“Boutique lodging and fractional residences in one”

Ski Report

Coming Soon: Sky Lodge Park City’s Old Town has been in need of an updated luxury hotel for some time. Finally Bill Shoaf, the founder of CloudNine Resorts and a long­time city resident, stepped up with a boutique lodging and fractional residences in one. Straddling three historic buildings at an old railyard, the 33-room property has a warehouse–cum–urban loft design akin to something you might find in SoHo or San Francisco. The original 110-year-old wood columns, hand-planed hickory floors, and oversize windows have been integrated into the architecture.

A glass-and-timber elevator shaft looks over the mountains as you’re whisked to your contemporary room kitted out with plasma televisions, slab granite countertops, and a Kohler tub with a cascading waterspout. Sky Lodge will also feature a spa and a trio of restaurants.

Zoom, in one of the previously existing storefronts, will keep its space and remain open; the intimate Fin will debut next door with fresh seafood. The Easy­ Street Brasserie will fo­­cus on breakfast in the third space, but the best spot may be the backyard patio that spans all three. Here guests can choose from any of the menus in addition to such bar selections as sliders. From $925; fractional memberships, from $269,000. At 660 Main St.; theskylodge.com.
