Ski + Snowboard

The World's Best Après-Ski Scenes

Most Crackling Private Fireplace

Where: The Chalet at Twin Farms, Barnard, Vermont

What'll Snow You: The aroma from the fireplace, matched only by the perfumes from the award-winning kitchen

Cool Conditions: Oh, the varied delights at Twin Farms, the luxury resort in the Green Mountains that even has its own ski hill, complete with six runs and a 700-foot vertical drop. But the biggest treat at this 300-acre estate is a night at the Chalet, one of the inn's ten freestanding cottages. At 3,000 square feet, it's both expansive and cozy, with exposed birch rafters, interior design by Architectural Digest darling Thad Hayes, and a floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace. The staff stocks the 15-by-6-foot fireplace with aromatic dry maple and oak and will light 'er up for you if you failed to earn that particular badge in the Scouts. For those in need of more warmth, you can treat your skiing party to the entire Twin Farms property, where the fireplace-to-room ratio is better than two-to-one, for $38,000 a night.

The Cold Cash: From $2,850 per night, including meals, beverages, ski gear, and access to the private hill
