With working from home for adults and remote learning for kids being part of the new normal in many areas, people are finding that this can be done from anywhere, including your favorite ski resort.
Renting or purchasing a house or condo at your favorite resort, or one in close proximity to several areas, can eliminate the weekly hassle as well as provide a place for remote learning and working. In addition, with various state-ordered restrictions in place this winter, a seasonal or monthly rental lets you stay put and avoid the problem of quarantining before or after your ski trip.
Of course, there are other obvious benefits. Ski gear and clothing can be left there. You can drive up on Friday evening, relax and be ready to go on Saturday morning without the stress of an early morning drive, and return to the rental after a day on the slopes for a relaxing evening. If the kids only have remote classes in the morning, there is the opportunity to hit the slopes on weekday afternoons.
One couple with a young son decided to rent this winter in an area where they are interested in potentially purchasing property. “This is a great opportunity to try it out and with us working remotely and our son learning from home. It’s the perfect time,” they said.
