Christiana at Vail
With its cozy, Bavarian-inspired décor, the 22-room Christiania Lodge is warm, intimate, and bursting with character. The hotel offers ski-in/ski-out access via the Vista Bahn chairlift right outside its back door, and Gondola One is just a few steps away. Guests eat breakfast for free during the warmer months, enjoy 20 percent off Gorsuch ski rentals in the winter, and have complimentary access to Vail Vitality Fitness Center all year round. On Friday and Saturday nights, head to the hotel’s bar, Sarah’s Lounge, for a special Alpine treat: a performance by yodeler and accordion player Helmut Fricker, Vail’s resident entertainer since the 1970s.
