SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH
THE HOTEL MONACO (801-595-0000) just opened its Salt Lake City doors in August. Best described as the "Jetsons" meets "Alice in Wonderland," the funky Monaco's generous ski packages make it the ideal home base for exploring Utah's 14 nearby resorts. Book a suite for an extra $50, and benefit from more space, an in-room sound system and fax. Once you're hooked, check out the Monaco's other locations in Denver, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle.
FUEL UP RIGHT Next time you're at Sundance (800-892-1600), fuel up on Joe's Special, a mouth-watering mess of scrambled eggs, spinach, Italian sausage, onions and mushrooms on a biscuit at the Foundry Grill. It happens to be Bob Redford's favorite dish before he hits Mt. Timpanogos.
