As enchanting as it gets for a slope-side retreat, this lodge is as perfectly groomed, timelessly gracious, and uniquely charming as its namesake founder, the winner of an Olympic Gold Medal in 1952. Massive stone fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, and natural woodwork in the main lodge combine with in-room fireplaces, imported fabrics, and heavy wood furniture to create an old-world Norwegian atmosphere. The service and facilities are impeccable, right down to the heated sidewalks and bell staff that lights your in-room fire for you. All rooms have oversize whirlpool baths, and many have deck hot tubs and in-room steam showers. A full-service, 23,000-square-foot Norwegian spa will pamper you after a hard day on the slopes. The hotel underwent a $6 million room renovation in 2014–15.
