A lovely website for finding Ski Hotels!

Today I'm thrilled to be launching a new website that I've been building for some time. It's a site for finding amazing ski hotels all around the world. Welcome to the world,!

I know from experience that finding the best ski hotels requires a lot of time and detective work on the regular booking sites.

The best Ski Hotels in Åre

This is from experience. I have been taking the night train to Åre, here in Sweden, at least once per season for a few years. But it is obvious that it takes some time  to figure out which the best hotels are. With I hope to make this process much easier.

This is what I am looking for in a great ski hotel:
  • It should preferably have ski-in / ski-out. So you don't need a car or a shuttle to get to the slopes!
  • It's great if the hotel has a swimming pool, hot tub and/or a sauna
  • It's great if the hotel has it's own ski rental service. So you can pre-book your skis. Especially when you have limited time or when you are traveling with kids, it can be quite frustrating to have to wait in line at a busy ski rental shop, when all you want to do is get out and ski.
  • The best ski hotels also are not too big. A hotel with fewer rooms will have more personal service.
  • It's good if the hotel has a nice restaurant. 
Do you agree?

In Åre, the hotel that ticks most of these boxes is Buustamons Fjällgård. I love that place, and so do my kids.

I have never been to the Alps, but I've heard there's some good skiing there too...  Like in Zermatt, Courchevel, Avoriaz , Ischgl and Gstaad, and well, hundreds of other places. My friends here in Knackeriet have also fallen in love with skiing in Hokkaido, Japan.

What do you think makes a ski hotel great? Let me know. All feedback is very welcome. The site will keep developing in the coming months!
