With winter kicking in, it’s time for skiers and snowboarders to pick up their equipment and hit slopes around the world. This year, travelers should head to the Jungfrau Region of Switzerland.

Travelers will have access to some of the most pristine ski conditions on earth, including the Village of Grindelwald, which serves as an ideal homebase and gateway to the region. Just a few scenic hours from Zürich, the region offers more than 130 miles of unspoiled ski trails and fantastic powder. The high altitude makes Jungfrau less susceptible to variable snow conditions compared to the lower peaks found in American destinations like Utah and Colorado.

Jungfrau is an ideal destination for all types of skiers. The region offers Jungfrau’s Ski School, where skilled instructors teach essential skiing skills to small groups on Männlichen Peak. Memories of learning to ski on one of the world’s most picturesque mountain peaks last a lifetime.

The region even offers winter adventures for non-skiers, ranging from snow hiking to bungee jumping off a hanging gondola over picturesque Swiss Alpine lakes to visiting the spectacular Jungfraujoch and Sphinx observatory. The Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe is the crown jewel of the area, operating as an observatory and visitor center perched on the edge of the UNESCO World Heritage site Aletsch Glacier. Guests can also try their hand at Big Pintenfritz, one of the world’s longest sledding runs, offering 9 miles of continuous downhill excitement.

Down to Earth: Find Your Element for the Ultimate Customized Spa Experience at Chuan Spa

After a stressful pre-holiday season and a busy work schedule, there was no better time for a relaxing spa experience than during my recent trip to Pasadena with the FXExpress Publications, Inc. team. We headed to The Langham Huntington, Pasadena for the 20th anniversary of the GT Tested Reader Survey awards, which meant a jam-packed trip, but I managed to carve a little time out of our busy schedule to visit Chuan Spa at the hotel.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
