You’ll never want to holiday any other way again. One look at this heli-retreat found near Revelstoke, you’ll be able to see why it was awarded the world’s best ski chalet for four years on the run. The whole lodge was created with indulgence in mind – from enjoying gourmet canapes in front of a roaring log fire made by your private chef, to watching your favourite movie in the private cinema. And if you need to loosen up those muscles after a day heliskiing, CATskiing or discovering the resort’s new runs, you can visit the outdoor hot tub, indoor current pool or the massage rooms. If you need a day away from the slopes, you can also ask the team to organise a luxury picnics that takes you by skidoo to the top of the mountain, ice hockey matches on frozen lakes and if you’re celebrating a special occasion they can also create an ice bar for you in the garden.
If the thought of slipping your feet into cold, stiff, ski boots makes you want to scurry back to bed, book into The Four Seasons Hotel Megeve. For this picturesque Alpine hideaway comes with a secret weapon – it features the resort’s first Ski Concierge who not only warms your ski boots before you hit the slopes, but expertly waxes and tunes your skis to the day’s conditions. And whilst you are still sipping the hot chocolate or chomping on the croissants that the Ski Concierge gave you, the hotel’s Ski Valet who will carry your skis or board to the lifts. Yes, really. So if the lodge is willing to do all this for you, how does the rest of it measure up? Well, how about a two-star Michelin restaurant, a spa with individual relaxation pods and hotel walls filled with 120 original art works.
