Ski Chalets - It’s snow joke…

With the ski season in full swing and absolutely tons of pow (fresh powder snow for those who don’t snowboard) in the Alps I thought I would share some inspirational images of ski chalets that I love...

One of my husband’s dreams (and mine) is to have our own ski chalet, but every time we do the cost benefit analysis (you can tell we both worked in the city at one point – actually, that’s not strictly true – I keep forgetting that he still does), we decided it doesn’t make financial sense for us at the moment (or maybe not ever…). So, it looks like we will just have to continue dreaming… That said, there is some benefit to renting – it means that you can enjoy different resorts from year to year, rather than being anchored to the resort where you own a property. Here are just a few chalets that I would love to own… or even just stay in ...

If like me you typically go skiing early in the season to make the most of the vast dumps of snow but, as a consequence, have to face the freezing temperatures on the mountains, all you want to do after a sick (read ‘amazing’ – snowboarding speak again) day is warm up by the fire with a hot chocolate (or, more realistically, a mulled wine). I could easily imagine snuggling up by the fire in both of these chalets.

Or, after a hard day on the slopes and a serious amount of après ski, collapsing in one of these bed…

So, if you haven’t done it already, why don’t you get yourself onto the Worldwideinterweb and book your skiing holiday – you never know, you might find an absolute gem of a ski chalet to stay in… a chalet that may inspire you from a design perspective…
