Park City

+ Great family programs. Diverse terrain.
- Confusing mountain layout.

In this age of modern resorts, luxe comforts, though welcomed by many, can kill authenticity. PCMR has managed to strike the balance between modern and homey. The historic town at the base is connected by a ski bridge to the Town Lift. Within minutes, you’re delivered to a state-of-the-art six-pack accessing 3,300 acres of high-speed groomers and aspen-dappled back bowls. In fact, PCMR has spent more than $10 million in the last two years upgrading lifts, terrain parks and snowmaking without bleaching out the local color. Ripping through ancient glades in Thaynes Canyon or dropping into powdery steeps in Jupiter Bowl, you’ll speed by vestiges of the area’s mining past. This blend of old and new has a comforting appeal. As a reader sums up, “great vibe on the mountain and a fabulous town.” —Carrie Sheinberg

Remède Spa

Remède Spa

A new player on the resort’s lodging scene, the St. Regis jibes well with its neighbors in the exclusive Deer Crest neighborhood. A funicular tram carries guests in 90 seconds from the lower Snow Park building (housing the valet, porte cochère and parking garage) to the main hotel, which is ski-in/ski-out to the Deer Hollow run. The 114 rooms and 67 suites have either private or shared balconies, gas fireplaces, deep soaking tubs and access to the St. Regis’s signature butler service. The hotel’s Remède Spa is known for its custom treatments; take a yoga class in the adjoining St. Regis Athletic Club, then soak in the heated, outdoor two-tier infinity pool and ponder when you’ll possibly find time to ski. $599–$1,725; stregis.com/deercrest

Vegas by way of New Jersey in Park City.

The interior of this restaurant is Vegas by way of New Jersey: campy, elegant and, paradoxically, casual and welcoming. Come for Italian-American comfort food: a bowl of minestrone, spaghetti with meatballs, pork osso bucco and, of course, cannolis.
