The Luxury Collection’s new Hotel Talisa has us looking forward to ski season.

At the base of Vail Mountain in protected forestland Hotel Talisa – opening in October – promises four seasons of luxury for the Outdoor traveler.

As we wind down the summer and look forward to our ski adventures, the hotel will be the first of its kind in Vail with a ski-in/ski-out experience. Designed to take advantage of its prime skiing location, the property will feature its own dedicated chairlift up the mountain as well as on-site ski rentals and ticket office.

The price tag is not for the faint of heart, but imagine staying as a guest at the first U.S. ski property to join the Luxury Collection’s portfolio of exclusive hotels and resorts. Here you can slow down and appreciate the many moods of winter against a backdrop of woods and mountains and enjoy the quietude after a long day on the mountain.

Oh, rejoice the season. Meet you there!
