Use Hilton Points at Ski Friendly Hotels Around the World.
Since Hilton has properties basically everywhere, you can use your Hilton points to stay right next to some amazing ski destinations.
I haven’t always given Hilton the same amount of coverage as some of the other programs, but with the new Hilton cards like Hilton Honors Ascend Card from American Express & Hilton Honors American Express Business Card available with up to 100,000 point sign up bonuses,
So, let’s see where you can use Hilton points to stay at ski-friendly hotels around the world.
Ski Utah in Style
The most upscale of the Hilton ski properties can be found in Utah at the Waldorf Astoria Park City for 80,000 Hilton points per night. This large property is a ski-in resort via Canyons & get up the mountain you take the hotel’s Frostwood Gondola right from the property. A free hotel shuttle that will take you into Park City.
If you want a full-service ski resort, this should be a place on your list since you can use your Hilton points or a Hilton anniversary weekend award night to keep your points safely in your account.
Close to Several Colorado Mountains
I think the DoubleTree by Hilton Breckenridge may offer the best balance of price & location.
This hotel is right across from some of the Breckenridge lifts, and for a reasonable 60,000 Hilton points per night, you can book a room selling during the peak ski season for $500+ per night.
They even have standard rooms with 2 king beds, something I am not sure I have ever even seen before in a standard room
A brand new option for using Hilton points in Colorado can be found at the DoubleTree by Hilton Vail, it requires a ride on the hotel shuttle to get to the lifts & goes for a higher 80,000 Hilton points per night during the peak ski season.
Given the higher rates & award prices, it could make for a great weekend award night redemption if you want to stay at a Hilton in the Vail area.
If you want to stretch your Hilton points a little bit more, the Hampton Inn & Suites Silverthorne can be booked for just 40,000 points per night.
This hotel is located just off of I-70 & within striking distance of several popular mountains including Keystone, Breckenridge and Copper Mountain.
This hotel is right near the Summit County shuttle stop, so you could hitch a ride to the slopes & leave your car in the hotel’s parking lot.
The Hampton Inn & Suites Steamboat Springs can be booked for just 40,000 Hilton points per night and while it isn’t a fancy hotel, it gets solid online reviews.
The Hampton Inn Steamboat has its own shuttle that will take you to the mountain – the free hot breakfast that can be found at all Hampton Inn properties.
North America – Explore skiing
Hilton has thousands of hotels around the world, so your can use Hilton Honors points all over the world.
You could choose to head to Japan & stay at the Hilton Niseko Village for around 40,000 points per night where you can ski up to the hotel, your runs try out their 2 heated swimming areas.
If you want to have Swiss skiing, you can stay at the Hilton Garden Inn in Davos for 40,000 – 50,000 Hilton points per night. This hotel is within walking distance to lots of shops, restaurants & buses that will take you to nearby Swiss ski mountains that are just minutes away.
And if you have enough Hilton Honors points in your account, your potential ski destinations are only limited by your imagination since there are Hilton properties near ski mountains samll & big all over the world.
Canadian Hilton Ski Properties
Hilton’s footprint extends beyond the US, and they have several ski-friendly properties north in Canada.
One of their mountainside locations can be found in Whistler Village at the Hilton Whistler Resort and Spa. This hotel is located almost as close to the base at Whistler as the Westin Whistler & book for 80,000 Hilton points per night.
If you prefer to head east to ski, there is a Homewood Suites by Hilton Mont Tremblant that can be booked for 40,000 – 60,000 Hilton points on most nights during ski season.
Based on photos & reviews, this property looks to not be in the overall nicest condition inside, but it gets consistently good marks for its location in Mont Tremblant.
