Most Exclusive Ski Resorts

Skiing is undoubtedly a favourite pastime of the preppy set (note snowboarding is distinctly not preppy), however your choice of resort is also a mark of your class and social standing. Whilst many of the world's most famous resorts may be better associated with new money and celebrity status, a number of the well-known resorts are also extremely popular with the preppy and Eurotrash sets.
