Stay at the Mountain Chalet and enjoy easy access to the slopes while enjoying all of the amenities you expect. Spend your days experiencing nature, and your evenings in luxury.

Although the sites of Albuquerque, NM. May not be as well-known as some cities, it offers an amazingly diverse list of exciting things to keep you occupied. From ascending the longest tram in the world at Sandia Peak to American Indian Cultural museums to tours of the diverse wineries and brewpubs in the area, Albuquerque can keep you occupied for days, if not weeks. In addition, hotel prices near these adventures are among the lowest compared to other major metropolitan cities. With many options starting at under $125, perhaps splurge on the central location of the Embassy Suites and enjoy 5* amenities at 3* prices.

St. George

St. George, UT. Is superbly located for outdoor adventure travel. Near Zion National Park and Sand Hollow and Snow Canyon State Parks, the outdoors are at your doorstep. When you are done out of doors, take in an Opera or visit Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, one of the largest no-kill animal rescues in the country. Later learn more about the 7000-10,000 year old carvings at Petroglyph Park! For a unique accommodation choice near all of these activities consider Green Gate Village Inn. This intimate hotel offers a pool and restaurant and yet more closely resembles a bed & breakfast in a private home.
