The Australian snow scene (yes, there really is such a thing) is getting cooler, thanks to Huski, an urbane apartment hotel in the alpine town of Falls Creek, Victoria. The faceted profile of the building, by architects Elenberg Fraser, was inspired by a snowflake, with 14 stacked apartment suites radiating from a spiral core. Snag a one-bedroom flat with a balcony whirlpool for sheer après-ski heaven, or spread out with your posse in the penthouse duplex, which sleeps 10. To fill your refrigerator, head to the ground-level produce store—stocked with every imaginable comfort food—that's also a check-in area and café. Dynamic husband-and-wife managers Zeth Romanis and Greer Nadenbousch ensure that every snow bunny has a good night's sleep—and a perfectly foamy caffè latte— before taking on the black diamonds. Huski, 3 Sitzmark, Falls Creek; 61-1300/652-260; www.huski.com.au; doubles from $221.
