US Vogue recently shared its top picks for the best winter spa destinations. Bighorn, “a superindulgent, sprawling eight-suite lodge” won praise for the “views of the Columbia Valley from the terrace hot tub, on-site helipad, gourmet fare and private screening room”. With a “bounty of body wraps, facials and aromatherapy massages, it is easy to forget you are steps away from some of Canada’s best lift, cat, heli and backcountry skiing“. Other spa facilities include a indoor current pool, sauna, gym and 2 treatment rooms. Private yoga instruction, stretching and personal training is also available. The private chef can create healthy yet delicious menus and can happily cater for any dietary restrictions. Plus, the whole lodge is rented exclusively for your party so total privacy and dedicated service is guaranteed.
Bighorn: the ultimate winter health retreat.
What are the best things to wear for a ski chalet holiday? Aside from packing plenty of warm ski gear, how should you dress for après ski? The beauty of staying in an exclusive ski chalet like Bighorn is that you can wear whatever you like! This is your private domain and you make the rules. If you are looking for some suggestions, we recommend packing some cosy, comfortable and stylish clothes to match your surroundings. Here is our pick of the best ski chalet fashion for this season:
1) A cashmere sweater
Perfect for relaxing in front of a roaring log fire after a day on the slopes. Slip on a cashmere sweater for a little bit of easy luxury.

2) The go-to shirt
You can’t go wrong with a classic white shirt. Teamed with jeans, a casual shirt with a stylish fit is easy chalet chic.

3) Merino wool socks
Lightweight, warm and comfortable, merino wool socks are stylish enough to be worn alone. Who needs shoes when you won’t want to leave the chalet?

4) For the ladies – soft leather pumps
More stylish than slippers but just as comfortable. Dressy enough for dinner and relaxed enough for watching a movie with your feet up in the home cinema.
