South Lake Tahoe, California

Staying at Heavenly can decimate your ski-trip budget before you ever buckle your boots. That’s why the opening of Basecamp nearby may be the best news South Lake has seen in a while. The rustic-hipster hotel stands out for its sassy design—lithographed antlers, lime green Adirondacks, sexy-lumberjack uniforms, and special rooms like the Great Indoors, where the bed lies in a canvas tent that looks out onto a wall-size forest photo. After the lifts close, you’ll find the outdoors-loving crowd knocking elbows over fondue pots at the lobby’s communal table.
