The Omnia – Zermatt, Swiss Alps

The iconic Omnia is a continental interpretation of a traditional Swiss mountain lodge with just the perfect dash of New York inspired architecture. This striking mountain hideaway exudes luxury from its incredible location high above the snow laden roofs of the ski village, offering guests the very best views of Zermatt and the Matterhorn.

Your arrival to this luxury hotel will be one to remember as you enter a hidden tunnel to take you to the elevator that transports you up through the centre of the rock to reach the glamorous lobby – Now that’s how to make an entrance! The attention to detail and level of service are second to none with the immaculately dress, staff greet you like an old friend; smiling whilst quickly learning each guests name before eagerly arranging activities and excursions for you.

The Omnia is appointed with exceptional facilities including their famous restaurant, which serves on the highest standard food whilst remaining welcoming with a flickering fireplace and sophisticated atmosphere.

One of the most unique and unusual facilities at this luxury mountain retreat is the Cavern. Hidden from the outside world, this man made cave is Carved deep into the rock and is a stunning glass and steel luxury den which appears to float over an ice river hidden from the outside world.

The exceptionally serene wellness spa offers a gorgeous relaxation room with heated beds, Turkish baths, spacious steam rooms, saunas, and the not to be missed indoor/outdoor pool and jacuzzi overlooking all of Zermatt and the Matterhorn.

Top Alternative Activities for Non-Skiers in the European Alps

So, you’ve booked your dream stay in the European Alps and can’t wait to hit the slopes and zoom down on your skis to your heart’s content. However…there are some members of your party who don’t ski. It can be a stressful thought to think of a series of activities and things to do to keep non-skiers occupied and enjoying themselves.

Don’t worry! There is so much to do to keep even the most discerning traveler entertained, especially with our multi award-winning ski consultants knowledge and our bespoke concierge service!

Read on to find out just a small selection of some fantastic opportunities for skiers and non-skiers alike!

Dog Sledging

Explore the mountains and plough through fresh powdery snow with a team of incredible (and super cute!) Alaskan huskies. Whether you prefer to wrap up warm in a cosy blanket snuggled up to a loved one on a sled or take control and stand up to drive and mush your powerful pups through the Alpine countryside; dog sledging is a fantastic experience for all ages and there’s no experience necessary!

Horse Drawn Carriage

Feel like you’re living in a fairytale wonderland as you snuggle down under a cosy rug and ride through the beautiful snowy countryside of St Moritz on a romantic horse-drawn carriage. This is the perfect way to spend quality time with your significant other, taking in the awe-inspiring views of the mountains and the alpine scenery. Stay cuddled up and warm whilst listening to the gentle tap of the majestic horses’ hooves in the snow.

Snow Mobiling

Looking for something a little more fast paced? Discover a different side to the mountains by exploring the terrain via snow mobile. Take advantage of the emptying evening slopes and open space in Morzine by taking a tour at dusk to adventure into the valley. This is a great activity to do with friends, family or even by yourself!

Snow Shoeing

Not the most stylish of ski wear on the slopes but this is a fun and active way to explore the mountains! Simply strap on two tennis racket-like shoes and walk, run or jump around the snow for as long as you want! You can book an off-piste nature tour or just follow the signs and make snowy trails as you adventure around the white, powdery countryside.

Helicopter Ride

One of the most incredible activities to experience and enjoy whether you are a skier or not! Take in the sensational birds’ eye view of the snow-capped mountains, glaciers and alpine forests as you fly elegantly across the Alps. For those a little more adventurous or wanting to celebrate a special occasion, why not stop off on top of a mountain for a bespoke luxury lunch on a table carved from the fresh snow? We highly recommend a helicopter ride in Verbier, Switzerland.

Spa Day

And now…relax! Take a break from outdoor activities and spend a well-earned lazy day in the spa. The perfect cure to relieve all the stress from everyday life, heal sore muscles or just indulge in a fabulous pampering session. The French and Swiss Alps have some of the best spas and wellness areas in the world. Treat yourself to a range of luxury treatments, experience a traditional Turkish hammam and lounge in the Jacuzzi for a day of pure relaxation. One of our favourite spas is the La Prairie spa in Le K2 5* hotel in Courchevel.

