Winter skiing breaks are the epitome of luxury and class and are one of the most sought after winter breaks. Of all the skiing destinations out there, one of the most popular is Canada, home to some of the world’s most prestigious skiing resorts. So, if you like the idea of heading off on a winter break to do some skiing and want a break that’s wonderfully relaxed and luxurious, make Canada your destination of choice.
Skiing is, without a doubt, one of the most luxurious winter getaways there is, or at least, it can be. You see, in terms of how luxurious a break is, it’s all down to how it’s planned. So, if you want to ensure that your skiing trip is as luxurious as you want it to be, you need to ensure it’s planned to include lots of little luxury touches.
Here are some suggestions to help you to do that.
Plan in advance
If you want to have the most incredible time away, you need to plan in advance because all of the best resorts fill up quickly. This is especially important if you want to ensure that your break is the epitome of luxury, as you want to ensure that you get all of the best treatment. The fact is that all of the best lodgings, skiing courses, and other facilities, such as the spa, fill up fast, so the sooner you are able to book your trip, the better.
As well as planning for the trip itself in advance, it’s also a good idea to plan your activities as well. This is firstly because they all tend to fill up quickly, and secondly because the sooner you book, the cheaper your activities will be – money might not be an issue, but it’s always worth making savings where you can.
Select the perfect resort and accommodation
Canada offers a lot of fantastic skiing resorts, so when it comes to choosing the perfect one, you are spoilt for choice. The most important thing is to compare what each area of Canada offers when it comes to skiing and then to look at the resorts in your preferred area. To select a certain area, take note of the amenities that are on offer in that area and what the ski slopes are like, then look at the resort options there.
There are plenty of resorts to choose from, but one of the most popular is the Whistler Blackcomb resort. This is a popular area and resort because of the wide range of amenities on offer, as well as the fact that it is one of the largest skiing resorts in North America. Because Whistler was once the site of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games, it’s home to a fantastic Olympic Park, which is why it’s such a popular skiing and snowboarding destination. The great thing about this area is that lodging in Whistler comes with plenty of choices, so you can ensure that you get that luxury accommodation that you are looking for, complete with a personal sauna and hot tub.
Travel in style
When it comes to ensuring that your trip is as luxurious as possible, planning to travel in style is a must. The key to making travel more enjoyable is planning in advance, as this gives you the opportunity to consider all of your options.
To make your plane journey more comfortable, consider booking a plane that offers first class seating. Yes, it will cost you more, but if it will make the trip more enjoyable, then it’s worth the cost. Or, if you want to truly indulge yourself, consider chartering a private jet and flying on your very own plane, to your very own schedule.
As for your transfers to and from your resort, make sure to book private ones in advance. Otherwise, you may end up having to wait hours or use public transport to get to where you need to be.
Book an English-speaking skiing instructor
Instead of booking yourself onto a regular skiing course, make learning to ski more enjoyable by booking one-to-one tuition. Be choosy about the instructor that you book – pick someone who is native in English, as learning to ski with an instructor who doesn’t speak your language is a nightmare and not an enjoyable experience.
It’s important to book your instructor in advance, as all of the best ones get booked up quickly. So, as soon as you have booked your trip, make sure to book your instructor. To find the perfect person, do you research and get recommendations from other skiers.
Don’t just ski
Obviously, the main reason that you take a skiing trip is to ski, right? However, just because you want to do as much skiing as possible, that doesn’t mean that you can’t fill your time with other activities as well.
Most ski resorts have a spa, complete with saunas, hot tubs, relaxation rooms, swimming pools, and an array of treatments to choose from. If you want a trip that is truly luxurious, make sure to book yourself into the spa for a day or two. Or, how about planning to have lots of long, relaxing lunches? Most ski resorts are home to some incredible restaurants and bars, so there should be plenty of places for you to choose from.
Taking a luxury skiing break isn’t just about the skiing, it’s about taking time out to relax and unwind. Whether that’s by heading to the spa or having a lovely champagne lunch, it doesn’t matter, just as long as you plan the perfect trip for you and your travel buddies.
So, there you have it, everything that you need to know about planning a luxurious winter getaway. To make the planning process as simple as possible, be sure to take note of the tips and suggestions above.
