World-class Ski Resorts You Shouldn’t MissDecember 20, 2011
Skiers who want the best accommodations to go with the best slopes shouldn’t miss out on the St. Regis Aspen Resort. Located amongst mountain streams, snow-capped peaks, and alpine lakes, this is one top winter wonderland. Other winter sports offered by the resort are snowboarding, ice-skating, snowmobiling, and dog sledding. Your after-skiing activities are also taken care of as the resort is within walking distance from Aspen’s shops, restaurants, and bars. The rooms are elegantly rustic. The service here exemplifies the impeccable standards of St. Regis, ensuring its inclusion in the 2011 Gold List of Conde Nast Traveler magazine.
If you prefer traipsing off to Europe for a skiing holiday, why not try out the Courchevel in France. It claims to be one of the largest ski resorts in the world. This is because it is composed of several villages, named after their individual altitudes. The highest is Courchevel 1850. Aside from skiing, you can enjoy its gourmet restaurants and trendy boutiques. There is also an Olympic-sized ice-skating rink. In the Byblos Courchevel, the ski lift and cable car leave directly from the hotel lobby. With a charming village atmosphere, conveniently located ski lift, and short waiting lines, no doubt it earned its place in Forbes Magazine’s list of World’s Best Ski Resorts.
