We've just finished one of the warmest Januarys in history and for those of us who like to ski, the weather conditions in the Northeast have been more conducive to tanning rather than hitting the slopes. I'm a little disappointed, I was looking forward to skiing some fresh powder this season (not New England ice) but all is not lost. I hear there's a fresh coat of snow blanketing the slopes in Verbier, the chic Alpine village in southwestern Switzerland. In the mood for a quick run? Then grab your passport and follow me to Richard Branson's super-luxury ski chalet, The Lodge. There's room for everyone in the nine bedroom chalet and a dedicated staff ready to draw you a bath, mix you a cocktail or whip up a some raclette for the group. With both indoor and outdoor hot tubs, a private pool, mini ice rink and unlimited champagne I don't know if I would ever make it to the slopes!
