Best Lodging: Western Ski Lodges

Expertise Provided By: “Sunset Magazine”

Emerald Lake Lodge

Fields, British Columbia. Stay in a two-story cabin, complete with stone fireplace and balcony, high in the Canadian Rockies on a peninsula that flows into the lake.

The Ranch at Rock Creek

Phillipsburg, Montana. Southeast of Missoula, on “one of the prettiest riverfront spreads in the state,” expect lots of pampering, including massages, exquisite foods and wines, and even sleigh rides behind a team of Percherons.

West Shore Café & Inn

Homewood, California. Six-room Lake Tahoe inn that resembles an elegant waterfront home. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the lake.

Dunton Hot Springs

Delores, Colorado. Former mining town southwest of Telluride transformed into a luxury resort. The 12 cabins appear rustic from the outside but are extremely posh.
