A Glassy Ski Chalet at Squaw Valley, Born on New Year's Day

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Squaw Valley, Calif.
Price: $9,500,000
The Skinny: Completed on January 1, 2010, this glass-walled ski house lies high on the slopes of Squaw Valley and directly beneath that resort's gondola, affording easy access to the slopes, if not easy access to the house. Back when the place was listed as a rental, for $35K per week no less, the owner's permitted renters the use of a "4x4 GMC Sierra truck with studded tires and 4 chains, to ensure access to the house during big snow storms." The highest private home on the mountain at 6,427 feet above sea level, this modern ski lodge boasts incredible views of Olympic Valley and a price tag to match: $9.5M. The steel trusses support some super-high ceilings and an abundance of amenities—like a planted roof deck and a "ski room" with a fireplace and comfy rubber floors—but it's unclear from the listing how many bedrooms are included in the pricey vacation getaway.
