In case you needed another reason to head to Park City to get some skiing in before the winter is through, Park City’s very own Stein Eriksen Lodge Deer Valley was just named one of the 3 most luxurious ski resorts in North America by Forbes Travel Guide. Those familiar with the lodge’s award history won’t be surprised, however—Forbes reports that Stein Eriksen was also awarded the title of World’s Best Ski Hotel this winter at the 2014 World Ski Awards held in Austria.
Here are a few features at Stein Eriksen Lodge Deer Valley that have worked to place it far beyond its competitors in terms of luxury.
Heated sidewalks and walkways help keep guests warm and toasty after a long day on the slopes.
Guests can enjoy light fare at the Troll Hallen lodge, or they can venture over to the 4-star Glitretind Restaurant for a high-end dining experience. The Stein Eriksen Lodge also offers a 24-hour in-room dining service, housemade chocolates, and a 10,000-bottle on-site wine cellar.
An On-Site Spa
Also with a 5-star rating, guests can treat themselves to full-body massages, body wraps, nail treatments, hair styling, and more. There are also saunas and steam rooms nearby for an extra element of relaxation.
Prime Real Estate
The hotel’s unique mid-mountain location at Deer Valley Ski Resort, paired with full-service ski locker rooms, makes for the ultimate ski-in, ski-out experience during your stay—not to mention it offers breathtaking views of snowy landscapes all around.
A Scandinavian Vibe
The hotel itself is named after Norwegian alpine ski racer Stein Eriksen, who won the gold metal in the giant slalom at the 1952 Winter Olympics held in Oslo, Norway. Other echoes of Scandinavian influence at the resort include the so-named Troll Hallen lodge and Viking Lift for skiers, and elements of Norway’s traditional decoration style.
A 5-Star Rating
It’s the only 5-star rated resort in Park City, in fact. But with its high-end amenities and over 145 hearths throughout the resort, this should come as no surprise.
