With more people working remotely from home there’s no reason “home” can’t be a ski resort in North America thanks to the rise of co-working spaces and hot desks in mountain towns. Have skis/snowboard and laptop, will travel.
Fancy a month in Revelstoke? No problem, hit up the local Mountain Colab. Want an Aspen address? The Aspen Office delivers. Need some internet, conference space, phone lines in Colorado? We’ve got you covered. Prefer to take a conference call on a chairlift or a power lap instead of a lunch break? Of course you do.
Whether you call one of these resorts “home” for the season or are just passing through, these hot desk options let you seamlessly blend work with pleasure for the ultimate “work-from-home” set-up dreams any skier or boarder would dream of.
