Ski + Snowboard

The World's Sexiest Winter Lodges

by Jason H. Harper

The lodge: Adara Hotel, Whistler, Canada

Perfect for you and: Your id

Isolation index: 1 out of 10. The whole point of this scene is to be un-isolated.

Cold comfort: Okay, you're not into the antler aesthetic, you are happily single, and you have no intention of sleeping alone tonight. Locals don't call Whistler "Swillster" for nothing: This is the most happening ski party scene in North America, where après can take place before, during, and after the ski day. The party is inclusive, too—February's weeklong WinterPRIDE is the biggest gay-oriented event anywhere on the slopes. Bring the party back to the boutique Adara Hotel (view slideshow), where the rooms have funky-cool furniture and fireplaces cleverly built into cabinets. Oh, the lobby does have antlers, but they're made of resin.

The aphrodisiac: The libations and flirtations that begin on the patio of the Garibaldi Lift Co. Bar & Grill and eventually segue into general naughtiness and table dancing at Buffalo Bills nightclub. Arrive on a Wednesday to meet all the fit ski instructors and young hotties that work the lifts during the day.
