    I’m such a fan of skiing and I’d love to do it in style with a private cinema and swimming pool

      We are big fans of it too, although now with my foot injury I’m a little reluctant to get on the slopes.

    Since I don’t ski and my husband does, I will probably indulge myself in the extras, the hospitality, and the food!

      I really enjoy taking a day off when we go skiing and spending it at the spa.

    I am not a big fan of skiing but I’ve always been interested in hanging out in the lounge. I am sure the apres-ski experience is just as amazing!

      Sitting in the lounge next to a fireplace with a glass of wine is what I call relaxation.

      Some of the best experiences we have had is when the staff goes above and beyond to accommodate us.

    I don’t ski – but I love snow topped mountains. So, I think I should just hang out in some of these wonderful places

      I’m not a great skier, but I do love to see the snow on the ground and trees.

    Skiing is definitely an indulgence if you go to some of the better resorts, but I agree, it can definitely be worth it! Some of those extras sound wonderful, we always love a good spa with saunas and steam rooms, and the private cinima would be pretty awesome!

      When we go skiing, I can easily spend one to two days in the spa indulging myself.

    I do agree on paying a little more when trying extreme sports, I feel safer knowing I am in experienced and qualified hands. Of course, enjoying stunning facilities is a big perk too!

      One of our first trips to Colorado, we spend a fortune on instructors for all the kids. I think it was well worth it.

    I suck at skiing or snowboarding, but I go on trips anyway just to enjoy the snow! And because it’s just completely fun no matter how stupid I look as I fall over on my butt!

      I’m not a great skier either. One year I spend most of my time rolling down the mountain than on my skis.

    You definitely get what you pay for, so sometimes spending the extra money is worth it. I’ve never tried skiing, only snowboarding, but I would love to check out a ski resort and indulge in those extras!

      You definitely get better service and a better room if you pay more. Some of these ski resorts really go out of their way to make your stay comfortable.
