Gone are the days when ski chalets were rustic A-frames with spartan amenities. Blurring the line between chalet and snow palace, the new eight-suite Bighorn Revelstoke(Lot 14, MacKenzie Ave.; 778-786-8258; bighornrevelstoke.com) sits in British Columbia’s Revelstoke Mountain Resort in the heart of heli-ski country. Opened in November, the chalet is one of the few with its own helipad. Even if your group ranges from double-black diamond dogs to green-run beginners, there are plenty of après—and even in lieu of—ski options. An outdoor hot tub looks over the Monashee Mountains; a triple-height living room offers panoramic views, a parlor and a pool table. The spirits bar is open, the chef is private and access to Revelstoke’s 3,121 acres is unfettered. All this for $64,500 a week (a princely sum, but for 16 guests, it works out to less than $600 a night).
