Picture yourself cozy up to the fire after a fun day on the slopes. We agree, there are some ski resorts that don’t scream relaxation. Crowds, lines, shared accommodation and a number of other factors that don’t instill extreme relaxation.
Don’t worry, we have put together a list of the most relaxing ski resorts around the world. These resorts feature epic slopes, picturesque views, luxury spas and the ability to melt you heart, and your worries away. Here are the best ski resorts for extreme relaxation.
Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, St. Moritz, Switzerland
The Swiss Alps, say no more. The luxury that Badrutt’s Palace Hotel offers is on another level and comes a welcomed surprise compared to some US resorts. The resort has been described as elite due to the gourmet dining, the famous Palace Spa and its secluded location. Hidden among the Swiss Alps, skiers will find some of the best runs in the world.
Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada
Surrounded by the always beautiful Banff National Park, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise entices people just with its name. The perfect spot for the adventure seeking skier who also appreciates a touch of luxury in life. Lake Louise is special, one minute you are doing and exciting heli-tour, the next a romantic horse-drawn carriage. Of course, a luxe spa is waiting for you when you get home.
If you have brought the kids along, drop them off at one of the kid’s camps and head to the relaxing wellness centers where you can get in a little recovery before you get back out on the slopes.
The St. Regis, Aspen, Colorado
St. Regis is the only US ski resort on this list. The Aspen resort offers work class skiing on each of the three mountains located close by. Aside from great runs and snow, the St, Regis provides guests with a place to getaway. The rejuvenating Remède Spa is a must, perfect recovery after a day on the slopes. Also, this is where you will find the best dining in Aspen. St. Regis is the perfect spot for the skier who loves a relaxing glass of champagne at the end of the day.
Cristallo Hotel Spa & Golf, Cortina d’Ampezzo Belluno, Italy
Teetering on the Austrian border, the Cristallo Hotel’s stunning Dolomites location draws people in from around the world. A luxurious retreat that forces you to indulge in the best of everything. Arguably one of the most beautiful locations in the world, this hotel dates back to 1901 and today offers some of the more glamourous accommodation on this list. You won’t be able to take your eyes of the gorgeous view of the snow-covered mountains.
Gstaad Palace, Gstaad, Switzerland
Described as straight out of a fairytale, Gstaad Palace is just that, a palace. Located in Switzerland, this is one of the top ski resorts in the country and the second on this list. 155 miles of unreel skiing, the prefect excuse to wind down, relax and pamper yourself at the end of the day. The hotel spa is the place for you to unwind, the famous Hammam experience offers two hours of ultimate relaxation.
What is more relaxing than a peaceful, snow covered mountain? Not much, but these ski resorts make a perfect place to getaway.
