So…summer is over. It's sad, we know. But that means it's time to hit the slopes soon and if you're into skiing you're probably quite excited. We've rounded up a few sexy hotels that will serve as swank home-bases for your winter getaways.
Hotel Zhero - Schgl/Kappl, Austria
Just a few miles from Ischgl (Tyrolean Alps, anyone?), this hotel is next to one of the largest ski resorts in the world. Glass, wood and stone blend into the modern lines, creating a subtle ski-lodge vibe in each of the 79 rooms and suites.
Nira Alpina, St. Moritz, Switzerland
Situated near Corvatsch, Nira Alpina has 70 rooms right at the doorstep of the Swiss Alps. The hotel offers a true ski-in, ski-out experience and has private access to the peaks.
With three hotels located in Courvhevel and Val Thorens, two of the French Alps' prime ski destinations, Les Hotels d'en Haut spoils guests with choice. Hotel des Trois Vallees has 31 bedrooms and a 50's pioneer spirit. Le Fitz Roy has 58 rooms and a large open fireplace, while Le Val Thorens has 83 rooms, a pool and panoramic views of the mountains.
Copperhill Mountain Lodge, Are, Sweden
Created by architect Peter Bohlin (of Apple store fame), the Copperhill Mountain Lodge has 112 rooms and suites. It sits in Scandinavia's largest alpine ski area, to boot.
