Stein Eriksen LodgeThis chalet-style lodge takes its name from legendary Norwegian skier Stein Eriksen, the 1952 Olympic giant slalom gold medalist and 1954 World Cup champion. When he agreed to help develop this ski-in, ski-out spot in the 1980s, he drew from his experiences at the best ski hotels in Europe, lending the lodge an Alpine feel. Inside, fireplaces, stone walls, and rich wood ceilings complement the mountain surroundings. Guestrooms are equally thought out, with beamed cathedral ceilings, stone fireplaces, and leather furnishings. Select rooms have jetted tubs and heated floors.

Ski in High Style
The Stein Eriksen Lodge at Deer Valley Resort in Utah is no ordinary ski lodge. Built in 1982 and named after Norwegian Olympic Gold Medal skier Stein Eriksen, the upscale lodge brings a hefty dose of ski chic to Park City - features include a three story stone fireplace, chalet-style decor, five-star service and dining, a full-service spa, expansive views, and a ski valet (with boot-warming services!) to store your equipment. The family-friendly lodge (a 50-minute drive from Salt Lake City Airport) is situated mid-mountain at Deer Valley at an altitude of 8,100 feet. The ski-in/ski-out location allows you to step from the snug comfort of the lodge directly onto any number of chairlifts up the mountain, where green, blue and black diamond trails and ski bowls await. Deer Valley is known for the impeccable grooming of its wide trails - to ski down beautiful "corduroy" rows of snow on a bright sunny day surrounded by the Wasatch mountains frees your spirit. Rooms are expensive, but après-ski drinks are an affordable splurge. Pick a seat by the fire on the outdoor terrace, order a beer and cheese plate, and marvel at the mountain trails and blue sky in front of you. For dinner, you can eat at Deer Valley or take a 10-minute drive to Main Street in Park City (home of the Sundance Film Festival) for a wide variety of restaurants at all price points.
