Skiing in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Ski weekends aren’t easy anymore. Once they were simple escapes to the snow where you could shell out a little money for a lift ticket, sleep on floors, and eat Power Bars on the chairlift. But as we get older, they become full-on mini vacations. A ski destination now has to have good places to eat. And breweries. And maybe even a spa for a post-ski massage. Those places exist, but they’re also full of vacation-like prices, with $130-a-day lift tickets that earn you the right to wait in 10-15...

All summer long, Refinery29 will be examining cults from every angle: pop culture, fashion, food, beauty, and their controversial origins.

The 2018 margarita of the year is . . .

Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner, and this has us thinking about one of our all-time favorite beverages, the venerable margarita. The core of the margarita that Jimmy Buffet memorialized in 1977 is based on a combination of tequila, lime, and orange liqueur. But evolution has been kind to the margarita, and since that time the drink has benefited tremendously from the advent of premium tequilas and craft liqueurs, as well as the tireless creativity of mixologists around the gl...
