6 Cozy Ski Getaways on Airbnb Where Hitting the Slopes Is Totally Optional
There are many draws to a mountainside skiing getaway, obviously including practicing the aforementioned snow sport. But, don't forget beautiful snow-blanketed chalets, après-skiwear, and the opportunity to re-create *that* scene from Dumb and Dumber.
Plus, in your regular day-to-day life, it's not so easy to just go skiing whenever you want—and that reality adds a bit of magic to the whole thing (even if you'd rather stay inside, by a fire, swaddled in the coziest fabrics to make all your hygge dreams come true).
Across the country, continent, and world, endless ski towns are brimming with snow-dusted magic that'll fulfill your wanderlust. From Airbnb, these are some of the most bookable spots where you can stay.
