Courchevel - France


France’s flagship ski resort has long been the primary choice in L’hexagone. A two Michelin Star restaurant in gorgeously ornate, oaky surroundings makes Le Chabichou Hotel stand out as a fine choice for gastronomes.

148 lifts make ample transport across 600km of slopes, with more than half of that ideal for beginners, running from early December to late April. The season runs from mid-November to early May, but there’s plenty outside of skiing to keep you entertained. One of the better known events is the Festival Ski et Toiles, where visitors mingle with the stars and watch new films side-by-side with the actors and actresses themselves.

Megeve - France


Whilst Courchevel has established itself as the most attractive ski resort in France in terms of unrivaled prestige, Megeve can itself make a claim as being the first purpose-built resort in the country. This wonderfully preserved and sunny getaway has a classic, traditional ambience which strays decisively from the ritzy likes of St Moritz and veers towards an emphasis on the simplistic, done well. An extensive range of easy slopes make the venue ideal for those who aren’t especially strong skiers, and Hôtel Le Fer à Cheval does an excellent job of capturing the Old France village charm that makes Megeve so special.

With 445km of piste connected by 113 ski lifts Megeve has plenty of room for everyone. The highest slope checks in at 2,300m, and it remains open from mid-December to mid-April. Once you’ve done your time at the summit there’s plenty to do elsewhere. Hot-air balloon riding and sleigh rides are in abundance, or if that’s not enough then you can get your kicks at the Megeve casino. Events are numerous, and this year there’s an International Jazz Festival and Snow Golf Cup among others. Family-run ski company Stanford Skiing are experts exclusively in the Megeve region and can cater for all of your requirements.

Gorgeously appointed interiors communicate to the sophisticated clientele at this historic space which offers guests a Champagne truffle fondue and afternoon tea.

The clue is in the name of Glacier 3,000 which stands – unsurprisingly – 3,000m above sea level and is open from late October to early May. Of the 200km slops in the area the longest is a solid 10km.

Zermatt - Switzerland

A man is skiing down the mountains of Zermatt Switzerland

Based at the foot of one of the most famous mountains in the world today, the Matterhorn is just one brilliant aspect of life at Zermatt. First ascended by Edward Whymper over 150 years ago, the mountain forms the basis of Zermatt’s massive appeal but it is a combination of factors that make it so unique and appealing. Guests will learn, for instance, that Zermatt is a car-free zone. These touches help preserve a charming and mystical aura which is encapsulated in Chalet Zermatt Peak, an incredibly exclusive 5* chalet with a breath-taking interior that commands a 6-figure fee in high season.

Among the 360km of slopes on offer the highest, Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, sits 3,820m above sea level and offers breathtaking views. For those seeking longevity there’s a 25km slope which you can take advantage of annually from the end of November to April, varying slightly depending on snow conditions. Alongside tobogganing and ski tours there’s also a mountaineer’s cemetery, old village and Matterhorn Museum Zermatlantis to take in as part of your extra-curricular activities. Music purists will want to catch Zermatt Unplugged every April whilst sporty types can see the Horu Trophy curling tournament in January.

Jet in via Bombardier’s Global 5000. This astute model really prizes the art of indulgence; the exquisite materials and unrivaled comfort more akin to a leading hotel than an aircraft. A versatile layout combining individual seats and sofas is kitted out in neutral creams and browns for a straightforward but sophisticated aesthetic.

Perhaps the most obviously appealing aspect of Kitzbühel is its striking natural beauty.

Generally, the skiing is easy to average in difficulty (with the notable exception of Hahnenkamm), and the Hotel Kitzhof Mountain Design Resort uses open spaces in conjunction with minimal, ornate furnishings for a refreshing and inviting result.

In a country known for its unbeatable resorts Lech Zürs dares to be different, prioritising exclusivity and remarkable hotels in a fairly intimate setting. Because of the unbelievable luxury available at every turn the slopes are rarely packed, and holidaying here is unlike some mainstream resorts; think piano bars and quiet nights in over rare bottles of wine.

