Keep On Huckin’

A Seven-Room Manse Outside Vail

News flash: there’s snow, real snow, in central Colorado.

To make the most of it, you need three things:

1) Some kind of high-tech hand warmer.
2) A ski jacket painted to look like the head of a falcon.
3) A seven-bedroom ski-in mansion next door to 20 miles of fresh slope.

This concerns that last one...

Welcome to Huckleberry Lodge, the missing piece in your full-scale assault on the powdered slopes of Colorado, taking reservations now.

It’s three stories of Redford-style snow palace: stone walls, exposed beams and room for you and 16 fellow mountain enthusiasts. Nearly every room has a calendar-worthy mountain view, but we’re particularly taken by the one from the heated pool out back, which looks even better with a hot toddy in hand. (Then again, what doesn’t...)

The house is ski-in, ski-out, handy when headed to the slopes next door at McCoy Park or to Mountain Musher to try the dogsled race—a six-mile mountain loop against four other teams, with just your snow skills and a trusty pack of dogs (provided) to give you the advantage.

Practicing your “Mush” couldn’t hurt.
