Cheap ski holidays in hundreds of ski resorts worldwide.
There is still so much more fun to be had once the ski lifts have closed… There are numerous activities to explore in resort after a day’s skiing and here at Iglu we have tried and tested plenty of winter attractions and events to recommend only the best for you.
Probably the most fun on snow you can have without skis! Toboggan down the longest track in France and revel in the spectacular views, hilarious moments and adrenaline rushes down the 6km run. From an altitude of 3000m at the Péclet glacier, it’s a 45 minute decent of sliding entertainment through varied slopes and raised bends. A fun filled family activity suitable for everyone from 5 years old.
Enjoy an unforgettable winter activity through pristine Canadian backcounty. See the slopes from a different angle & ride your very own skidoo through fresh powder or head into the remote wilderness with a professional guide. Scenic tours are a great introduction to the backcountry through tree-lined tracks and extraordinary landscapes.
The St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow is the world’s most prestigious winter polo tournament. Nearly 15,000 spectators from every corner of the world make the pilgrimage to Lake St Moritz every year. It is the social highlight in St. Moritz where the World Cup has been held every year since 1985. Don’t miss the next tournament 29 Jan – 01 Feb 2015!!
Experience high speeds up to 115km/h in a professional Olympic bobsleigh. This once in a life time activity will leave your adrenaline pumping for days after. Choose from the Guest bobsled where you can reach speeds of up to 90 km/h through the 800m long ice track, or unleash your inner dare devil and take the driven taxi bob and hit 115km/h over the 1270m ice track. Just don’t forget your lucky egg!
Les Arcs has reinvented this traditional activity of being pulled along on your skis by a horse across all types of terrain. Originating in Scandinavia, competitive ski Joering is practiced all over the world. A series of forest trails in Les Arcs have been transformed into over 20km of Ski Joering routes in a natural environment of rare beauty.
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.
