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.
Back in the 80s you carved Vail's seven Back Bowls like you were auditioning for a role in Ski School and drank at the Red Lion like a bonafide ski bum. You've since graduated to finance, and while you still keep it real in Blue Sky Basin backcountry, you've grown to appreciate the finer things. With money flying in from the coasts (and more recently from Latin America) Vail remains flush with the finer things, from five-star digs, to gourmet eats, and world-class culture—and just enough of a party scene for a whiff of your glory days.
