Ski, Soak, Spa: How to revitalise after a day on the slopes

Après bar or après spa?

We get it, kicking up your heels on a table with a vin chaud in hand might momentarily erase the ski-induced aches, but let’s face it – those pains will come back full force once you retreat to your cozy hotel room. The solution? Ski to the spa, instead of the bar (or do both…) and rejuvenate those tired muscles with a luxurious spa experience. Here’s our curated list of five ski resorts with the best spa treatments to ensure your après-ski includes the ultimate relaxation.
