What a $10 Million Ski Chalet Looks Like at Three Major Global Resorts
Alpine architecture varies all over the world, but when it comes to fancy resorts, most ski chalets have one thing in common: price tag. Here's what $10 million gets you in Megève, France, Telluride, Colo., and St. Moritz, Switzerland.
Telluride, Colo., U.S., $10.25 million
Size: 11,729 square feet
Land: 35.1 acres
Bathrooms: 5 full, 1 half
More a compound than a house, the property is set within the Gray Head Wilderness Preserve, an 885-acre development comprising 35-acre parcels. Built in 2003, the house is packed with amenities, including an observatory, gym, and game room, along with an outdoor entertainment area replete with ponds, waterfalls, fire pit, and multi-tiered terraces. The house is about 30 minutes from downtown Telluride and is about a 20-minute drive from Telluride Regional Airport.

Land: .74 acres
Set in the French Alps in the village of Choseaux, a small town about an hour’s drive from Geneva, this chalet was built in 1980 and has been recently renovated. The house is spread across four floors, with giant glass windows and covered terraces overlooking the valley. The house has a master suite, three guest bedrooms with en-suite baths, and a bedroom for staff. There’s a two car-garage, wine cellar, and hot tub. The house is positioned alongside the Megève ski mountain and lies about a half-hour's drive from Chamonix and Mont Blanc.

St. Moritz, Switzerland, $10.5 million
Size: 5,920 square feet
Land: .108 acres
This 300 year-old house, designed in the traditional style of the Engadine region in the Swiss Alps, has just undergone a three-year-long renovation and is now equipped with a Balthaupt kitchen full of Gaggenau and Siemens appliances. (The house is being sold fully furnished.) There’s also a sauna, steam room, wine cellar, a four-car garage—with two additional parking spaces in front of the house—and even a dedicated room for ski equipment. By car, it’s about 15 minutes from the St. Moritz ski area and about two-and-a-half hours from the Zurich airport.
