The Skylodge: Park City's New Gathering Spot - Robb Report

Since opening last December, The Skylodge (888-876-2525 has

become the one thing Park City has always lacked: An elegant central gathering place

as glamorous as Park City itself. Located in the midst of the “Sundance Zone”

adjoining Park City’s silver era Victorian Main Street and one block from the main

chairlift, the Skylodge eschews the usual ski town motifs in favor of ultra-modern

loft design perfect for roomy mountain comforts, including a virtual private water

park of hot tub, bathtub, and double showers in most of its 33 sleek glass-lined

residences. The Sky Lodge is in the business of fulfilling high-altitude whims.

Do you want four kinds of fresh oysters? Perfectly baked croissant at 7,000 feet?

Apres ski ahi miniburgers? The three restaurants and onsite French bakery are

outstanding to the point of decadence.

Forget your usual lackadasical Rocky Mountain ski-bum service, the staff here

is super attentive to the unique needs of every guest--from the

ski concierge who hands you your freshly-tuned skis in the lobby every morning to

the therapists in the downstairs Zen spa who customize the herbs to mix into your ofuro

wooden baths—the perfect antidote to the slopes. ($375-$3,750)
