After an intense week working at your Silicon Valley startup it's finally "Tahoe Friday!" Start the weekend early and hop in an UberX with your co-founders (only about $250 from your Menlo Park HQ according to Uber's fare estimator). Throw on your best Patagonia fleece and turn this "off-site" at Squaw Valley / Alpine Meadows into your next billion-dollar idea.

First off, you can ski, like really ski. "Expert terrain" signs are an inducement rather than a warning; nothing on the mountain is off limits to you. When you aren't riding the aerial tram, you can be found in the "living room" at the Four Seasons, holding court and dreaming of retiring here.

Deer Valley, Utah

You like your ski resort exactly how you like your country club: exclusive, manicured, and where everyone on the staff knows your name. Don't give a second thought to the kids—they're off at ski school for the better part of the day, leaving you to enjoy the pristine pistes. Nightlife to you means an après, après-ski massage, dinner, and bed by 10 so you can catch the first chair in true overachieving fashion.

You work in entertainment or finance and hitched a ride on the G5 of someone whose name you can't quite recall, but you're pretty sure your parents are old chums.
