These European resorts are firm-favourites with snow-bunnies across the world, so prime piste is a given here. Luxury hotels, the allure of après-ski and powder-soft snow all factor, but I share my own personal highlights from the trip.
Taking full advantage of the enormous spa at The Chedi.
It is massive! I had a wonderful massage which I did not want to end. The Chedi is situated in the village of Andermatt in the Urseren Valley, surrounded by the beautiful Swiss Alps.
I was surprised to learn that Andermatt has had a moment of movie fame - it served as the stunning backdrop to James Bond hit Goldfinger back in 1964.
Taking the Swiss rail from Geneva over to Andermatt.
It was the most beautiful journey I had ever taken. Travel time was around five hours in total but I was so entranced by the beautiful views that it felt much shorter.
Huge glass windows allow you to see full views of the mountains - mostly covered with snow and in contrast in some parts bright green archers of land.
Enjoying my first ever experience of eating 'fondue'.
This proved to be, by far, my favourite meal of the trip - which really surprised me! It was delicious, and the ambiance was just right, we ate in a in a local restaurant in Andermatt which was endearing, really traditional and homely.
Our A-list approved accommodation
When staying in the quirky, almost penthouse-like, chalet in Les Barmes de l'Ours, we discovered we were staying right next door to a chalet belonging to a former Formula One driver.
He has impeccable taste; the chalets were really impressive, boasting a contemporary alpine feel. One evening, we booked a delicious four-course dinner from the comfort of the chalet; I can recommend the coq au vin.
