Snow Globe Camping

Bucky domes always seem to pop up in unexpected places--Disneyworld, Montreal, southern Indiana. Whitepod, a luxury ecotourism resort newly opened in the Swiss Alps, is no exception to the trend. While boasting over four miles of ski slopes and lifts, the resort also offers a quirky take on lodging. Guests stay in any of fifteen little geodesic pods, each outfitted with a private deck, organic bedding, stove, and arching bay window. Added bonus: there’s a central lodge amid the pod camp for meals, drinks, and mingling, just in case you get tired of cozying up in your personal winter wonderland.
