Welcome to Ski House of the Day!
I am a skier...so I see ski houses through the lens of a skier's goggles. Some ski houses are in that perfect trail-side location, while others are so remote they require a long snow-trek to get there; some might have a special ski room for storage or repairs, many have a cozy fireplace with crackling logs to warm frost-bitten toes; some have quaint vintage ski-decor or a modern dream kitchen for apres-ski meal prep, while others might simply be a one-room shelter from the punishing weather in the remote back-country; some have an elegant wine-cellar for apres-ski, and some have that oh-so-perfect hot tub out in the snow. The ski houses I write about are as diverse as the ski trails themselves, some spectacular, some unusual, some just a welcoming shelter from the elements, and some with a unique story to tell. But all are chosen because they offer something special for a skier -- whether it be their location to envy, their features to admire, or their story to contemplate.
As for me....I've been skiing since college (longer ago than I'll admit), in places like Killington, Mt. Snow, Snowshoe, Tremblant, Big Sky, Aspen, Steamboat, Alta, Owl's Head....and more. I'm a New Jersey native, and part of a skiing family with two grown sons (both expert skiers who continue to teach me about skiing, and so much more). I've owned a slope-side condo in Canada for the past twelve years (guess I've become part Canadian, eh?). The experiences I've had in my own "ski house" have been an enriching and rewarding part of my life.
I decided to combine my professional background in Corporate Marketing Management, Market Research, Business Writing, and Commercial Property Management with my love of skiing, my interest in real estate (especially ski homes), and my experience with my own ski house to create Ski House of the Day. It is designed to entertain, inform, and inspire!
Thanks for visiting my Ski House of the Day!
