This week’s Top 5 is all sun terraces!

Imagine sitting with an ice cold drink, on a sun drenched terrace, overlooking the most owe inspiring mountain views after a day on the slopes, sounds like paradise doesn’t it? With the fantastic weather in the UK at the moment, we cannot help but remember our favourite winter days soaking up the sunshine in the snow.

Here at Iglu we’ve had our fair share of sunny days on a mountain restaurant terrace (after a hard day skiing of course!) so the competition was tough but we’ve narrowed down our top 5 just for you. A special mention goes to our ‘wild card,’ choice Las Vegas Lodge in San Cassiano, Italy. A jewel in the Dolomites, the beauty of this place is remarkable with its wooden décor, bordered by the finest ski slopes and totally immersed in unforgettable panoramic views.

Here are our Top 5 Sun Terraces on the Slopes:
