If the cold weather excites you and fills you with dreams of pristine untouched slopes and windswept mountain views, then it’s time to book your next vacation. These luxury ski resorts will fulfill your every need for the perfect winter vacation.
Luxury Ski Resorts
The world-renowned slopes of Aspen cannot be overlooked. Offering a huge diversity of terrain and on-snow activities, such as hiking, skiing, rock climbing, snowmobiling and more, Aspen is the place where winter wonderland dreams are made.
The famous town is filled with some of the finest hotels, restaurants and shops of any North American ski resort. Boasting over 300 days of sunshine a year and an enviable snow record on its crowd-free slopes, it is easy to see why Aspen often tops the list of the most luxurious places to ski on the planet.
Luxury Ski Resort: Little Nell Hotel
The jewel in Aspen’s crown is The Little Nell Hotel. A collective favorite at Supreme Auctions’, this 5-star and 5-diamond hotel has the city at its front door and the mountain at its back, boasting both stunning views and modern convenience just feet away. The Little Nell is both famous for its name, which was given after the historic mine which once sat on the same location, and its history in luxury and fine hospitality. The hotel opened in 1989 and only took two years to bring home the 5-star ratings that it still holds today.
All of the hotel rooms and junior suites were recently renovated in 2017 by New York-based luxury design firm Champalimaud Design. The hotel suites were renovated in 2014
by Holly Hunt with plush, textured fabrics and palettes of cream, blue and chocolate.
All of the Little Nell hotel rooms feature a unique floor plan and gas log fireplaces, and most have private balconies. Additionally, all accommodations overlook Aspen Mountain, Red Mountain, the Continental Divide, Durant and Spring streets, or the hotel’s courtyard and pool.
If you are looking to travel to hit the slopes outside of the United States, then look no further than the Alpine resort town of Verbier, Switzerland. Celebrated all over the world for its mountain peaks, Verbier is the largest ski resort area in Switzerland with 410km (254 miles) of runs.
A fantastic highlight of the Verbier resort is the legendary Mont-Fort run which has inspired the greatest winter athletes for generations. A 1,750m (1 mile+) black run with an altitude of 3,300m (10,000 feet), it is one of the steepest Alpine slopes to challenge even the most seasoned of skiers.
Luxury Ski Resort: W Verbier
The jewel in Verbier’s crown, W Verbier was the first Starwood hotel to open in the Alps and the second 5-star establishment to open in the region. In the heart of the town and perched at an altitude of 1,500 meters, you could not be any closer to the ski slopes.
You also do not have to wait for winter to enjoy this resort. Perched at 1,531 meters, W Verbier is open all year round and offers immediate access to more than 400 kilometers of ski, biking and hiking terrain.
The W Verbier also includes two bars, two cafes, two restaurants and a nightclub to party the night away. The resorts’ 800m² AWAY Spa wellness center will soothe any aches and pains you may have after a long day on the mountain.
Though France is not usually known for its skiing and snowboarding opportunities, you cannot overlook the beauty that is Courchevel. Courchevel is a part of one of the largest skiing areas in the world called Les Trois Vallées which offers skiers summits for every level and taste.
Consisting of four towns originally named for their altitudes, the complex includes Courchevel Le Praz, Courchevel Village, Courchevel Moriond, and Courchevel, previously named Courchevel 1850.
