The World's Sexiest Winter Lodges

by Jason H. Harper

The lodge: Resorts West's Silver Strike, Park City, Utah

Perfect for you and: Your new girl and her fun-loving friends

Isolation index: 2 out of 10. Sure, it would be fine to stay in Park City, but you want to be the first to bomb down the mountain in the morning and the first to get bombed at night. And while the skiing doesn't get much better than at Deer Valley Resort, mid-mountain's Silver Lake area is a zoo (lots of tourists and crowded parking lots). The best bet? These new ski-in, ski-out homes next to the Empire Pass—they're ensconced in the trees but have direct access to the express Silver Strike lift.

Cold comfort: You'll be met by a personal concierge who takes care of everything from in-room boot fittings to stocking the kitchen's Sub-Zero fridge with Veuve Clicquot. Aspiring snow bunnies and sun-bleached ski bums can mix it up while jamming to the Bang & Olufsen sound system, or head outside to the private grotto and fire pit. And of course there's always the hot tub. Each house has a gas fireplace in the living room and master bedroom, and an interior long on distressed wood and copper—meant to evoke the days when silver-mining tycoons partied in their own mountain manses.

The aphrodisiac: The steam shower at the end of a thigh-busting day. Whom you bring in with you—and how many—is a private matter.
