Faux-alpine is convincingly done at this luxury hotel in Vail that was designed to conjure the grand ski resorts of Europe. The Arrabelle's 81-slopeside rooms all have fireplaces and soaking tubs and there's a rooftop hot tub and lap pool, too, with Rocky Mountain views. But it's the little things this resort thinks of for skiers that really resounds. For example, the free GoPro cameras offered to guests for day use for recording those fine mountain moments.
