Pack your bags and your coziest sweaters, because we're heading away this winter.

Whether you're an avid skier or a snow bunny, there's nothing quite as magical as a ski town during the holiday season. Festive holiday lights, rich hot chocolate and spectacular views only add to that excitement of a seasonal adventure. No matter the location, from Colorado to British Columbia to the Swiss Alps, each mountain town features its own charm.

But where you stay can make or break the experience. Ditch the hotel this vacation in favor of one of these jaw-dropping chalets, all available through TripAdvisor. Trust us, your vacation days should not be wasted on anything less.
