It’s March now, the subsequent end of the winter months and the beginning of spring. Winter is essentially over and down with now, and those that have had their fill of downhill jams and merry winter sport fun have returned home to wait out until the end of 2016 to save up and do it all over again. If you or anyone you know are currently impatiently waiting for the next time those three glorious months of winter are back, then continue reading and get ready to take notes.
As an experienced skier, how many of the resorts you’ve stayed at would you deem “luxury”? For some of you, perhaps that might be one or two depending on how much you saved up that year, but for those who have not yet made the leap to first class, now would be the perfect time for you to give it a try and see how good things can be.
A ski resort that knows how to create a balance between the fun you can have outside with the amount of fun you can have inside is definitely one that you should consider very strongly. Imagine coming back from a fun day out in the snow and being greeted by a fully stocked bar and a roaring fireplace to get warm next to while watching movies, playing video games, or even just reading books — It’s the best of both worlds.
Like flower buds in spring, new waves of luxury ski resorts have sprouted in and around Austria and Switzerland, but unfortunately people are missing out on them due to their obscurity. While they may not be the biggest of establishments (some of which fit in only 10 people at a time), you’ll be surprised to see that these hidden little gems are actually greatly better to be at than larger more public lodges.
Keep all this in mind the next time you’re selecting your next snow day ski spree location, and you’ll definitely find that making the leap to luxury ski resorts is the best decision you ever made.
