Mr. Luxury Ski
Huus Hotel, Gstaad, Switzerland
A modern new option among the gilded old-world hotels that dominate Swiss slopes, the Huus Gstaad is set on a bluff facing jagged Alpine peaks. The lobby, with its massive stone reception desk, opens to a cozy library with a fireplace, and the garden outside holds a stand-alone cheese chalet that specializes in fondue and raclette. Each of the 135 guest rooms features Alpine views through floor-to-ceiling windows and just the right amount of Swiss kitsch to remind you where you are (cuckoo clocks, mountaineering lanterns). Another pleasant departure from other Gstaad lodges: Huus welcomes kids, who get free ski passes, rentals, and lessons.
