Synonymous with ski culture and Sundance festivities, Park City, Utah is the place to be this month. As if some of the best skiing in the country isn't enough, the annual Sundance Film Festival kicks off January 17 -- Park City is about to hit full capacity. And though there's no shortage of luxury villas and five-star resorts across town, some spots are just better than others. Our favorite this year -- SKI Dream Home.
This six bedroom-10 bath winter wonderland sits at 8,000 feet, featuring a winding wooden staircase at its center, with expansive vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling stonework throughout. The properly bears all of the architectural touches expected of lavish mountain-top living, including a total of 15 interior and exterior fireplaces (including a 21-foot stone fireplace in the Great Room and two outdoor fire pits). And there's more:
A no-brainer for outdoor enthusiasts, SKI addresses every slope-side amenity you could dream of: Ski-in/ski-out access via a private heated ski bridge, heated wrap-around decks, an après ski lounge with fireplace, indoor/outdoor bar, and boot dryers, not to mention the heated outdoor pool with grotto, waterfall and an oversized hot tub. And for an après-après treat, put some time in the sauna and steam ready Day Spa Suite.
For the indoors-inclined, there's a fully-equipped Fitness Room, Full Swing Golf simulator, home theater with stadium seating, two stocked wine cellars and, of course, room for entertaining guests -- come together in the "Chill Room," an after-hours mecca featuring a DJ Booth, dance floor, wet bar, plasma screen, pool table and 550 gallon freshwater trout aquarium.
