Concierge.com's insider take:

Consider the Solaris Vail Village's de facto town square. With an outdoor ice-skating rink at its core, the Shops at Solaris lures passersby with upscale boutiques like Luca Bruno and Tommy Bowers Ski, hot-list restaurants (the Vail outpost of Matsuhisa opened inside Solaris in 2011), and entertainment venues including bowling and a cinema. Rising eight stories above it all, Solaris offers 79 roomy residences ranging from two to four bedrooms. Average size of a three-bedroom? An impressive 2,350 square feet. The residences are swanky, with custom cherrywood accents throughout, limestone in the bathroom, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances in the gourmet kitchens, and Colorado sandstone to lend a warm ambience. The high-tech touches include Crestron computer touch-screen systems that control lighting, climate, and the entertainment system; you can also communicate with the front desk and concierge. (Need the car brought around? Ready to hit the slopes? Just press a button.) Solaris is located about a five-minute walk from the Vista Bahn chair; a shuttle runs on demand, and a ski valet at the base stores all equipment.—Samantha Berman
