Our place is in Madesimo. That's roughly on the Italy side of the pass that heads over to St Moritz on the Swiss side, about two hours from Milan. Madesimo has about 4,700 feet of vertical and something like 15 lifts, including an underground train, a cable car and a gondola. Summit is 3000 meters, which is pretty high for the Alps. Typical Alpine village, with pedestrian center. Our place is about a 5 minute walk from main lifts. Three bedrooms, one bath, wild boar head on wall. 4th floor in an 8-floor building, with elevator. Washer (no dryer), dishwasher, microwave. TV, no satellite. No phone. Queen in master bed, bunks in each of other bedrooms. Fireplace. Wood floors in main area/new wall-to-wall in bedrooms. Skis tucked away under beds, in closets, behind paintings, anywhere my wife can't find them.
I'm only just starting to toy with this idea, nothing set yet. At some point, though, it'd be fun to do a swap with someone who's got a place in the Western US or Canada.
