Chosen by: Kristen from Brave Ski Mom

"For utmost convenience and comfort, we enjoy the Osprey at Beaver Creek, just 26 feet from the Strawberry Park Express chairlift. Ski valets store gear overnight and help guests to the lift in the morning. Staff are friendly and attentive, the rooms are massive, and the pool and hot tub soothe after an active winter's day."

Chosen by: Kristen from Brave Ski Mom

"Ski-in ski-out accommodation at Stowe is limited, with the best option being the beautiful Stowe Mountain Lodge. We love the Lodge for the spacious suites with kitchens, the creative dining, the outdoor pool/hot tub and the Solstice Spa. The Lodge's central village location places it near the ice rink, climbing wall, children's centre and ski lifts."
