A Skiers Castle

The Ski House of the Day is this castle-like Teton Village mansion on the slopes of Jackson Hole:

This magnificent ski house is a 5 bedroom, 5+ bathroom, 6,800+ sq. ft. stone and timber masterpiece with dramatic views of the slopes.  (By the way, it's on the market for $12.7 million).  Because of its imposing stone work, high ceilings, arches, and turret-like structures, it reminds me of a more comfortable version of the castles in Europe.

But...those castles don't have direct access to skiing as good as this:

Even the chandeliers inside remind me of something from a castle... does the arch, and the stone fireplace in the kitchen...

I love the windows in this beautiful ski house.  Only such tall floor-to-ceiling windows allow for views of the summit as well as the nearby ski trail while comfortably seated by the fire.  Perfect!

What a gorgeous bedroom (I'd say it's fit for royalty!):

And for those who must do a little business while in a ski's this gem for a work space?  (...wish I were writing these words from that office right now!)...

I'd feel pretty regal skiing out of here.....after all, it does look like a skiers castle, doesn't it?
