Fresh air, fresh snow, fresh food, and mulled wine -- the latter not for the kids! What's not to love about skiing in Europe? Whether you prefer Italy or Switzerland, France or Austria, there's something for everyone in the European mountains.
You can't do much better than these gorgeous ski resorts. They embody everything a person wants out of a ski resort -- think handsome lodge decor, cozy apres-ski bars with roaring fires, sophisticated rooms, and first-rate services.
Every year I listen to my friends whine and moan about the first few ski outings. Some of them ease their pain with an elaborate routine involving copious amounts of Advil, multiple massages, and even more copious amounts of whiskey.
