The article is talking about people who are looking to get away from the cold, new and reimagined hotels in New England, the Alps and beyond offer stylish accommodations near the snow. Interested in skiing? From central Oregon to Vermont, and across the Atlantic to the Alps, a cross-section of new and reimagined hotels in the United States and Europe will offer travelers a stylish base for all kinds of cold-weather adventures. And the location itself is enchanting: There are 40 sculpture-studded acres to explore by snowshoe, and the outdoor deck offers views of all four of Aspen's mountains. In Aspen, skiing may be the recreational juggernaut, but it's just one of many wintry activities. There are 80 miles of cross-country ski and snowshoe trails that connect the communities of Aspen, Snowmass, and Basalt. For an adventurous evening, book a snowcat dinner at Lynn Britt Cabin or a horse-drawn sleigh ride to Pine Creek Cookhouse. In July 2021, Nolan McHugh and Trevor Briggs, the creatives behind the homewares brand Piaule, debuted their eco-friendly “landscape hotel” set on 50 acres in upstate New York, halfway between the town of Hudson and Hunter Mountain. Two of New York`s top ski areas, Hunter Mountain and Windham, are nearby, as is the Shawangunk Ridge for ice climbing. The lively shop and restaurant-filled town of Hudson is a 20-minute drive away. Silverthorne, located 30 minutes from prime Colorado ski resorts, may not be top of mind when considering a mountain getaway.
