Showcasing new additions and ski travel trends across Europe and North America.
Is Easter the new Christmas?
With snowfall arriving late in Europe for the past three years, Easter has become an increasingly popular time to book your ski holiday. We recommend the high altitude resorts in Europe and North America, including ski-in, ski-out Altapura located in Val Thorens, the highest resort in Europe; whilst Fairmont Chateau Whistler in Canada is fresh from a five year renovation.
Welcome back, Iceland
Back in the brochure by popular demand, Hotel Borg is the location for Jamie Oliver's latest venture. Also, new to the portfolio and boasting an excellent countryside location is Hotel Grimsborgir - some of Iceland's most famed attractions are just a stone's throw away, including Gulfoss Waterfall and hot water fountain, Strokkur Geysir.
For a true Nordic winter experience, complete with a visit to Father Christmas, there's two new chalets to choose from in Finnish Lapland. Or you might decide to opt for glass-fronted, pod-style rooms raised on stilts and with spellbinding views at Arctic Tree House Hotel. Make the most of your stay and embark on a ski trek through forested trails or try out dog-sledding.
Resorts for non-skiers
An escape to the mountains doesn't necessarily mean hitting the slopes. Nonskiers can fill their days with ice-skating, snowshoeing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, shopping and much more.
Our top picks for non-skiers? Banff in Canada, Megève in France, Zermatt in Switzerland and Cortina D'Ampezzo in Italy.
Short, sweet & Swiss
For a quick sojourn of skiing, spa and winter activities, the picturesque alpine villages of Switzerland make for an ideal spot. With the introduction of Gstaad, chic Alpina Gstaad offers Michelin-starred dining and a Six Senses Spa for indulgent and romantic winter breaks.
