If you love to spend winters swishing down mountains and springs rambling through the wild meadows of Vermont then the mention of ski resorts will cause a slight flutter in your soul. The romantic notions of a weekend away skiing can often be disrupted with long hours standing in lift pass lines, cramped quarters, bustling canteens serving uninspired fare and crowded slopes. Yet there is a little oasis of pure white powdered slopes, sheer peace and calm tranquility waiting to welcome you to a small nook of Haystack Mountain.

Those who want to share in owning a private mountain for year round jaunts, whether seeking seasonal bliss with the family in the luxury of your own Chamonix townhouse with festive cheer, or looking for weekend getaways teeing off on the rich green, walking in the dappled sunlight of the woods or splashing in the mirrored lake – can opt for luxury real estate.

Stay in a Picture Book Fable
