A good night’s sleep?
Our accommodation choice may lack originality but after pouring over the accommodation options in Vail, the Four Seasons was our top choice. With down pillows and duvets, mountain views, a fireplace, private outdoor terrace and a bath tub more akin to a swimming pool, this 99m₂ suite will set you back £2021 per room per night. And just in case you are wondering, that doesn’t include breakfast.

The hotel is pretty spectacular and has everything you could possibly want for your post piste retreat. The courtyard features an outdoor pool with views of the mountain, there is also an indoor pool, spa, gym, restaurants and ample fireside nooks and crannies in which you can while away a couple of hours with a glass of wine and a good book.

Time: Midnight till 9am. Spent: £1010
