Two of the finest examples of luxury ski chalets

There once was a time where skiing holidays were reserved for the very wealthy and adventurous, but as more ski resorts popped up and grew, skiing has become a far more accessible pastime, and now you can find a skiing holiday to suit any budget. But there are still some very luxurious, exclusive ways to go skiing, where you can feel pampered and special, and appreciate the finer things in life – I’ve selected two of the finest examples of luxury ski chalets, where you ski and relax in exquisite private environments. “Chalet Infusion” – Meribel village, France Meribel was established in 1938, and since then has grown into a bustling ski resort with a range of accommodation and activities, yet the attached Meribel Village has maintained a more traditional and peaceful area, allowing you to explore the Three Vallees from a more private and exclusive base. The gorgeous “Chalet Infusion” enjoys a beautiful location in Meribel Village, and is a brilliant example of ski holiday luxury. The chalet accommodates 10 people in 5 bedrooms, all of which feature en-suite bathrooms and all but one also has French doors which open out into a private balcony. To hire out the whole chalet costs 12,000 EUR for 7 nights, a price which includes bespoke airport transfers, your Three Vallees ski passes, all drinks from the complimentary bar, breakfast and afternoon tea every day, and a four course meal including champagne and canapés for 6 of the 7 evenings. After a long day of exploring the Three Vallees, you can ski right up to the front door, leave your skis and boots in the heated ski room, and start to make use of the luxurious facilities. Take a Jacuzzi or sauna to relax the aching muscles, then sit in front of the roaring log fire watching satellite TV on the HD screen. If you’re still feeling active there are table tennis, pool and darts and also an exterior sound system and fully stocked bar should you wish to have a bit of a party out in the snow. Should you need to keep in touch with the hectic real world back home, there is a study room, and the chalet has unlimited WiFi access. “Bentwood ski lodge” – Jackson Hole, Wyoming, USA Bentwood ski lodge is a stunning ski chalet in the challenging Jackson Hole ski area, in Wyoming state USA.
