Cheap ski holidays in hundreds of ski resorts worldwide.
With the exciting news of the Royal baby being born, we couldn’t help feeling patriotic here at Iglu. With this in mind it gave us an excellent idea for this week’s top 5… Top 5 Royal Resorts. The British Royal family are famous for heading to the slopes each winter and their holidays are often heavily publicised in the press.
A ski holiday is the perfect time to feel like royalty. Here are our top 5 resorts that are fit for a king
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:
1. Restaurant Combatseline – Nendaz
This sun soaked restaurant is well priced for Switzerland and dominated by magnificent mountain views from the middle of the 4 Valleys. Combatseline is Located at the top of 63 Novelli chairlift from Siviez, right between Nendez, Veysonnaz and Verbier.
2.Cap Horn - Courchevel
This large, swanky, sunny terrace overlooks the Courchevel Altiport and is an ideal spot for people-watching Celebrities and Millionaires. It is the perfect place to make the most of the sunshine, just don’t forget a bundle of cash!

UK Snowboarder Jamie Barrow set the world indoor snowboard speed record at the weekend after reaching 69.4km/h at SnowWorld in Landgraaf.
Back in April Jamie broke the British Snowboard Speed Record Record down the Mont Fort Speed Track in Verbier after clocking a huge 151.60km/h.
Jamie chose to attempt this record at SnowWorld as it is the world’s biggest indoor snowdome with a massive 520 meter long slope.
Jamie was overjoyed to have broke another record and afterwards said, “I’m really happy with the result and the opportunity to both train and set another record. This has given me even more confidence to push my limits and hopefully set more speed records in the future.”
He added, “I hope this record will encourage others to attempt to beat it and go even faster. Without competition the sport wouldn't be where it is at the moment.”
