Ski the Swiss Alps: Spend a Night in an Igloo with the Gstaad Palace Hotel

Gstaad Palace, Igloo ExperienceLet it snow! The peaks around the village of Gstaad in Switzerland are blanketed in fresh powder after days of flurries. Tis the season for jetsetters to descend on the Swiss Alps for skiing, spa-ing, and some serious après-ski merriment in one of the most exclusive winter destinations on earth. Want to get in on the action? Consider booking a stay at the Gstaad Palace, the five-star hideaway that attracts its share of well-heeled guests. The hotel has it all-- from the Palace Spa overlooking the mountains to the nightclub where resident DJ Jim LeBlanc spins the tunes. Looking for something extra special? The hotel can arrange a night in an igloo in the veritable Igloo Village located in Saanerlochgrat at an altitude of 1,937 meters. No need to pack the fur; this igloo suite is the essence of romance. Even though it’s kept at a constant 32 degrees Fahrenheit, the “Romantik Suite” boasts a private Jacuzzi that’s open to the starry sky, with staggering views over the Bernese Alps. The village also has a bar, lounge, restaurant, and sauna.

This "Igloo Experience" is available with a special package offer from Gstaad Palace that’s priced at CHF 1,320 per person for a 3-night midweek stay in a Double Classic Room, including Swiss breakfast buffet and dinner at “Le Grand Restaurant” and a night in the Igloo Village. Valid from December 25, 2011 to March 13, 2012.
