If you’re dreaming of cruising down double black diamond trails while knee-deep in powdery snow, followed by delightful après-ski activities like warming up by the fire with a Hot Toddy or watching the stars while soaking in an outdoor Jacuzzi, these hotels get you. One’s in a legendary American winter playground, while the other two let you live out your Swiss winter dreams; all of them are guaranteed to feed your craving for cold-weather excitement and luxury.

The Hythe, a Luxury Collection Resort

This property is located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in Vail, Colorado, an area boasting 5,317 acres of terrain, making it one of the largest ski destinations in the world. Whether you like to ski or snowboard, beginner or expert, you’re sure to find it’s utterly perfect for your preferred winter activities. Thrillseekers can book more adrenaline-boosting experiences thanks to the resort’s partnership with Adventure IO, including heliskiing with an Olympian or guided backcountry skiing and snowboarding. The Hythe is the newest resort in Vail, a town celebrating its 60th anniversary. Book a Vail Mountain Muscle Relief treatment at Well & Being Spa (which has the only Himalayan salt inhalation lounge in Vail), or sample some Colorado-influenced cuisine at Revel Lounge, like the Colorado mountain train with romesco sauce, tomatoes, olives and endive salad, and lemon olive oil. This holiday season, the hotel is also launching a new pop-up bar called Nordic Nights, where guests can sip craft cocktails and soak in the property’s après all-day spirit.

Kulm Hotel St. Moritz

With more than 165 years of heritage, this property — often deemed The Hotel That Made Winter — offers sumptuous accommodations in a veritable winter wonderland: the magical, mountainous playground of Switzerland. Guests can go directly from the lobby to the powder-covered hills thanks to an on-property ski shop and concierge. But there are other winter pursuits to try, including an exhilarating 75-second ride down the bob run on St. Moritz-Celerina. Back inside the resort, 34 of the rooms and suites have recently been renovated in a vibrant way, with local stone and pine elements, thanks to French architect and interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon. Tables at the winter-only dining Bob Restaurant overlook the Olympic bob runs, where the fare is light and rustic; those at Kulm Country Club are set amid trophies from years of sports competitions, and the restaurant is launching a brand-new concept for the upcoming winter season.

Grand Hotel Kronenhof

Another Swiss gem, this storied hotel located in the Engadin village of Pontresina, just a few miles from St. Moritz, celebrates 175 years of winter fun in an atmosphere of unparalleled elegance. Guests can try new experiences like cross-country skiing across silver trails, a snowshoe tour under the full moon and a horse-drawn carriage ride into the Val Roseg valley. You can also race headfirst down an ice track at top speed during a cresta run, try your hand at curling or play a game of ice hockey in the arena. Just as fun off the slopes are activities like an indoor bowling alley. Book a private spa suite to soothe those sore muscles after a few days on the slopes and you’ll have exclusive access to the space for two hours to soak in the Jacuzzi and waterbed, be pampered with a regenerated body peel in the steam bath and nibble on fresh fruit and sweet treats while sipping Champagne.
