Hacked off with last winter’s shabby hotel or cramped chalet? Next time try one of these. You’ll feel much better.

The Omnia Mountain Lodge, Zermatt, Switzerland

The Omnia is the kind of hotel where the rooms are too nice and individual to have numbers. Sitting serenely in the shadow of the magnificent Matterhorn, it’s a sleek, minimalist palace perched above Zermatt’s main street, with floor-to-ceiling windows, wood floors, Tempur mattresses, an indoor-outdoor pool and spa, and extras such as yoga. But no gaudy reception: the Omnia is accessed by a softly-lit tunnel and lift direct from the street.

Price: from £170 per person per night


Adler Mountain Lodge, Alpe di Suisi, Italy

Stunning new 30-bedroom ski-in, ski-out lodge and luxury spa, with a heated outdoor infinity pool, on the Alpe di Suisi plateau in the Dolomites. It’s also perfectly situated for the Sella Ronda and the slopes of Val Gardena. A full programme of winter activities includes guided snowshoe walks and yoga, as well as star-gazing classes.

Price: from £588 per person for 3 nights


Rifugio Scoiattoli, cinque torri, Italy

This is outdoor bliss. Immersed in hot water, sipping champagne under a starlit sky at high altitude, snow all around you can admire the close up view of the magnificent Cinque Torri, in the beautiful Dolomites. This hot tub is the bright idea of the Lorenzi family, who had a fir-wood barrel placed in the snow outside the Rifugio Scoiattoli. The experience is a must at £132 for six. An overnight stay also guarantees first tracks in the morning. Try the bilberries flavoured pasta too!

Price: from £43 per person per night


Kristiania, Lech, Switzerland

You don’t just rent a room – you rent your own private art exhibition. Run by the daughter of Olympic slalom champion Othmar Schneider, the Kristiana hotel houses a spectacularly curated contemporary art collection that rivals any world class museum, and each room has its own piece of it. Other quirky facilities include a ski valet, ski butler, ski nanny, bath butler, book butler and even the D.O.G Dog service for those who can’t leave the pooch at home.

Price: from £188 per person per night


Eagle’s Nest, Val d’Isere, France

The Eagle’s Nest revolutionised the chalet skiing holiday back in 2002, by offering the first indoor swimming pool in a private chalet. Now one of the Alps’ most iconic chalets unveils a new look this season following a £550,000 facelift. Major highlights include a brand new cantilevered deck complete with a panoramic hot tub. Located at the bottom of La Face, which is famed as the 1992 Olympic ski run. Sleeps up to 12. Packages include flights, private airport transfers, private chef, host and in-resort driver service.

Price: from £1,575 pp for 7 nights


El Lodge, Sierra Nevada, Spain

Southern Spain and skiing are not words you’d expect to find in the same sentence, yet, just two hours from Malaga, the Sierra Nevada is the second highest mountain range in Western Europe after the Alps. Sierra Nevada has 104 km of ski area, comprised of 119 pistes. Opened three years ago, El Lodge occupies a dramatic spot and its 20 nordic style rooms can be combined to form guest suites.

Price: from £116 per person per night
