While many ski towns play home to a dedicated community of lifelong mountain town dwellers, ski bums and outdoor zealots, the majority also host the über-fancy folk interested in occupying mega-mansions, dining on only the finest cuts of meat and flaunting their fur coats around town. This is no secret. However, it certainly is fun to get a glimpse into the marvelous architecture and extravagant features that some of these mountain town ski chalets have to offer. For that reason, we’ve rounded up five incredible properties for your reading pleasure.
