We saw some flurries here in New York City which means winter is officially here. But it doesn't have to mean all sleet and ice, there are tons of wonderful destinations to head to when the temperature drops. Here is a roundup of some of our go-to chilly climes and where to stay when you're there.
This classic winter escape is a real wonderland in the winter months. With serious shopping, buzzy restaurants and plenty of posh places to rest your head. We recommend Hotel Jerome for the jet-set scene where a family can stay in a junior suite or the St. Regis for traditional Ralph Lauren ski style with all the amenities like a heated pool and luxurious spa.
If it's an Alpine adventure you're looking for, Verbier is a perfect choice. With an abundance of snow and no shortage of outstanding views, Verbier is a the perfect playground for more advanced skiers and snowboarders. We recommend staying at the W Verbier with hip lounges and restaurant or for a more private escape try Richard Branson's abode, The Lodge.
