When you think about infinity pools we doubt your mind jumps straight to skiing. You probably think about beach resorts in relaxing, hot climates and days spend lazing around the pool with a cocktail in your hand.
Well, that’s not the only way you can enjoy an infinity pool, and these four properties that are located at ski resorts prove it. You can ski by day and take a dip in the warm infinity pool at night to relax your muscles and get you ready for the next day on the slopes!
This resort’s infinity pool can be found outdoors, looking out across the beautiful landscape of the Swiss Alps. If you aren’t quite ready to swim in the freezing temperatures then there is an indoor pool that features a fibre optic ceiling to create the illusion of starlight while you’re swimming – stunning!
In terms of what there is to do in the local area, there are 200 miles of hikes and walks to enjoy, boat roads around Swizterland’s famous lakes or, of course, skiing and snow sports at Adelboden ski resort.
A private chalet that used to be a retreat for the priests of Salzburg, this luxurious property comes complete with a 56 metre square infinity pool that can be enjoyed even in the depths of winter, as it’s headed to a cosy 34 degrees year-round. As well as the pool, the chalet also features a cinema room, an open fireplace and a outdoor hot tub.
A paradise for skiers who enjoy the finer things in life, expert ski equipment is available to hire in the winter and an exclusive parking space is reserved solely for guests at the chalet, which puts you in prime position to enjoy the fantastic skiing on the slopes of the Leogang Asitzbahn.
