Royal Ski Destinations – A Glimpse into Regal Winter Escapes
When it comes to winter getaways, even royals can’t resist the allure of the slopes. The British Royal Family, known for their love of skiing, often graces the headlines with their ski trips, captivating the world’s attention. While Klosters has been Prince Charles’ cherished resort, the pristine landscapes of Méribel and Courchevel in the Three Valleys have also captured their majestic attention. William and Kate have shared that Courchevel is their favourite ski resort (see picture below). On the other hand, Zara Tindall (Queen’s granddaughter) and Mike Tindall enjoy skiing at Val-d’Isère.
Each resort offers a unique experience. For example, Courchevel is great for shopping, whereas Val-d’Isère is known to be very family-friendly.
For Prince Charles, skiing has been a passion since 1963. However, his ski adventures have been marked by both public appearances and personal challenges. One tragic incident stands out – the loss of his friend Major Hugh Lindsay in 1988 during an off-piste skiing excursion above Klosters, where an avalanche struck their group. Additionally, in 1983, Prince Charles and Princess Diana engaged in a playful cat-and-mouse game with the media throughout the Alps. Their attempts to escape the paparazzi led them from Liechtenstein, where Diana had honed her skiing skills, to the slopes of Laax and Lech.
As the royal footsteps tread across various ski paradises, the allure of the French Alps beckons, notably in the exquisite realms of Meribel and Courchevel. Nestled within the Three Valleys, these two luxurious destinations offer a regal experience that mirrors the elegance of the monarchy itself. With a blend of relaxed sophistication and world-class skiing, Meribel and Courchevel enchant visitors with their breathtaking landscapes and impeccable hospitality.
