Picture this: You’ve had an amazing day on the slopes. You take your après-ski meal at a mountain chalet with a glass of fine wine and panoramic views of the mountain. You consider your agenda for the next day: perhaps a visit to a local spa, maybe a sleigh ride? But for the time being, you’ll go back to your gorgeous vacation home where you’ll soak in the hot tub, then have one last drink before the fireplace before heading to bed.
