1. The Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch
This four-star ski-in ski-out lodge is synonymous with luxury, from high-thread-count sheets to breathtaking views. If you're there for the slops, the plentiful snowfall and incredible terrain make it a no-brainer destination. But even if you're not, you can still enjoy s’mores and live music by the fire pit or play board games by a roaring fire while snuggling with Scout, the hotel’s Bernese Mountain Dog. The seven bachelor miners that settled here would be surprised at the rustic elegance of the spa, fine dining options, and cigar bar, but if you want an unforgettable getaway no matter the season, this is the place. Nearby Beano’s Cabin is a fine dining spot, and beguilingly accessible only by horse-drawn carriage.
