THE BEST OF THE BEST SKI SOAKS:
Hakuginso Onsen, Japan
Located at the base of Mount Tokachi on the powder island of Hokkaido, Hakuginso offers amazing touring and skiing directly outside dorm-style lodging and the onsen of your Japanese dreams.
At this Little Area That Rocks outside the Engadine Valley, a wood-fired hot tub sits at the top of a tram at 9,800 feet. Soak in between pow laps while taking in views of the Piz Bernina.
The Cliff Lodge, Snowbird, Utah
The best part of Snowbird is the skiing. The second best part is the hot tub and pool on the roof of that big concrete hotel.
Warm Springs, Ketchum, Idaho
Rip a few groomers on Upper College, grab a pint at Apple’s Bar and Grill, and head west into the mountains. Bring beers for the nice neighbors and Sun Valley locals.
Norris Hot Springs, Montana
With wooden decks, PBR tall boys, and live music, Norris is just far enough outside of Bozeman to make you feel like you’re back in the real Montana.
