For snow-loving travelers looking for an exclusive and unique experience in the Swiss Alps, this might be the ticket. As reported by Wallpaper* magazine, an abandoned cable car station on the slopes of Crans-Montana has morphed into a hotel called Chetzeron. Perched at an altitude of 2,112 meters (almost 7,000 feet) on the snowy pistes of Crans-Montana, Chetzeron was conceived by hotelier Sami Lamaa as an exclusive hideaway that is perfect for the adventurous traveler as it can only be reached on foot, snowmobile, or skis.

A member of Design Hotels, Chetzeron celebrated its grand opening this summer. There are only 16 rooms and suites, decorated with plush furnishings and boasting killer views over the valley and iconic alpine peaks (like the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc). This ski-in/ski-out resort also has a pool, three terraces with sun loungers, a popular après-ski bar and a light-filled lounge enclosed with glass walls framing beautiful views (this can’t be missed). The attached restaurant serves local cuisine paired with regional Valais wines. Advisors who want to plan a special stay should contact Sami Lamaa ([email protected]; 011-412-7485-0800), managing partner.
