For Alpine splendor, St Anton is peppered with luxury boutique hotels and state of the art facilities, all in an atmospheric Tyrolean mountain village setting. With challenging slopes, it’s a resort geared towards the more advanced skier, rather than those of us with the skiing equivalent of two left feet (though there’s always indoor rock climbing, riding, or... yodelling?).
Despite this, it’s perfectly family friendly, boasting a reputable children’s ski school and youth Centre to welcome the patter of tiny skis. For the utmost in luxury après-ski, try the picturesque Das Mooser Hotel.

If you’re a casual celeb spotter, it’s a renowned hot spot for the rich and famous, and with almost three meters on the upper slopes of Aspen – it boasts enough snow to give Narnia a run for it's money. Venture into Little Nell, Aspen Mountain’s only ski in/ski out hotel, featuring roaring fireplaces and sumptuous soaking tubs.
