Ski + Snowboard

The World's Best Après-Ski Scenes

by Sarah Tuff

Hottest Private Hot Tub

Where: Game Creek Chalet, Vail, Colorado

What'll Snow You: The bubbly views from 10,500 feet

Cool Conditions: Vail's private Game Creek Chalet is perched in the trees of Game Creek Bowl, so skiers can end their day yodeling on high instead of battling the bottlenecks down below. While others are still caught in the base-area brouhaha, Game Creek guests can be soaking in the six-person hot tub on the deck and reveling in the views of the White River Forest and the entire Vail Valley. You can even choose your first run of the next day from the tub, by peering onto Lost Boy and Dealer's Choice, two ideal warm-ups. But first, there is the evening, and the chalet, all to yourself. A personal chef in the kitchen is preparing hors d'oeuvres, popping Veuve Clicquot, and marinating the venison loin; otherwise, your only companions are the clouds in the sunset-golden sky and the special person (or people) seminaked next to you.

The Cold Cash: From $4,500 per night; includes breakfast, lift tickets, half-day private ski instruction, and dinner; accommodates up to four
