Ski House on "Mountains of Love" in Vermont

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, as I sit here in NJ, having many friends and neighbors suffering loss of one kind or another, and absorbing the fact that much of my beloved Jersey shore has been washed away by the storm, I find it so heartwarming that the Vermont Ski Areas Association has stepped up to help.  They are calling their effort Operation Mountains of Love which will kick off at the Boston Ski & Snowboard Show tomorrow, and will offer numerous generous incentives to encourage donations to help victims of Hurricane Sandy in the NJ/NY/CT area.  We can feel the mountains of love already.

One of those Vermont Ski Areas, Okemo, (which incidentally opens for the season tomorrow!) has already donated $10,000 to Hurricane Sandy recovery, and they are challenging their community of skiers to join them.  One of their specific incentives is to offer a free lift ticket to skiers/riders who donate during Thanksgiving weekend, and they are also offering discounted lodging during the next two weeks to anyone affected by the storm.  Pretty generous, and NJ feels the Okemo mountain of love, too.  Because of this, my pick for the Ski House of the Day, is one that sits on that mountain of love....slopeside on Okemo.  It's the Bixby House, a beautiful new two bedroom home right on the slopes at Okemo's Jackson Gore.

This ski house is a modern, two-bedroom home , well-situated on the mountain, and in a community with an abundance of amenities.

After having had no power at my own house for the entire week following Hurricane Sandy, the first thing I notice about this lovely, comfortable home is...all the lights that are on(!)...

...and, the first thing I will notice the next time I'm skiing at Okemo is...the mountain of love I'll be skiing on:
