Grand Hyatt Vail Opens a Swank Slopeside Yurt

Those looking for the latest and greatest when it comes to après-ski won’t be disappointed if they decide to kick up their ski boots at Grand Hyatt Vail (formerly Hotel Talisa) at day’s end, thanks to the hotel’s brand new, ski-in, ski-out yurt (open 4 to 8:30 p.m. daily). Although, the amenities at the Grand Hyatt’s pop-up lodge are a little more luxe than your standard backcountry abode. Think of it as a happy hour base camp; you can snuggle inside the yurt—which comes decked out with plush couches and a bartender—for a cocktail tasting (or sip on a cup of peppermint schnapps-spiked hot cocoa), or mingle by the fire pits just outside. There’s also skate rentals for guests to channel their inner Dorothy Hamill and hit the local ice—plus, live music, s’mores, and complimentary cookies and hot cocoa (served from 4 to 5:30 p.m. daily).

Allow us to let you in on a secret menu item: Gessner’s Grand Cocoa. It’s made with whole milk, rich bittersweet chocolate, house-made marshmallows and a chocolate snowflake tuile made of hardened chocolate. Delicious, yes, but the drink’s presentation is what really stands out. The snowflake tuile rests over the top of the glass with marshmallows at the bottom. Then, a server slowly pours the hot chocolate over the tuile until it melts.
