Welcome to Gnarnia

Sure, millennials may have killed the doorbell by way of texting (“L8 but OMW”), but they have given us a spirit of adventure that’s changing the way we work and play. Case in point: Breckenridge Ski Resort’s new Gravity Haus hotel at the base of Peak 9 will debut a new lodging concept this December that can only be described as “experiential.” Its 60 “curated” rooms—with clever names like The Betty, The Gnarnia and The Crashpad—offer a variety of bedding configurations for every kind of unconventional relationship and, of course, pour-over “farm-to-cup” coffee. The hotel’s Dryland Fitness center incorporates group cross-fit-type activities and its high-tech recovery center boasts a hyperbaric chamber and infrared sauna. Other amenities like guided backcountry excursions, duckpin bowling, a “Supertramp” trampoline, Japanese-inspired onsen, shared workspace and the Cabin Juice restaurant (we’re not sure about the name, but hope it has nothing to do with an outhouse) all add up to a totally new—way more social—take on your typical ski hotel. Regardless of what generation you claim as your cohort, it sounds pretty fun. gravityhaus.com
