What if ski resorts operated more like fancy marinas in the mountains and encouraged visitors to pull up their land yachts and stay for a while before pushing off and heading to the next destination? It’s not that crazy of an idea, just pick a flat spot with in say 20 minutes of the hill and run a shuttle every 20 minutes (lots of opportunities for up charging for amenities at the resort).
If this were an option I would have to consider a prefab tiny home like The Escape One XL. This 30-foot towable RV is designed to look just like a look like a rustic cabin so wherever you dock you will feel cozy and comfortable. Its 388 square feet with 11 foot high ceilings and contains a bathroom, a kitchen, a living room and two sleeping lofts. The cheapest model runs $70,000. Looks pretty cush:
