Why skiing is the ideal romantic break
Dramatic scenery and beautiful views, with fantastic food and cosy evenings in front of the fire – it’s what romantic moments are made of, and why skiing is the perfect getaway for you and your loved one.
Surrounded by the mountains, you’ll have great fun in the snow doing an activity you love, or, if you’re new to skiing, bonding over learning something new and improving each day! A week in the mountains will give you both moments to treasure forever.
Over 70% of Ski Total chalets offer a sauna, hot tub, steam room or even a swimming pool. Delight your beloved by booking a trip to Méribel, France – known as ‘The Heart of the Three Valleys’, Meribel offers some of the best nightlife in the Alps, with multiple bars and restaurants. Stay in Chalet Petit Coeur (Little Heart!), a stunning classic chalet, with stylish interiors and a master double room to melt anyone’s heart with his and her bathrooms to boot! Live like one of Meribel’s smart elite as you admire the views from the fabulous hot tub on the private terrace.
And with so many non-ski activities on offer, there’s plenty to keep you occupied ‘après-ski’ – treat your partner to a romantic meal overlooking the slopes or spend a day at a spa, or relax on a sunny mountain terrace, warming up with a steaming cup of hot chocolate or something stronger to set your pulses racing! Most Alpine resorts also have weekly traditional markets, perfect for a relaxed wander round as you sample delicious local produce and sip a cheeky glass of vin chaud!
Picture yourselves in a classic horse-drawn sleigh, wrapped up together under a cosy blanket as you take in the stunning scenery in perfectly pretty Lech, Austria, where all our Chalet Hotels offer a leisure facility to relax in together at the end of your day.
Perhaps you’re an action-loving couple so head for Tignes where the husky-riding is particularly appealing, driving the dogs and sleighs across the frozen lake and around the resort. Your loved one’s heart will warm to the funky interior of Chalet Arktic with its stunning views from the huge terrace as well as the exclusive indoor pool, sauna and outdoor hot tub. And you cannot fail to be impressed the top of the world feeling you’ll have when you take the cable car to the Grande Motte glacier peak at over 3,000m. Or challenge yourselves to the Valentin piste in Les Deux Aples, a black trail that runs back into the resort – it will certainly get the heart pumping!
And a skiing holiday is a great excuse to be a big kid again. Laugh at falling over together, race each other on the slopes, have a snow ball fight – you know what they say; the couple that plays together stays together!
