PUTTIN’ ON THE RITZ, CARLTON THAT IS, IN BEAVER CREEK
Colorado Goes Chic


Pitched to pampered powder lovers, the just-opened RITZ-CARLTON BACHELOR GULCH ups the luxury quotient of already swanky Beaver Creek. Cradled in a Colorado valley, the rustic-chic 237-room resort grandly assembles rough-hewn logs, indigenous stone, and 100 fireplaces — one of them the lobby’s three-story fieldstone chimney. Guests can hop the lift just outside and, in European village-to-village tradition, ski east to Beaver Creek Village or west to Arrowhead. But with a 21,000-square-foot spa, equipment rentals, and several eateries on site, the Ritz does everything it can to lure you back. Rooms from $475. (800) 241-3333, www.ritzcarlton.com
