Owning a vacation home is a hallmark of the 1%.
While most Americans will shell out hundreds of dollars a weekend for hotel rooms or home rentals in the most popular ski towns, the richest of the rich can afford to put down roots.
Realtor.com recently published a list of the most expensive ski towns in the US and how much it would cost to buy a home there this winter season.
