In three quick hours on a train heading south in the Swiss Alps, ja becomes si. Gore-Tex turns into mountain couture. Eyeglasses change from pragmatic sight correction into just another vehicle to parade élan. Billboard ads turn from hawking shampoo and cell phones into high-end boarding schools—photos of blond girls playing cricket in starched white pants.

Rebirth for Burke, VT

In Vermont’s remote, lovely Northeast Kingdom, resort developers have big plans for a quiet little town and its long-slumbering ski area.

“This is it?” That was my first thought upon arriving at Burke as a teenager for a ski race some 25 years ago. That phrase became a refrain as I hiked the slalom course next to the small, broken-down, Poma and sought refuge from the New England cold in the bare-bones Mid-Burke Lodge. Knowing Burke Academy’s reputation for churning out Olympians, I was shocked that so humble an operation had such stature. Of course, like many youngsters, I wasn’t looking very far beyond my own ski tips.
