There’s nothing quite like fresh alpine air, the chill and thrill of the slopes, and snow-capped mountains covered in powder. And snuggled up in your luxury home rental, watching the snow fall outside is a cosy place to be.
It’s no surprise therefore, that there’s a growing number of jet-set travellers flocking to the hills to get back to nature.
If you’re one of these, or if you’re even flirting with the idea, here’s three fabulous winter destinations for cold weather fans…
Depending on the time of year you visit, there’s a varying landscape and terrain to enjoy in Ontario. Avoid summer when it’s at peak humidity, and visit in the winter months (December to March) to enjoy sparkling beauty and breathtaking scenery. From the comfort of your luxury villa rental, you can commute to the nearby ski and snow resorts, for excellent runs for adrenaline junkies. Head to Blue Mountain, where Collingwood is a popular choice being the highest ski resort in the region.
Closer to the ground, the still and often frozen lakes of Ontario, are a sight to behold. They also make a great place for hiking and amateur photographers.
There’s something undeniably magical about the French Alps. If you’re looking for winter fun with all the frills, it’s time to head to the slopes. Come in December for a winter wonderland and guaranteed white Christmas, and complete your trip with a top-notch villa rental. Or, for tranquil times, March and April tend to be quieter with it being low season.
One of the major attractions, world-class ski runs aside, is the after-hours party scene, set to a backdrop of mountain tops. Courchevel village and Courchevel 1850 are where it’s at, with plenty of apres-ski, karaoke bars, and top-quality restaurants to make your stay special.
Seducing all the senses, this year-round destination changes with the season. So, if you’re visiting for your winter fix of snow, be sure to come between December and February, when the powder is fresh and slopes are in full swing.
With it being a popular time to visit, be sure to book your Aspen villa rental in good time. You won’t be disappointed with this family-friendly destination, that brings a touch of style and glamour to slopestyle living.
If you want to reconnect with the world, head backcountry on a remote run for unapparelled snow. Or if you’re here for the action, hang out with friends in one of the many buoyant bars and restaurants dotted around the centre.
Snowmass, one of the favourite resorts, is a four-mountain destination for all levels of skier. But, even if you’re not a fan of the slopes, you’ll find plenty to do, including zip-lining in the Lost Forest and bike riding in Elk Camp nearby. Or, if you come early in the season (September) you might be in time for a refreshing gondola ride down the lake.
