Ski Houses for a Wintry Escape

Escape the endless drizzle in a snowcapped ski house

There’s no one style of ski house, although they tend toward crisp chalets and sturdy log cabins. The only real requirements for a true shredder’s retreat are that it is near enough to a resort to make catching the first run of the day no big expedition and that it is equipped with a cozy fireplace for après-ski with a hot toddy (soaking tub, a plus!).
