‘Tis the season for slaloming, schussing and après ski. Snow is falling, the slopes are groomed, and GAYOT has crafted this exclusive list of Top 10 Ski Resorts in the World. Whether your skills are more suited for bunny slopes or black diamond runs, you will find a destination just right for you. And because we feel that your time indoors should be as well spent as your hours in the fresh air, we’ve paired exceptional winter resorts with extras like singular dining, decadent spas, guest rooms with fireplaces and cozy cocktail lounges for sipping hot cocoa (spiked, of course) with fellow powder hounds.
1. Nita Lake Lodge
British Columbia, Canada
Just 500 meters from the Creekside Gondola at Whistler Mountain, this gem of a lodge is perched on the edge of a stunning glacier-fed lake. The setting alone is worth the stay, but lovers of luxury will also relish spacious all-suite accommodations with gas fireplaces, a charming designer spa, and Aura restaurant, serving farm-fresh cuisine, including produce from the lodge’s own rooftop garden. Shuttle service to Whistler Village is complimentary, as is the use of ski lockers in season.

November 13, 2014 – It can be difficult to choose when to go heliskiing. At Last Frontier Heliskiing, we’ve even written a post about it to help you decide when to come visit. You see, every month is different and they all have their pros and cons. March is the glory month; sunshine and waist deep turns. February is cool and crisp and made for long, alpine descents and exploring the deep corners of our massive tenure. Early April is spring skiing at its best with some pow days thrown in for good measure. December can be epic, with those early season storms that seem to never stop rolling in. But January? January is something different.
