Living the jet set lifestyle is something we all want to do, finding the glamorous ski resorts used by the rich and famous is a great way of adding a little glamour to our lives. Around the World there are many ski cities that provide luxury and glamour with the chance to see a top Hollywood star or a Royal from anywhere around Europe in cities like Aspen, Lech and St. Moritz.
Celebrities of Europe tend to gravitate to the historic and always stylish Lech in Austria when the Winter snow begins to fall. Each year brings a healthy snowfall to this village in the Alps, which is filled with log cabin style buildings that could have been lifted directly from the front of a Christmas card. In the 21st century, this small village has grown to include some of the best manicured and cared for slopes in the World. Gondola’s link the village to nearby Warth, with most slopes shared with visitors to Zurs. Because of its small village feel and isolated nature, Lech has become popular with Royals from across Europe, including members of the British and Dutch Royal Families.
Sitting at the foot of the Eastern Alps, the Swiss city of St. Moritz offers some of the most stunning views available for those looking for a luxurious Winter break. Featuring in a number of James Bond novels and films, this city offers visitors stunning buildings and slopes that meet the need of novice skiers and experts alike. Despite the snow the city averages over 300 days of sunshine each year, which makes it a popular destination for visitors including George Clooney and members of the British Royal Family.
The US resort of Aspen, Colorado has retained its small town charm even through its major development as a Winter sports destination. Surrounded by the beauty of the Rocky Mountains, stunning views can be seen from anywhere within the city, which has a downtown area dominated by designer shops. Stunning tree lined mountains dominate the four popular ski areas within the Aspen Highlands. The city remains an eternal favorite of Hollywood stars of screen, stage and music, amongst those who have been known to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the city are Heidi Klum, Mariah Carey and Jack Nicholson.
