Snow Bear Chalets

Whitefish, Montana

At these chalets, which opened last September, the ski-in, ski-out convenience is only half the draw. The rest is the whimsical design aesthetic, which owner Gail Goodwin describes as Harry Potter meets Hansel and Gretel—think wood paneling, turrets and murals of constellations on the ceiling. “I wanted people who were skiing to stop and say, ‘I need to see that,’” she says. —Samantha Cooney
