We’re going to let you in on a little secret. You don’t need to be next to some ski slopes in Vail to enjoy the next-to-some-ski-slopes-in-Vail lifestyle. 
  
Nope, all you need is eBay. And this guide to the sort of après-ski accoutrements—think vintage fondue sets, champagne flutes and, yes, a portable hot tub—that make that special brand of relaxation possible. 
  
And, sure, a bit of imagination doesn’t hurt.

Japanese Fondue Pot

Waterford Crystal Champagne Flutes

All these  flutes need is your favourite bubbly. Also, your favourite rustic log cabin with an unobstructed view of powdery-snow-covered mountains. If possible.

Brioni Silk Robe

Fact: this Italian-made  silk robe with seasonal dark-green trim is just as comfortable to wear after a long day of skiing as it is after a long day of... holiday shopping and watching football. Stop. Don’t act surprised.

Multifunction Foot Massager

You’ve amassed an unexpected contingent of new friends at your Swiss chalet (or apartment). Might be your cache of brandy. Or your winning smile. Or maybe word just leaked out that you’re now holding on to a foot and leg massager with acupuncture points and heat therapy. Okay, so it’s probably not because of your smile.

Genuine Sheepskin Rug

Where there’s après-ski lounging, there’s usually a roaring fire. And where there’s a roaring fire, well, there better be a pillowy-soft rug made of genuine sheepskin and white suede.

Portable Hot Tub. Uh Huh.

So what if you can’t bring the full ski experience with you wherever you go. At least you can take this portable, custom cypress-wood hot tub (it heats to a comfortable 104 degrees, if you’re curious) along on your travels. Probably have to check it, though.
