In just about every ski town in the United States, Mexican immigrants cook your food, build your vacation house, and clean your hotel. But what you know about them usually ends there.
Spread out a map of Mexico, close your eyes and point to a spot in the middle.

Mountains of Real Estate

Is it time to buy that dream ski home? With the real estate market in the deep freeze, there are some deals, albeit few steals. And the Russians are coming.

Ken Libby, a realtor in Stowe, Vt., recalls the boom years early this decade, when home prices rose 25 percent annually and a house sold on the day it was listed. “Everyone from Boston to Baltimore was buying property in Vermont,” he says. “I’ve been in this business 30 years, and I’d never seen that before—and probably won’t again.” Then came 2007’s mortgage crisis. Sales plummeted.
