This winter brought huge disappointment for Buffalo’s winter folk– sledding, skiing, snowboarding, and snowman-making were a rarity in the region.  In anticipation for a much better winter next year, here is a link to the nation’s top ten ski homes.  The homes are stunning and rustic, perfectly warm for freezing winter days.  They feature all of the traditional amenities of ski lodges, with a few twists– virtual golf rooms, huge home theaters, locker rooms, and indoor pools.  Of course, nothing can beat the view– most of these homes are situated atop mountains with sweeping views of the valleys below.  If you have a few millions laying around, perhaps you can treat yourself to a winter paradise.
