For me the best way to get over the winter blues is to escape to a tropical paradise (see incredible hotel post in Bali from yesterday here). However, this got me thinking about all those that love the snow, and all the activities and interiors that go with it. I do enjoy hitting the slopes and ski chalets are definitely a highlight of the winter experience for me. When I think of a ski chalet I think of rustic wood, animal skins and huge fireplaces. With this being said, times have changed and with more design firms trying their hand at contemporary chalets here are some incredible examples of how a winter escape can be just as stylish as city homes.
