Traditional Chalet or Modern Ski Home? Choosing Which is Right for You

What a cozy picture. The right choice in your ski home is certainly partially influenced by the traditional ski chalet.

Modern Ski Home

Straight contemporary lines, modern appliances, fixtures, and windows designed to be energy-efficient, placed to enhance the mountainous views. Fireplace(s) to warm and beautify the interior, decks with a hot tub and a view to last a lifetime. Bathrooms designed as individual retreats. Bedrooms with views, fireplaces, and modern electronics.
