Why ski at one top Colorado resort when you can hit the slopes at—and enjoy the amenities of—two? The Sonnenalp in Vail (20 Vail Rd.; 970-476-5656; sonnenalp.com) and the Hotel Madeline Telluride (568 Mountain Village Blvd.; 970-369-0880; hotelmadelinetelluride.com) have teamed up to create an unforgettable experience called the Ski Dream package (February 18 to 23). Featuring three nights in Vail and three nights in Telluride, the package offers a unique way to spend nearly a week immersed in pristine winter environs.
A private, chartered jet takes care of airport transfer from Denver. Once settled in at the hotels, let the skiing begin. Along with top-notch runs—ten inches of snow fell this past week, with more in the forecast—Sonnenalp will host a dog-sledding experience for two and Hotel Madeline will stage heli-skiing (best for intermediate to advanced skiers). The combination is a treat, proving that winter, in all its glory, can be unequivocally grand. February 18 to 23; $23,500; 800-654-8312; firstname.lastname@example.org.
