Ski-in Comfort in Deer Valley
Everything about the St. Regis Deer Valley feels over-the-top. Guests ride a funicular to the lobby, and the spacious “ski beach” has chaise lounges, an infinity pool, and fire pits, all overlooking the slopes. The hotel can arrange wine tastings in the 7,500-bottle wine vault. From $849. (435) 940-5700. This appeared in the November/December 2012 issue.

Ride the Funicular to the Bar at St. Regis
When the St. Regis Deer Valley came to town and built this funicular as the main access to the hotel from Deer Valley Resort, many locals thought it was over the top, but this curiosity has become quite the fun little activity for guests. Take the quick ride (on leather seats) up to the luxurious hotel, have a look around the communal dining room, wine vault, lovely lobby, outside fire garden, and then have a drink at the intimate bar (the 7452 Mary is their signature cocktail) before descending on the slow-moving roller-coaster-like car. It's a great way to sample the "lifestyles of the rich and famous" without the wallet needed to go with it.
