from $139 per room, per night
Described as a “rustic Zen Oasis,” 968 brings an entirely different experience to the table by being a truly green hotel.

The building was created from 100% natural and sustainable materials, and uses recycled-paper wall coverings and energy-saving windows. It doesn’t hurt that the hotel also has a heated pool, Jacuzzi, and spa with a sauna. Oh, and the infamous casinos of Southern Nevada are nearby, too.

MontBleu Resort Casino

Like staying in Oceans Eleven.

On the South Shore’s Nevada side, 1.5 miles from Heavenly, this hotel, with its Ocean’s Eleven vibe, reopened in 2006 after extensive renovation. Guests can stroll from the white marble lobby to the elevators without scuttling past gaming tables, and rooms glam it up with pink marble baths. Après ski, test your luck in the casino, or rest your limbs at the indoor pool or Onsen Spa, which features Aveda products and treatments. Especially laudable is the hotel staff—both warm and professional.

Black Bear Inn

So alluring it appeared in TV’s The Bachelor.

Rustic elegance sums up the B&B one mile from Heavenly’s California base—so alluring it appeared in TV’s The Bachelor. With its 34-foot-river-rock fireplace and antler chandeliers, the inn recalls the grand lodges of the American West. There are five rooms and three cabins, all with gas fireplaces. Antiques add a historic perspective—from an 1886 piano to a chicken incubator reborn as a cocktail table. After a breakfast of salmon-and-dill omelets, you’ll be ready to shoot the chutes in Mott and Killebrew canyons.
