If you want to bring your ski vacation to the next level, these could be just the ticket.
Aspen, Colorado, with its four surrounding ski areas, has long been a destination for the wealthy. Though the towns of Aspen and Snowmass are popular year-round, it's during the winter months that its trendy restaurants, bars, and resorts really come to life.
If you really want to experience Aspen the way a wealthy traveler would, renting one of the area's many palatial ski homes could be the way to go.
