Girls, girls, girls! Trapper’s Cabin getaway

There’s no guarantee that this retreat will become home to the latest in the Where the Boys Aren’t series, but Trapper’s Cabin on Beaver Creek Mountain does offer the ladies a chance to disappear for a while and enjoy relative seclusion and a bit of relaxation. This four-bedroom, four-bathroom villa is 9,500 feet in the sky, surrounded by nature and designed for high-touch service.

Trapper’s Cabin is a log cabin … that happens to come with a hot tub, steam shower, pool table and professional kitchen. In-room spa services are available, as well, along with the efforts of a personal chef. Skiing, snowshoeing and hiking are not far from the front door.

So, could you imagine taking off with the ladies for a destination like this? Conceive of having your body rubbed down by a skilled spa therapist before soaking in the hot tub … while boyfriends and husbands and kids are trapped in the real world? Trapper’s Cabin starts at $599 a night, which I find shockingly low.

With all of the crazy fares to Salt Lake City that have been popping up all over the radar, I’m sure that I’m not the only person with skiing on his mind this week. The plan, as I have concocted with dear friends, is to rent one of these puppies in the Park City neighborhood next January, ski all day and then crash on the couch with a bottle of spiced rum and some oatmeal for the best sleep ever. The perfect ski weekend.

This photo of was taken by Martin O’Connell and if you’re any bit of a snowsports person, it should have you all riled up for the winter. Thanks Martin!
