Mr. Luxury Ski
While everyone has their favorite resorts, true ski aficionados claim allegiance to one favorite destination. Here's what your choice says about you.
In the boardroom you're fond of pointing out that the journey is as important as the destination, but all that Taoist mumbo jumbo flies out the window when you finally land in Telluride. This tiny town wrapped by 14,000-foot peaks is the place to be for those who value space and seclusion over see and be seen (just ask longtime residents Ralph Lauren and Tom Cruise). But just because the relaxed vibe has you forgo your furs for Arc'teryx down, there is nothing laid back about the ski conditions: big, bold, and reserved for those willing to venture to this isolated corner of Colorado.
