5 WAYS TO ENJOY THAT SKI TRIP IF YOU REALLY DON’T SKI
Fresh powder, crisp mountain air, a pocket full of lift tickets – oh, it’s going be a glorious ski weekend getaway. With just one catch: You really don’t ski. Well, just relax. Because here are some tips on how to enjoy yourself without even strapping up those boots. [[MORE]]  GO FOR A RIDE There’s no rule that says you can’t ride the ski lifts for fun. Heck, if you have those lift tickets, you might as well use them. Think of it as a round-trip sightseeing tour. And if you can, try to get stuck with that charming brunette halfway up … for conversational purposes, of course.  ‘MALLOW OUT We’re talkin’ cocoa. Hot cocoa. The drink of the gods. It will keep you warm and your blood sugar levels just where they need to be. And if you still need a kick, don’t be afraid to “spice” it up a little at the bar. It’s cool, Larry the bartender won’t tell a soul.  MELT THE ICE Try ice sculpture. Or even snow forts. Snowmen? They work, too. But making things out of ice/snow will get some fresh air in your lungs, and make you look like a real sweetie. Ask a passerby to borrow their beret for the snowman’s hat, and you’re in.  BE THE LIFE OF THE LODGE The slopes may have the adventure, but the lodge is where the action happens. There are usually activities available, and we suggest signing up for all of them. Karaoke? Check. Team trivia? On it. Basket weaving? Why not. You’ll make more friends than you can shake a craft kit popsicle stick at.  ACTUALLY LEARN TO SKI Yes, it might be a little humiliating to start on the bunny hill, but there’s no time like the present to start. Don’t worry about those hot-shots wooshing off to the Black Diamonds – just keep practicing your snow plow stops and stay on your feet. There’s an après-ski waiting, and plenty of friends from that basket weaving class who’ll want to hear all about it. High-res

PLEASE STAYCATE THE PREMISES: TIPS FOR A STYLISH STAYCATION
Yes, many of your friends are jetting off to Caribbean cruises, downhill adventures, and an assortment of other more temperate climes. But does that give you license to just hang around and pout? Well, maybe, but who says you can’t do it in style? It’s time to celebrate the grand tradition of the all-American staycation, and no matter your reason for holing up this winter instead of hitting the road, there are a number of ways to make it a staycation to remember:  [[MORE]]CANCELED FLIGHTFEST Just because the airport closed and your flight was canceled due to whatever the heck a “polar vortex” is, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a jet-setting good time. Slip into your finest Italian wool Foundation Suit, put on an Americano dress shirt, and you’re ready for takeoff. Now, just recline your seat back, crack open a few tiny bottles of your adult beverage of choice, and buddy, you’re flying.  BLOWN BONUS BEACH BASH So what if you blew your entire holiday bonus on that Jacuzzi? Your girlfriend may never forgive you, but a whole lot of other people will. Pump up the heat on your thermostat, get some daiquiris in the blender, and throw on a lightweight cotton Northfork sweater with a pair of South Beach White Travel Jeans, and you’re dressed for the tropics. Ding-dong … is that the doorbell we hear?  LODGER DODGER Fine. We get it. You backed out of that ski trip when you found out that Hillary and all her annoying work friends were coming. And we don’t blame you. But that man-cave basement of yours has just enough exposed wood and taxidermy to get your lodge on without them. We suggest tossing a few Duraflames® on the fire and bundling up in a Bonobos sweater with some Premium Denim. Wait, look out … Man-valanche! High-res