At Elegant Address Ski, we are dedicated to finding your perfect luxury ski chalet to create your dream ski holiday experience. We’re able to organise and book a large range of incredible activities to make sure every member of your party has the most amazing time in the mountains.

Christmas in the European Alps

Where better to spend Christmas than in a snowy ski resort in Europe? Imagine spending your Christmas holidays enjoying the fantastic festive atmosphere whether you’re looking for family friendly fun, sophisticated glamour or an exciting party; the European Alps has something for everyone.

Lech – Austrian Alps

As one of the most exclusive resorts in the European Alps, Lech remains true to its farming town origins despite its international reputation, with incredibly famous visitors including Princess Diana and the Dutch royal family. The modest altitude of 1,450 metres above sea level allow the resort to receive almost twice as much snow as some the French resorts that are more well-known. The construction of the Auenfeldjet gondola in 2013 means that visitors can now use over 180km of ski slopes that include neighbouring resorts such as Zurs and Warth-Schroken. There are a range of ungroomed terrain with some great challenging trails for skiers to try. For apres-ski, you can party into the early hours in some sensational bars.

Courchevel – French Alps

As part of one of the world’s largest ski areas, the Trois Vallees (3 Valleys), Courchevel is a fantastic way to clock up your ski miles. With over 600m worth of snowy pistes and 170 lifts, you’ll find a slope to suit your ability. Most of Courchevel’s slopes are north-facing meaning they usually get the best snow coverage. Each village is linked by a frequent bus service as well as the lifts and pistes where you can enjoy the picturesque woodland surroundings. Courchevel 1850 is the highest of the villages and by far the biggest resort. Here you will find the main lift hub. For non-skiers or for when you want a break from the slopes, Courchevel has an Aquamotion centre based in Moriond with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, saunas, steam rooms, a hot tub, surfing and a climbing wall for all kinds of entertainment and relaxation. Courchevel 1850 have a beautiful ice rink as well as a fitness centre to enjoy.

Zermatt – Swiss Alps

Switzerland’s most famous ski resort enjoys breath-taking views of the Matterhorn, arguably the world’s most photogenic mountain. The festive season brings some truly magical sights including horse-drawn sleighs and pretty Christmas markets. Snow-sure slopes are ready from late-November with long, scenic runs as well as challenging slopes and easier accessible pistes for beginners. Outstanding mountain restaurants and high-altitude stations present immaculate views and delicious cuisine in the most spectacular of settings. There are 3 lift stations that can access all parts of the resort as it’s car-free. You can heli-ski in Zermatt as well as experience the Gravity Park which is among the best in Europe.

Chamonix – French Alps

Perfect for skiers and non-skiers alike, Chamonix benefits from luxurious shopping opportunities, delicious fine cuisine and indulgent pampering sessions. You can see the resort from an entirely different perspective with helicopter rides or zoom across the snow with highly-trained husky sledge rides. Nestled next to Mont Blanc, Chamonix boasts awe-inspiring views of the mountains and some of the most thrilling skiing around. Off-piste skiing and kindergartens for children provide a range of different activities for all abilities.

St Moritz – Swiss Alps

With glorious sunshine for nearly 320 days of the year, St Moritz is one of the most beautiful ski resorts in the European Alps. Due to the high altitude, you’ll find snow coverage pre-season as well as after. You’ll find the best powder snow on the slopes on the Engadine ski slopes surrounding the St Moritz resort. St Moritz is the most alive in the famous shopping street of Via Serlas filled horse-drawn carriages and stunning Christmas markets.

Megeve – French Alps

With glittering boutiques, incredible restaurants and stunning hotels, Megeve is known as the French Alps version of St Moritz. Ancient cobbled streets and the annual Swarovski Christmas tree make Megeve an absolute winter wonderland during the festive period. The resort is home to several Michelin-star restaurants (one having won 3 of the prestigious awards!) and some of the Alps’ finest spas, you are guaranteed to be relaxed, wined and dined to perfection. Megeve’s slopes are extensive with 3 main ski areas all reached by cable cars with gentle slopes and tree-lined runs.
