stowe to Tahoe, and all the way north to Whistler. While largely of the luxurious nature, we've also made sure to include a range, from classic top-notch hotels like the The Little Nell, to boutique spots like Telluride's Lumiere, and to B&B's loaded with personality like Whitefish's Garden Wall Inn and Vermont's Pitcher Inn. In this edition, we've cut the beautiful but rather remote Dunton Hot Springs and the more golf-oriented Hotel Park City in favor of hotels that are a bit closer to skiing. In their place, Curbed Ski would like to welcome Whistler's Fairmont Chateau and Telluride's Inn at Lost Creek, two hotels where skiing takes priority during the winter months. So without further adieu, we present the best hotels in ski country. Keep in mind that the order follows not from best to worst, but simply from east to west.
For those of you readying your pitchforks because your favorite isn't included, wouldn't it be more productive to tip us for next time? We'll be updating this map periodically, so if we blew it by not including your favorite hotel in ski country, let us know your beef by e-mailing us here.
