Skiing with the girls

There is nothing quite like skiing at St Moritz with the girls. Fun on the slopes and fun after – glittering alps and glitzy après ski.

Flying down the pistes (350 km of them), and then ...
... living it up among cosy cafes, trendy shops
and beautiful people
I have chosen two gems in the alps for my girly break – Nira Alpina  and Kempinski Grand Hotel Des Bains in and near St Moritz….

Nira Alpina lies some 10 minutes out of St Moritz with a walkway over to the cable station. It’s a place with a lot of ambience – buzzy and almost Bohemian.

Cosy ambience with open views - Nira Alpina.
Kempinski Grand Hotel is on the fringe of St Moritz…in the grand old style of luxury. It attracts the international set with the only Michelin star restaurant in St Moritz.

The alps are only a few hours plane ride away, yet so much brighter and lighter at this time of year. You can even lie out in sunbeds and get a sizzling suntan.  Flying time to Zurich, Innsbruck or Geneva a few hours and then a scenic 1.5 to 3.5 hour train ride…or car journey. So why not leave behind the sleeting and smelting  that divides winter from spring…and forget it all...

We have availability still for a variety of ski resorts - from quiet family resorts with ski in and ski out, to the ultimate socialite destinations  among the international glitterati.

Take a look at our Select Collection website for the various alpine countries...
