El Monte Sagrado Living Resort & Spa

Luxury and sustainability meet at this Taos, New Mexico, resort.

Just blocks from Taos Plaza, El Monte is as much about ecological preservation and sustainability as it is about luxury. The former is evident in its thorough recycling and water-purification systems, as well as in its chlorine-free indoor swimming pools and hot tubs.

The Historic Taos Inn

The Historic Taos Inn
Taos Inn
A great place to stay for a true Southwestern atmosphere.

From its signature neon thunderbird sign to the authentic Southwest style of its rooms, The Historic Taos Inn epitomizes local color. A cluster of buildings dating to the 1800s surrounds a courtyard and patio, but the 36 rooms and suites are modern and comfortable. Come après-ski, order a Cowboy Buddha margarita in the famous Adobe Bar, and stay for dinner at Doc Martin's Restaurant, which serves excellent chile rellenos and boasts an award-winning wine list. $60—$225 per night; 888-518-8267; taosinn.com

The Pitcher Inn

The Pitcher Inn
Enjoy village life at the Pitcher Inn.
An exercise in stealth pampering.

The centerpiece of sleepily idyllic Warren village - Sugarbush is two miles away - the Pitcher Inn is an exercise in stealth pampering, with a discreet spa and a superb regional restaurant. All eleven rooms are playfully themed. For an immersion in downhill nostalgia, opt for the Ski room, furnished with artifacts from the Mad River Valley. The bedspread is a patchwork of parkas, the headboard a phalanx of toboggans and a stone fireplace gives the room a warm glow. The perfect ski lodge? It just might be.

Claybrook

Claybrook
Sugarbush, VT
One not to miss, right at the base of Sugarbush.

The oversized silver silo capping the barn-red Clay Brook hotel at Sugarbush's base is hard to miss. Not that you'd want to. New this season, the Clay Brook's rooms and suites are spacious and handsomely decked out, to a taste level more Soho than ski condo. Perks include equipment valets savvy enough to suggest a tuneup, a heated outdoor pool and two hot tubs, and the Timbers restaurant, housed in a post-and-beam Vermont round barn, complete with 45-foot-high ceilings.

The Equinox

The Equinox
The Equinox Lobby
The grande dame of Stratton.

This grande dame might be getting up there in years (it opened in 1769), but recent renovations—including a great room that finally gives this historic hotel its due—keep things current. Today, skiers set up base camp here for trips to Stratton and Bromley, 17 and seven miles away, respectively. To bring modernity into the mix, designer Geoffrey Bradfield used lighting, fabric and artistic influences in guestrooms and public spaces.
