Private jets are time machines and stress reducers, but make sure you know what you are buying
The siren’s song from private jet companies is easy access to the slopes, more time enjoying the powder and less stress, and they are right. Many mountain airports require connecting flights on commercial airlines, so having a jet card for your season’s ski trips can cut travel time from five or six hours by more than half.
