Alpine modern

Featuring state-of-the-art designs and forward-thinking menus, the next generation of ski resorts offers a refreshing approach to a favorite escape.

While there's something comfortingly familiar about the ski trip aesthetic—wooden beams, mounted antlers, plaid for days—we, for one, wholeheartedly welcome an update. Happily, a new age of modern ski hotels is upon us, where minimalist lines and acres of glass have replaced the traditional lodge look, and sushi and kale salads are offered up in lieu of carb-laden fare. From picturesque Wyoming to the mountains of Austria, explore the new destinations to ski and be seen.
