Expert Review

The Cliff Lodge is one of the most celebrated ski hotels in the world, and spent $5.6 million last year improving on that reputation, adding flat screen TVs, new furnishings, tiles, and free wireless internet to its already well-appointed luxury rooms. The hotel’s concrete slab construction is tempered by a subtle Asian theme accentuated with a collection of Oriental carpets as well as the Aerie Lounge & Sushi Bar on the 10th floor. Perhaps most impressive is the massive 11-story glass wall that overlooks the mountain. The rooftop heated pool isn’t a bad extra either. The Cliff was engineered to survive avalanches that frequently crash down the opposite side of the valley, and it can subsist for weeks if the highway is closed – just in case you’re worried.
