It’s hard to imagine that while we’re having virtually non-stop sun that the rest of the country still has snow, but there’s still time to book a flight. Skiing has positive effects on the heart and circulation as well as the peripheral muscles, especially the legs. In addition to the health benefits and enjoyment of the great outdoors, skiing is about seeing and being seen. Uber-luxury Italian ski manufacturer Foil Skis has crafted a limited-edition signature ski, the Oro Amaranto, specifically designed for Jackie Chan that will look equally good attached to your ski boots. These $42,000 skis feature a top sheet made of rare Purple Heart wood, an exotic material that’s extremely dense and stiff, making it perfect for the flex of a ski. The custom 14 karat gold plated bindings have been called the “Swiss watch of bindings.” And then, of course, there’s the biggest “must-have-these” factor — they are literally plated in gold; FoilSkis.com.
