Because every man needs a plan, and some of us need that plan with pretty pictures, we present Where to Take Her: a series that answers a gentleman's most pressing lifestyle questions and recurs whenever we get around to it.
This go-round: our picks for skiing getaways, from high-tone to rustic. Put on your goggles.
Sugar Bowl: Norden, CA. It’s an easy drive with plenty of slope options for the whole family. No brainer. But don’t be fooled by Mt. Disney. That sucker’s covered in black diamonds.
Amangani: Jackson Hole, WY. Eyeball the Grand Tetons hearthside through a wall of two-story portrait windows, grab a massage and a schvitz — and who knows, maybe do a little skiing.
Mammoth: Mammoth Lakes, CA. Come for the slopes, but Mammoth’s got a firebrand of a nightlife under the hood. Wine bars. Pubs. Nightclubs. There’s even a tiki bar. And that’s only what's official.
Alta Crystal Resort: Greenwater, WA. Hot tub. Heated pool. Log cabin. Located at the feet of Mt. Rainier and Crystal Mountain in the Snoqualmie National Forest — classic luxury with a classic feel.
