While the cast of Apres Ski may be hard at work dealing with drama on the slopes in Whistler, we’re on the lookout for stress-free luxury this winter. Think: dreamy, snow-capped mountains and cozy, fluffy pillows. Oh and yes, we’ll have that mulled wine after our hard-earned days at the spa, too! Here are six spectacular amenity-filled ski resorts around the world, worthy of wanderlust this winter.
1. Tshuggen Resorts, Switzerland
In addition to the awe-inspiring, futuristic designs at the Tschuggen Grand Hotel in Arosa, the resort offers paragliding, hot air balloon rides and guaranteed snow at this wellness resort. The other-wordly spa has a rock grotto, and a mountain sauna with snow terrace.
2. Stein Erickson, Utah
Park City-bound celebrities head to Deer Valley’s Stein Eriksen Lodge. Named after a Norwegian skier, the newly renovated lodge has chic antlers above the fireplace, and a palette of earthy tones. Unwind with a gold and diamond-infused facial treatment at the spa.
3. Kempinski Hotel Mall, UAE
Despite its desert location, Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates beckons skiers... with an indoor ski dome. Plus, label lovers can step right into a massive shopping mall. On offer are an ayurveda program and an infinity-edge pool.
4. The Hermitage Club, Vermont
Based in Deerfield Valley, The Hermitage Club is the only private ski resort on the east coast. The new Barnstormer chairlift — the first Doppelmayr, heated, six-person, bubble lift in the country — takes you to the top. Membership, as you might imagine, is limited.
5. The Ritz-Carlton, California
Take your pick — ice bar or snow beach! In Lake Tahoe, the Ritz Carlton houses a select number of suites and a farm-to-table restaurant. A heated pool sends steam soaring over snowcapped trees. Indulge in a chef’s table or book high-end ski demos, or even reserve a wagon to transport the kiddies.
6. Puma Lodge, Chile
The Puma Lodge will keep you feeling high and fly with heliboarding and stargazing possibilities. Three steam baths nestle you amid the natural beauty of Cachpoal Valley. Don’t forget to try the Chilean wines in the property’s cellar. Extra bonus — it’s an eco-friendly hotel.
