My family takes a ski vacation every year.
We spend our Christmas and New Year’s holidays in a rented cabin in the mountains.
We always go back to the same spot, because the cabin is steps away from the ski slopes. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous at that time of year. There’s always several feet of snow covering everything. My family likes to get up early in the morning, bundle up in layers of warm clothes and strap on their skis. They spend the entire day riding up the lifts and skiing down the many trails cut into the mountains. They switch between downhill and cross-country skiing. While I enjoy skiing for a few hours here and there, I prefer to remain back at the cabin. Our rustic accommodations are equipped with every modern luxury. We have stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, big screen televisions, surround sound and a jacuzzi tub. There’s also an outdoor hot tub. My favorite part of our stay is the radiant heated floors. Because the heating system is installed under the floor, it takes up no space. It operates silently and yet spreads the perfect warmth evenly to every corner. The system is zoned controlled so I can customize the temperature to preference in each room. I love walking barefoot across a heated floor and enjoying the view from the windows. I enjoy curling up with a good book, watching movies or soaking in the hot tub. No matter how low the temperature drops outside, the cabin is always warm and cozy. I look forward to that vacation all year long.
