Luxury winter package deals to suit the snow hound and the lodge bunny

Don’t let the snowcapped peaks and crisp mountain air fool you—the Sky Lodge puts the city in Park City. At the busiest crossroads in this high-end yet down-to-earth Utah mountain town nestled in the Wasatch Mountains, the luxurious Sky Lodge ( with its one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites combines cozy, rustic ambience with chic urban amenities. It’s the best of both worlds for when the snow is falling and a log cabin just won’t do. Two new packages and one new company make it easy for Las Vegans to head for the hills this winter.

Luxury winter package deals to suit the snow hound and the lodge bunny.

If a little skiing or snowboarding is on your winter itinerary, Sky Lodge’s Double Black Diamond package puts you on track with four nights in a two-bedroom Sky Suite for four and four lift tickets to either Park City Mountain Resort or Deer Valley (skis only) through April. When not on the slopes or if—gasp!—there’s a non-skier in your party, you can soak the chill away in your private outdoor hot tub, check out the Japanese-inspired Amatsu spa, dine at any of four restaurants (including Robert Redford’s Zoom next door), or get your après-ski on at the Sky Blue rooftop bar. $700 per night based on four-person occupancy for four nights.

Have What Apolo Anton Ohno’s Having

For the truly committed, the Train Like an Olympian package takes winter sports to new heights. Check into a Sky Lodge suite, then meet with the concierge to book all kinds of outdoor adventures: learning camps in skeleton, luge, freestyle and ski jumping at the nearby Utah Olympic Park, or a three-day steep-skiing and technical terrain camp led by World Extreme Skiing Champion Brant Moles at the Canyons. Each morning, the package includes a hearty breakfast at Easy Street and one 50-minute massage in the spa during your stay. Next stop: the fireplace and a hot toddy. It’s the drink of champions, right? $486 per night based on double occupancy for four nights; all sport activities pose an additional cost.

Ski? Who me?

No matter what brings you to Park City this winter, Vegas Seven knows a guy who has the low-down on the high country. Recently launched, the exclusive, all-inclusive VIP concierge service Park City Host puts Park City at your feet, whether they’re in ski boots or just your shopping shoes. Co-founder (and former Las Vegan) Bill Shindelar has taken Las Vegas-style VIP service up the mountain with him: transportation, private chef dinners and nightclub bottle service (yes, in Utah!). Plus, groceries, liquor and even skis delivered before you arrive. Let Shindelar know you’re coming!

20 Under 20

This exercise started with a list of known quantities: kids we’ve written about in the last two years because their talents were getting attention on the national level. Most famously, there was Bryce Harper, the 19-year-old baseball phenom now in the Washington Nationals system; Dylan Kwasniewski, the 16-year-old racecar driver; and Shabazz Muhammad, the Bishop Gorman senior—our cover subject two issues ago—who is the nation’s No. 1 basketball recruit. We’ve also profiled several other phenoms, including 17-year-old boxer Berenice Hernandez and pre-teen painter Autumn de Forest. (Visit to read all about them.) A few months ago, upon taking notice of the number of homegrown prodigies, we wondered who else was out there. So we launched the “20 Under 20” campaign to find out. We sent letters out to private and public schools and asked our readership for nominations. We ended up with a healthy number of candidates (more than 40), but what impressed us most was the quality of them. Instead of the expected barrage of stage-mom drivel, the majority of submissions were well-thought-out. Even better, as you’ll see in the 20 finalists, these Las Vegas kids are more than one-dimensional talents; they’re well-rounded contributors to society. Lastly, we certainly don’t consider this a “Top 20” list by any means. Judging from the ones who didn’t make the cut, there are plenty more out there. And judging from your enthusiasm, there will be a “20 Under 20” encore, so please e-mail your future nominations to
