Top Canadian Ski Resorts

January 22, 2015


As we are entering the winter season, it is time to begin planning your late winter and early spring vacations, and Canada should be at the very top of your list. Canada is home to some of the top ski resorts in North America, including Banff, Whistler, Kicking Horse, and Panorama. Whistler Blackcomb highlights the best of Canada by boasting its Olympic heritage and world-class facilities while Banff focuses more on the small-town atmosphere and natural beauty of its national parks. Kicking Horse offers guests 3 different mountain ranges to choose from: the Canadian Rockies, Selkirk, and Purcell, and Panorama Mountain Village is rich with history from its earlier days when it opened in 1962 as a local “ski hill”. Canada has so much to offer and is the perfect way to experience an “out-of-this-country” vacation.

Best Après Ski in Taos, New Mexico

January 8, 2015


Taos Ski Valley in New Mexico is an incredibly unique and diverse resort, combing classic European design and architecture with the local Native American and Spanish cultures. In congruence with hosting the top-rated ski school in North America, Taos is also home to several favorite après ski restaurants and bars. The Martini Tree Bar located upstairs from Tenderfoot Katie’s Cafeteria and is known as the HOT SPOT for après ski. The walls are adorned with Taos history and guests will enjoy great cocktails while socializing with new friends. The Bavarian Restaurant is a local and tourist favorite, as it is set in true German fashion and can be accessed straight from the ski slopes. Heat lamps on the sunny deck allow skiers to enjoy their après ski with a view, or from inside by the Bavarian tile stove. Hotel St. Bernard is the perfect spot for après ski as it is located right on the ski slopes, giving guests easy access to a warm meal anytime during the day. The Stray Dog Cantina is a wonderful place to rest your legs after a long ski day and taste its award-winning chili. No matter your personality or tastes, Taos has the perfect après ski spot that will keep you coming back year after year.

Experience Aspen, CO this Winter

December 19, 2014


Aspen is perhaps Colorado’s most famous ski resort village. It is known to attract high rollers and jetsetters from all over the world. Around town, you’re likely to spot ritzy alpine chalets, a private jet parking lot, and maybe even a pair of celebrities undercover in their ski helmets and goggles.

For those who are not in the market for luxury real estate, it’s easy to indulge in Aspen’s picture-perfect winter atmosphere and world-class Aspen/Snowmass ski resort. Set in Colorado’s wild Elk mountain range, natural beauty abounds. In fact, the nearby twin peaks known as the Maroon Bells are the most photographed mountain landscape in Colorado, making them an easily recognizable icon.
