It’s not just the historic yellow Hotel Portillo that makes the ski resort unique, although this is the centre of the culture of this boutique ski resort.

The spectacular setting of Portillo is also a major draw card.

Cliff Lodge & Spa, Snowbird, Alta Ski Area, Utah, US - The World's Best Mountain Swimming Pools

Scope lines in your bathing suit at the Cliff Lodge & Spa at Snowbird. Utah is known for light, fluffy powder. Even here, Snowbird stands out, with an average of 500 inches of annual snowfall. Snowbird's flagship resort, the Cliff, is a steel-and-concrete bunker of a resort, built to withstand avalanches. Still, it seems every space has a huge window with a snow-draped view. Everything you need - when you're not actually skiing - is within one building. So you can ditch the snow pants, heavy jacket and gloves and head to the restaurants, shopping and the spa.
