2) The Cuisine

Although hitting the slopes may take up most of your days, there is always room in a luxury lover’s life for some fine dining, and the cuisine offered by the most prestigious resorts is exquisite.

  1. 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!

    • Carmen Edelson

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

  3. 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.

  4. Yes! I agree with your reasons! The hospitality in places like this play a big factor in the overall experience.

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

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

    • Carmen Edelson

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

  6. 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!

    • Carmen Edelson

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

    • Carmen Edelson

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

  9. 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!

    • Carmen Edelson

      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.
