Elevate your ski vacation this season
Some 6,000 years ago, humans strapped wood to their feet to glide across the icy tundra in the very first act of skiing.
Those early shredders likely weren’t concerned with their carving technique and didn’t think twice about pizza versus french fries. Instead, it was all about survival. These primitive planks allowed them to travel long distances safely in winter and track their prey as it migrated during the season. Humans would continue to take to the snow this way for thousands of years, until skiing was no longer a necessary task. But, by that point, the sport had been hardwired into our brains as necessary for something else: fun.
There are now thousands of ski resorts dotting the globe, all promising to deliver the thrill that humans have enjoyed for millennia. However, there are far fewer promising an unparalleled luxury experience as well. So this winter, rather than hunting down your dinner, why not head out on a quest to find both excitement and the best in luxury? Here are a few luxury ski experiences that would make our prehistoric, powder-loving ancestors proud.
