This week I’m beginning to morn the imminent end of the ski season as the next season - mud season, seek kicks up its gritty heels here in the Hudson Valley. I know, I know, life could be a lot worse. But, maybe we could eek out a bit more skiing if we lived in say,…the Alps?
After a fabulous day on the slopes with my friend Brigitte, she shared her fantasy of spending a winter at a ski resort. When I was younger, I truly harbored an unfulfilled dream of becoming a ski bum. So now I could just pack up and leave on a dime (not).
Ski bum? Maybe the cold weather has frozen my brain.
That night I could not help myself, I started pointing and clicking around the globe. Then mountainous ecopods danced across the screen and took over my consciousness.
Nestled deep in the Swiss Alps are Whitepods. Forget the sub-zero temps, these ecopod domes each have their own flickering wood fire and toasty outdoor wood-heated hot tub (as you may recall, I love those). Plus, you can sleep under organic cotton bedding after a healthy meal of locally sourced organic food. Yum. Eco-goodness in the Alps - Glamping in its highest form.
Since we are skiing dangerously out of bounds, do you know about the Gorsuch catalog? Skiers, boarders, and lovers of everything massively expensive, they are having a sale. Hide your wallet.
