Ski resorts are evolving. Last summer we had a meeting with one of the main officers for French tourism in the Alps and he explained that they had carried out a lot of research and found that people are looking for a lot more than just endless kilometres of piste in a ski resort. One of the most popular methods of choosing a ski resort is using advice from friends, family or experts. We have worked out that as a team of people with a huge skiing experience and have skied most of the well known resorts throughout the Alps. And then we’ve decided to open our own chalet, which combines the best features of the world-famous resorts.
Traditionally, staying in a ski chalet was rather regimented and in most cases it still is. Wake up bright and early to a huge breakfast, return around four or five to mountains of cakes and hot chocolate before a four or five-course meal in the evening. But not everyone burns can burn calories on the snow each day so a tub of hot cheese, ham and buttery potatoes isn’t always necessary, but you need to get what you are given.

Here you can enjoy a fun ski vacation whether you’re headed for a double black diamond or the bunny slope. We’ve hosted televised extreme winter sports competitions for more than a decade – we featured the world-renowned sports with park to give brave visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try bobsledding, skeleton or luge. Mountain in Sun Valley is known as one of the best teaching mountains in the country, and Beav outdoor ice skating rink is delightful family fun. There’s also après ski fine dining, boutique shopping and more in store for your ski vacation.
First of all, travel off-season. Check with the local tourism office to find out when their off-season starts when flying, either plan well in advance (ideally, 10 months to a year ahead) or at the last minute (two weeks or less before you leave) – these will give you the cheapest pricing. Try to be flexible- you can save on fares by travelling mid-week, or choosing sunny Varadero, Cuba, over sunny Cancun, Mexico. Save your health – check with your credit card company for existing travel or car insurance.
Getting away from clocks, social media, and the clutter of everyday life can be a great way to “reset” your life. There’s something about that sweet, clean, fresh air that city life doesn’t offer. Something about waking up to a few goats outside your door and a wasp convincing you to exit your bed that gives you a great mix of pleasant feelings.
While Airbnb started in San Francisco and is often associated with a cheap lodging alternatives in major cities, those in rural areas seem to benefit almost equally. The median annual earning for rural hosts was $6,776 in comparison to the $6,674 median for urban hosts. As the balance of the global population has shifted to cities, so have government resources and business capital, causing a widening gap in economic opportunity between urban and rural areas.
It can be challenging to stay healthy while traveling for business. You’re likely adjusting to a new time zone, managing a hectic schedule and eating several meals out.
