No Business Like Snow Business
Summit Retreats director Robin Quarrelle offers his views on the state of the luxury ski market since the 2008 global recession. “Customers are being far more careful about what they book, and pay more attention to value and the particular chalet.

The Next Big Thing
“A crackling log fire, a reindeer skin rug and a mug of hot chocolate after a hard day on the slopes just don’t cut it anymore. What todays chalet-dwellers want, apparently, is steam rooms, cinemas, nightclubs, wine cellars, cigar rooms, swimming pools and even squash courts. In Zermatt, the Heinz Julen Loft is a symphony of glass and steel, offered by Summit Retreats.”

The Super Hot Ticket
“Looking for a seriously sumptuous place to bed down in? Chalet Edelweiss is your ticket, humming with seven floors of grown-up gloriousness, a giant in-house cinema, nightclub and parking for 36 cars – yes, you heard us right – and walls dripping with Picasso prints and Hirst originals. This is less of a chalet, more of a palace. Well, it is Courchevel.”

Arrivals, Chalet Chic
“Grand Designs fever has infected the slopes. Ski lodges now resemble anything from Manhatten Lofts in Zermatt, to modernist cubes with flourishes including art galleries, nightclubs and hammams. One of the more groundbreaking is Chalet Himalaya, a former monastery where 17th century details are juxtaposed with glass-sided bathrooms, a cinema, and glass sided lap pool.”
