Concierge.com's insider take:
Norwegian Stein Eriksen, who won a gold medal for giant slalom at the 1952 Olympics and then three gold medals at the 1954 World Championships, is director of skiing at Deer Valley Resort. So it's no surprise the hotel that borrows his name (he's the property's so-called "ambassador") is close to the slopes. The lodge is at the base of Deer Mountain's Sterling lift. But what makes it so winning is the number of comfort-driven amenities: Each of the 175 rooms has a jet tub and humidifier; suites have stone fireplaces; and the restaurant, Glitretind, is the best in town. The design is odd but fun, as if a hunter with a taste for Danish modernism had a go at decoration—the walls are stone with dark wood trimming. And what would an au courant ski lodge be without the comforts of a spa? Stein's includes an outdoor pool, fitness center, and an 80-minute ashiatsu treatment, in which the masseuse literally walks back and forth on your body.
