Why You Need To Ski Europe This Winter
By Everett Potter
Why on earth would anyone fly across the Atlantic in midwinter to ski in Europe when the Rockies await, closer than the Alps and covered with snow?

The refined food, local wine, regional architecture and centuries old cultures tip the balance.
