Beaver Creek, Avon, Colo.

Park Hyatt Beaver Creek has a plethora of après-ski dining options and programs that begin with a complimentary s'mores happy hour each day for those coming off the slopes, held around the fire pit. It also showcases the Masters of Food and Wine culinary series of events, which connects locals and visitors with the resort’s award-winning chefs and sommeliers, professional chocolatiers, craft brew masters, and local farmers and tea producers. "We believe we have a responsibility to ensure that our dishes are thoughtfully sourced and carefully served," noted Robert Purdy, the hotel's general manager. Elsewhere in town, The Metropolitan wine and tapas bar is great for an evening meal or midday coffee break. Also swing by The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch to try Anderson’s Cabin for traditional Swiss raclette, after you’ve skied from village to village, of course.
