The best après-ski: a fireplace and a spa
Lodge Ski & Spa, Sierra Nevada
This welcoming Nordic-style hotel is built of wood and slate. It has been redesigned by the British interior designer, Andrew Martin, in charge of the sets in James Bond films. The sophistication of 007 seeps through all the rooms in the lodge: the bar and restaurant, spa, the spectacular suites (all with a terrace) and the baths, lined with Finnish wood.
Nature doesn’t need to clean out the bottom of its pools to keep its waters crystal clear. Have a refreshing swim in the planet’s bluest of blue pools.
