Starbucks Opens First Ski-Thru Coffee Shop

Starbucks has conquered new territory in its quest to make caffeine available in every corner of the world.

The mountaintop Starbucks allows skiers to grab a latte without removing skis, at an altitude of almost 8,000 feet, as they traverse the area made famous by hosting the 1960 Winter Olympics.
