Going back to school can be fun -- you get to meet new friends, learn about exciting subjects, and, best of all, watch Rodney Dangerfield openly bribe Kurt Vonnegut into writing his English papers. For a school experience you won't want to pass, hit up the Washington School House Hotel.
Originally constructed in 1889, this house of the once-learned and now-dead is wrapping up renovations to fancify the interior, resulting in a swanky bridge between the past and present that includes a lobby housing a 10ft antique mirror from a French opera house and a raging fireplace below a crystal-blinged antler chandelier, plus a guest-only ski lounge that's “unlike anything [you]'ve ever experienced”, which is a bold statement considering you've been to Legoland twice. Each of the 12 rooms is outfitted with “ice-white” marble bathrooms w/ heated floors, but the two showstoppers are the Lofted King Suite with a spiral, cast-iron staircase leading to a loft, and the Penthouse Suite with a private elevator entrance/ galley kitchen/ living room/ dining room/ den, and 270-degree views stretching 500mi to the High Uinta Mountains, beautiful enough to get Uinta the pants of anyone you bring back. For snowshoeing or cross-country skiing they'll hook you up with an outdoor guide, but for those about to shred, Park City's “Town Lift” is just a few steps away, and if you shame yourself too publicly there, it's about a 50min drive to Snowbird, Brighton, Alta, and Solitude, though unfortunately this one doesn't have a fortress.
And because H2O is fun in at least two forms (boo water vapor!), next to a fireplace (w/ a torch from the '02 Olympics) they've thrown in an outdoor pool, which makes sense, as ceilings are way too low for Rodney to attempt a Triple Lindy indoors.
