There’s nothing better than a soak in hot mineral waters, infinity pools or hot tub after a full day on the slopes. Super-luxury ski lodges with hot tubs have now become a ski indulgence and are found in many European hotels. Why not have the ultimate extravagance of a day away from skiing or a morning laze in the hot tub after a relaxing massage and the snow capped alpine backdrop makes a refreshing change from your local gym.
Igloo Village, Zermatt, Austria
Igloo Village is constructed each year in the Swiss Alps, 2,700 meters above sea level. This network of igloos can accommodate up to 38 guests, each housed in igloos that can withstand down temperatures down to -40 degrees. The village comes complete with several hot tubs, built within caverns cut into the snow. We’d like to think that this is how the Eskimos used to wind down after a day on the slopes too.
