Although Autumn or Fall is only just here for most people, skiers in the know are already planning their trips. There’s so much more to a great skiing holiday than the time spent on the slopes. As word spreads about the best locations, our cosy boutique ski hotels may no longer be well kept secrets!
In Europe we have the chic resorts of Lech, Megève and St Moritz, the sophisticated Italian Dolomites or the charming local character of the Pyrenees. I have some great memories from my last ski trip to Kristiania Lech where you can even have a personal ‘ski butler’ who will suggest a daily itinerary and have all your equipment prepared each day. For the truly adventurous, it’s also the only resort in Austria where you can indulge your James Bond fantasies and heliski! And we have just added a new hotel in the world famous resort of Gstaad in Switzerland.
Over in the US, there’s plenty of options from the rustic charm of New England or the challenge of Jackson Hole. You’ll be looked after by some of the friendliest people and enjoy acres of terrain catering from the beginner to the advanced.
Whichever SLH ski hotel you select, you’re guaranteed a restful sanctuary where you can toast your progress whether you’ve finally made the black run or nurse your bruises if you’ve just survived a nursery slope.
And for ‘ski widows or widowers’ there’s plenty to entertain you with indulgent spas, designer shopping, gourmet restaurants and cosy bars to join the skiers for sundowners – all set against breathtaking mountain backdrops.
So to ensure you get the very best, don’t wait too long to book as word is out about our wonderful ski hotels!
