Indagare Loves

  • The marvelous efficiency of private, in-room ski rentals
  • Warming up at the hotel's raclette bar after a bracing afternoon on the slopes
  • Hopping from hot tub to warm plunge pool to cold splash pool – and back


The small and stylish Lumière, which opened in 2008 at the bottom of the Lower Boomerang ski run, has proven popular with couples and groups of friends who take advantage of the stunning penthouse ‘Wilson’ suite, which sleeps eleven. Yet all twenty-nine rooms and residences are comfortable and spacious, with sleek, modern furniture that would not be out of place in New York or London. Lovely touches like L'Occitane bath products and full kitchens in all the rooms contribute to an overall impression of quiet luxury, while oversized windows and balconies make the most of the stunning scenery (of all the hotels in Mountain Village, Lumière enjoys the highest perch).

A large log fire and rough stone walls give the fourth-floor common area a clubby feel, along with comfy sofas and a well-stocked library of DVDs and board games. Its outdoor deck is popular for cocktails and dips in the various soaking tubs. At snug hangout Little Bar, a chic crowd snacks on sushi and, in the wintertime, the hotel's signature après-ski raclette.

Another boon for serious skiers is Lumière's partnership with luxury ski concierge Black Tie, a game-changer for those who dread the ritual headache of lining up for skis, boots and poles. Not only can guests arrange to rent all equipment from the privacy of their rooms; they also wake up to warmed boots and route recommendations based on the day’s conditions.

Who Should Stay

Serious skiers and those who appreciate a sophisticated but cozy resort.