Lech Zürs packs in 182km of unrivalled piste peaking at a zenith of 2,450m, with 47 ski slopes to help visitors make their way around the terrain.

Aspen is the definition of luxury ski resorts; the place to see and be seen by famous names and faces from around the globe. The Gant is Aspen’s premier resort, spread across five gorgeous acres next to Aspen Mountain. Opt for a four bedroom premium floor plan to experience the utmost privacy.

Considering its affinity with celebrities Aspen has a refreshing quantity of intermediate and difficult slopes, with the longest stretching around 9km.

As you might expect there are plenty of activities constantly on show in Aspen, from the adrenaline-fuelled X Games to tubing, snow cat dinners and Ullr nights honouring the Norse God of Snow.

This luxurious retreat is peppered with delightful boutiques and refined condos. Convenience is high on the agenda, with laborious walks to and from slopes cast aside by a practical layout and the addition of extra escalators taking you straight to your destination. It’s difficult to go wrong when it comes to accommodation at Beaver Creek, but if you can’t decide then try the Premium Package at Trappers Cabin, with a personal chef and concierge.

Beaver Creek’s slopes are impressive. An even 150km of piste is topped by a 3,488m peak. Beginner runs are in the minority here – roughly a fifth of the slopes are suitable for newbies – but there’s plenty to get involved in. The Rail Jam Playground is a fantastic way to get to grips with the basics of skiing, and the GoPro Race Day always attracts a crowd.

Steamboat Springs - Colorado - United States

The name alone is enough to arouse a sense of nostalgic wonderment at Steamboat Springs, a gorgeous mountain range spanning nearly 3,000 acres. Breath-taking horizons offer unbridled opportunities to ski across the dazzling collection that is Mount Werner, Sunshine Peak, Storm Peak, Thunderhead Peak Pioneer Ridge and Christie Peak. Steamboat Springs is also the original home of the smooth, dry snow known as Champagne Powder which is perfect for skiing. Indeed, the Steamboat Ski Resort holds the trademark of the name.

If an eclectic range of mountain peaks and near-perfect conditions isn’t enough to convince you of Steamboat Springs’ worth, perhaps Chadwick Estate Villas will prove to be the deal-breaker.

That being said, there are no shortage of amateur skiers and indeed when the September film festival hits the resort is often overrun with individuals unconcerned with skiing. Book a suite at the New Sheridan Hotel.

147 slopes are on offer at telluride with the tallest being Palmyra Peak, standing at 13,320ft. The cutely named Galloping Goose is the longest at 4.6 miles, and skiers can take advantage from the end of November to the first week of April.

Vail combines apt opportunities for skiers with adept entertainment and progressive ventures.

Treble Cone - New Zealand

The mountains of Treble Cone New Zealand

Treble Cone turns 40 this year yet in its short lifetime it has amassed a loyal following and is viewed as one of the country’s best-kept secrets by those in the know. Taking advantage of New Zealand’s remarkable landscape the resort centres around Oakridge Pool & Spa Resort Hotel at Lake Wanaka, a sprawling 189-room retreat, with the two-bedroom apartments delivering a high degree of privacy for discerning guests.

The largest skiing resort in New Zealand’s South Island, Treble Cone is revered among serious skiers and this is reflected in its 22km of slopes, with just 4km attributed to beginners. The highest peak is 1,960km, but adrenaline junkies will note the lengthiest vertical rise is all of Queenstown’s Southern Lakes District. The dry snow and long runs attract skiers from far and wide. Away from the slopes, frequent and fun events are available every day, including the Treble Cone Ice Carving Competition.

The Dassault Falcon 900B is an astute private jet, similar to the Falcon 7X but smaller in size and better suited to intricate parties. Improved engines and excellent range have made the 900B a popular model in the 900 range – a 5.5% increase in takeoff thrust and overall range of 4,583NM just a couple of important factors. On a surface level, the interiors are slick, stylish and professional. A spacious cabin and swanky leather chairs leave guests feeling an unprecedented level of comfort during their flight.
