Four Seasons Resort Vail, for group adventures
Pretty as a chocolate box, this hotel offers cozy rooms with balcony views over the snowy surroundings. If you catch a chill, the suites have living rooms with gas fireplaces to snuggle up by. Bigger groups can opt for one of the super-luxe residences, which sleep up to 12. To organize some holiday-changing extras, speak to the concierge about guided snow-shoe hikes through the forest, dog-sledding adventures, or trips to the local golf course, which transforms into a Nordic ski course in winter. After all that, you can recharge in the spa, take a dip in the outdoor heated pool or have a warming whiskey at Remedy bar.
