Best Ski Vacations from New York
On the whole, New Yorkers are surprisingly good skiers. And not just because, as the networks always show during the city's blizzards, people cross-country ski in Central Park. Remember that New York is also the global capital of high finance, whose practitioners have long embraced skiing, perhaps the most upper-crust sport not played at a country club. As long as Goldman Sachs perseveres, so will Aspen, Deer Valley and St. Moritz. And so will the small hills in the Catskill Mountains and the larger ones in New York's Adirondacks.
