Many celebrities have a list of favorite destinations where they may escape with friends or family from the rigors of work or away from admiring fans and the paparazzi. These locations are found in many parts of the world including the United States.
When desiring winter time recreation, the affluent and well-known often make the journey to the foot of Ajax Mountain to the Little Nell resort. Here apres-ski festivities often resemble a red carpet event with the number of Hollywood entertainers that frequent the facility. Snacks before a specially prepared chef meal might include cheese fondue, truffle fries and champagne. The venue welcomes families with children and even makes special allowances for pets that include a jet lag kit that assists four-legged family members in overcoming the elevation differential. Private transportation services are also readily available. The list of regularly returning celebrities include Antonio Banderas, Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell and Heidi Klum.
