What is "winter resort casual wear"?

What is "winter resort casual wear"? I have been awarded a trip (by my company) to Aspen CO in Februrary at the St. Regis. I'm told the attire is winter resort casual, but I don't know what this means. I'm not a skier, but I am a Googler, and all I find is resort casual, which seems to indicate warmer climate destinations, or mountain casual. Nothing for winter resort casual. Help me (and my wife) understand what not to wear.

Around the Disney World in Less than a Month

Last-minute vacation madness: my sister in DC just asked me to plan a vacation to Disney World for my 6-year-old niece during this year's winter holidays. She'd like 3-5 days, either before or after Christmas. Today is already December 8. Is this perfectly doable, or difficult/expensive but worth it, or not recommended? If we go ahead at this late date, what can we do to get the most out of the trip? [more inside]

Driving around Detroit, MI

I have business in the Bloomfield Hills suburb of Detroit in a couple of weeks. Google Maps gives me two routes from the airport car rental to my destination with roughly the same travel time and a third that appears slightly longer. Which is best in terms of ease of navigation for a solo driving Detroit area newb, safe road conditions (especially if it snows), and likelihood that the travel time is accurate (i.e. not prone to massive unexpected delays)?

Save me from Spider plants.

Re-starting my indoor garden: What should I do? I've had a sucessful window-herb-plant garden going for years but then everything just died at once. I want to start fresh, from seed ideally, and as soon as possible. What plants (herb or house) grow in winter (Heated but not that heated apartment) with semi-eastern exposure that don't die if I look at them funny?

Buying Boots and a parka in Northern Alberta (Canada.) Where to look?

Buying Boots and a parka in Northern Alberta (Canada.) Where to look? The post title says it all. I'm buying boots and a parka in Northern Alberta (Canada.) I'm only a couple hours north of Edmonton and can go there if necessary, but ordering online is also something I'd consider. I plan to be spending a decent amount of time outside and want to get gear that will keep me warm, and last for years to come. What are the quality names? Where is a good place to look?

How do you stay fashionably warm in winter?

I started dressing more fashionably in the last year; ditching my Kohls and Sears wardrobe for Banana Republic, J Crew, and Ann Taylor. Overall I'm pleased with my new wardrobe, but I have not figured out what to do for winter! I live in New England where it gets COLD and those thin little "sweaters" that BR and J Crew like so much don't cut it. Last winter I looked great but was frequently cold. Should I just go to LL Bean, or is there some winter fashion secret?

Recommend Cold, Awesome Places for a Vacation

I'm going to be starting a little sabbatical from work around Thanksgiving time, and we want to take a vacation trip to kick it off. It'll be approaching winter, and I've always been fascinated by the idea of cold northern oceanfront places with fantastic storms and windswept beaches. Something like the setting of The Ghost Writer, beautiful and austere landscape, cozy house right on the water. Can anyone recommend a town or place to look, maybe pacific northwest or new england? My experience with VRBO-style rentals in California has been good, and dog-friendly would be a big plus.
