Time to revisit these ski-town lodges, where recent renovations mean things don’t look quite like they used to.
Lodge at Breckenridge, Breckenridge, Colo. » Aiming to rise from typical mountain lodge to bou- tique hotel, the 35-year-old Lodge at Breckenridge reopened in December following $3.7 million in renovations. Enhancements include beetle-kill pine decor in each of the 45 rooms and the addition of Traverse Restaurant & Bar.
Get off the groomers and discover this luxury resort’s untapped expert terrain. The best part: You’ll have earned that cookie at the end of the day.
Credit must be given to whoever arranged for access to the Stone Creek Chutes off of a trail called Cinch. Very funny, we like your sense of humor. The chutes, of course, by their very nature as chutes, are no cinch. But glide past the rustic wooden plaques identifying the extreme terrain beyond, and it’s a little like the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland.
