5 ways to cure your snow hangover

We’re not even into the official first day of summer, yet, and already we’re dreaming of our next ski fix.

If the constant ringing and dinging of our guest services’ inbox is any indication, you must be dreaming of next year’s ski vacation, as well.

We call this a summer snow hangover.

It’s the cautionary aftermath of an extraordinary ski season. A summer snow hangover can be characterized by an aversion to lawn mowers, a fear of heat and humidity by 7 am, a dislike of scorching hot pavement, scars from the latest bug battle and a craving for the snow-filled thrills that a day on the golf course just can’t ever seem to match.

If you’ve been pining for our Instagram BBQ cam to showcase its latest bounty of snow as summertime awaits, you need to seek immediate attention as you could be diagnosed with a snow hangover, too.

The remedy? A heavy dose of snow-filled adventures to look forward to.

Moving Mountains to the rescue!

Here at Moving Mountains, we understand that the hardest part about planning a ski vacation isn’t finding two kids’ gloves that match (nevermind, that actually can be quite hard), the second hardest part is finding the perfect ski home for your vacation.

As a family, you’re juggling the school schedule, the airline schedule, the work schedule, the dog sitter schedule and, when you finally have a chance to make a reservation, you realize that every house you’ve put in your favorites file is spoken for. It’s a rookie mistake.

But here’s a pro tip to make it much easier, reserve your vacation now while dates are flexible, top choices are still available, and you aren’t spending all your free time on the internet searching for school supplies.

Word is out on how wonderful last ski season was, and it’ll be slim pickings soon enough. So scoop up one of these 5 luxury ski vacation homes before your neighbor realizes she has a snow hangover, too.
