Once In A Lifetime Ski Holidays
With the ski season upon us once again, we have the ultimate once in a lifetime experiences for all the ski bunnies out there.
If you are looking for something more than your average five days in a chalet with ski pass holiday, then luxury holiday makers Scott Dunn certainly have the thing for you.
Scott Dunn’s latest tour is an impressive round-the-world ski tour, visiting five countries, three continents in 35 days. This once-in-a-lifetime itinerary invites snow enthusiasts to some of the world’s best ski destinations. For Asia-based guests, the epic tour starts in the powder capital of the world Niseko, famous for its deep powder and expansive slopes of exquisite snow due to the Arctic winds from Siberia bringing frequent snowfalls, covering the ski resort entirely. Scott Dunn partners adventure with luxury, as guests will stay in the spacious Aya Niseko with rooms that feature panoramic floor to ceiling, wall to wall windows to showcase the magnificent views. In true Japanese style, guests will relax after a day skiing in an Onsen at the hotel’s spa – these geothermic baths are one of Japan’s most famous wellness traditions. From the wintery delights of Niseko, guests will be transported to Tokyo, for an immersion into the ultra-modern, energetic city where travellers will explore a variety of Tokyo’s restaurants – from Michelin starred fine sushi restaurants to street side noodles – there are more Michelin stars than in any other city in the world!
Next on the tour is the famous ski resort of Whistler with its pretty tree lined tracks, open slopes and heli-skiing opportunities. Followed by the pristine glaciers of British Colombia and its incredible powder skiing and off-piste experiences, making it home to 90% of the world’s heli-skiing operations for the more daring skier. Guests will relieve the day’s adventures in front of the fire in their lodge located in the picturesque Skeena Mountains.
The next week of the grand tour is in the famously luxurious resort Aspen, staying at the elegant, ski-in-ski-out The Little Nell for five nights. Guests will be able to seek out the untracked powder routes, before indulging in the après ski – known to be one of the best scenes in North America. After skiing Aspen’s vast mountains, Scott Dunn organises flights to the depths of northern Iceland’s Troll peninsular for an unforgettable heli-skiing experience. Due to extended daylight hours and a maritime climate, guests will indulge in the vertical ski descents, vast couloirs, narrow chutes and expansive valleys by skiing through Iceland’s dramatic scenery. Skiing is just one of the many Icelandic adventures that guests will enjoy whilst staying at the exclusive Deplar Farm – Scott Dunn can also organise activities such as snowmobiling, kayaking, whale watching and dog sledding.
The final stop on the epic tour is the charming village of Zermatt, one of the most iconic ski resorts in Europe. Located in the shadow of the majestic Matterhorn mountain, Zermatt has a selection of exquisite restaurants, a historic mountain railway and a range of beautifully maintained slopes in a high-altitude ski area suited to all abilities. Guests will finish the tour feeling exhilarated, challenged and pampered and dreaming of snow!
