You may have been on a few ski trips in your time, but have you been on a truly luxurious skiing holiday?
Christmas and new years can be a hectic time, full of parties, family engagements and a lot of planning and rushing around. Now that the chaos is behind us, it’s time to relax, re-energise and start the new year the way we mean to go on.
Make 2019 the year you treat yourself to a luxury skiing holiday and live your best life in an exclusive resort.
So, what does luxury skiing look like in 2019?
Ski in a World Class Ski Resort
A luxurious ski trip wouldn’t be complete without some serious pistes to explore.
The Three Valleys offer some of the best skiing in Europe. As the largest, interconnected ski area in the world, The Three Valleys have something to offer every type of skier, from cautious beginners to hardy professionals.
Meribel, Courchevel, St Martin de Belleville and Val Thorens are just some of the world-class ski resorts in the region. Explore over 600 km of groomed runs with excellent snow cover all season long.
Dine Like Royalty in a Catered Chalet
The best luxury ski chalets provide sumptuous, four course meals for their guests. After all, who wants to lift a finger in the kitchen whilst on holiday? Enjoy your breakfast, afternoon tea and evening meal lovingly prepared by a Michelin star chef in the most exclusive of catered chalets.
Tasting the very best alpine cuisine has to offer is a great way to end a vigorous day out on the slopes. Locally sourced ingredients with expertly chosen wine pairings are a recipe for an unforgettable dining experience.
Choosing a chalet with a personal chef on hand to concoct exquisite gastronomical delights ensures a truly luxurious skiing experience.
Live the High Life at Exclusive Aprés Ski Spots
A skiing holiday isn’t all about staying in.
What would a luxury skiing trip be without a night out at an exclusive aprés ski bar?
Mingle with celebrities at some of the most fashionable night spots in the Alps. Meribel is famed for its vibrant nightlife, head to Le Rond Point to be spoilt for choice with bars, restaurants and late night parties. Whether you’re looking for cocktails, live music or a quiet drink, Meribel has it all.
Unwind in a Fully Equipped Spa
A day spend mastering the slopes is tough work. The perfect way to ease aching muscles and cold toes is to sink into a bubbling jacuzzi in a five-star spa. Most luxury ski chalets come equipped with a steam room, swimming pool and massage room, which can make it hard to leave the comfort of the chalet!
Make the most of your ski holiday by replenishing your energy and pampering sore limbs with spa treatments so you can go even harder the next day.
Hone Your Technique in the Gym
Gym bunnies don’t have to worry about missing out on treadmill time during a luxury ski holiday in 2019. To really start the year right and keep up with those new year’s resolutions, make the most of the gym that can be found in any luxury chalet worth their salt.
Targeted exercises can make all the difference to your skiing technique, and strengthening specific muscle groups helps to avoid injury. For a truly luxurious ski experience, hire the expertise of a personal trainer to really raise your skiing game.
Catch up on the Latest Releases
A holiday needn’t be all go go go. Valuable downtime with family and friends is what it’s really all about.
Watch the latest film releases from the comfort of your home cinema room in your luxury chalet. All the fun of the cinema without the crowds! Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
Travel in Style
Travelling to your ski resort can often feel like an impossible mission. Long, complicated transport routes and cramped spaces can take the excitement out of travel within seconds of entering an overstuffed car.
Live the life of luxury and enjoy a private transfer to your resort instead. The best luxury chalets will transport you to your accommodation straight from the airport. Recline in a spacious vehicle, and enjoy the refreshments on offer as the beautiful alpine scenery rolls past your window.
Let Childcare Be Taken Care of
Travelling as a family doesn’t have to mean compromising on luxury. A luxury chalet will cater to all ages with flexibility and personalised service. From earlier mealtimes for children, family-friendly entertainment and facilities for little ones, a luxury ski holiday makes a great family trip.
Keen to get some alone time for the night? Child care can be arranged so you can have a night off from being mum and dad. Qualified nannies with years of experience can be on hand for when you fancy a night on the town.
Relax in Front of a Crackling Log Fire
A luxury ski holiday conjures up idyllic images of cosying up in front of a log fire after a resplendent meal, surrounded by loved ones.
A ski trip to the Three Valleys won’t disappoint.
This alpine ski area is a charming setting for the holiday of a lifetime. Beautiful snowy peaks, traditional wooden chalets and glistening pines are what this place is made of.
So sit back, relax and make the most of it!
Have your Every Need Catered For
There’s no need to lift so much as a finger when you aren’t tearing up the slopes on your luxury skiing holiday. These days, everything from transport around the resort, spa treatments and restaurant bookings can all be taken care of by experienced helpers.
Even your lift pass is included in most luxury packages.
Train with Hand Picked Ski Instructors
To perfect your technique, it’s worth taking a lesson with a skilled ski instructor. Make 2019 your year to shine on the slopes and take your skiing to the next level.
Luxury ski holiday packages will be able to recommend the very best, sought after instructors in the area to help hone your skills.
