Owning a vacation home is a hallmark of the 1%.

While most Americans will shell out hundreds of dollars a weekend for hotel rooms or home rentals in the most popular ski towns, the richest of the rich can afford to put down roots.

Realtor.com recently published a list of the most expensive ski towns in the US and how much it would cost to buy a home there this winter season.

The site started with a list of more than 300 ski resorts and then located the nearest town or city in those areas, eliminating any with less than 50 homes for sale and including only one city per state.

Below, check out 10 of the most expensive ski towns to buy a home this season, with prices ranging from $598,000 to over $2 million.
