VIP TREATMENT AT THE AUDI FIS WORLD CUP FINALS.
THIS MARCH, the world’s fastest and finest ski racers will descend upon the famed slopes around Aspen, Colo., to compete in the Audi FIS World Cup Finals. The event will mark the first time in 20 years that the World Cup circuit championship has been held outside of Europe, and with a $1.1 million purse on the line, it’s sure to be a gripping competition. Taking spectators front and center for the event is Hotel Jerome’s Out of This World package (hoteljerome.com; priced from $55,000), a 4-night experience for two that includes VIP access to all of the downhill excitement. Guests will be escorted to the races by one of skiing’s top competitors (Hotel Jerome has established relationships with athletes including Bode Miller and Tommy Moe) and enjoy behind-the ropes entrée to events like the Aspen Mountain World Cup Concert. Off the hill, the experience includes roundtrip private jet travel and 4 nights in an executive suite.
