Okay, there might be closer places to take the kids skiing than Switzerland but we couldn’t resist sharing Whitepod – the ultimate in ‘camping’ luxury.
Whitepod is essentially fifteen geodesic domed pods, nestled high in the Swiss Alps and overlooking Lake Geneva. The pods are furnished in a luxe, modern Alpine style (think wood burning stoves, natural timber finishes and understated Swiss flag motifs) and each includes a full, private bathroom.
Guests at Whitepod have access to three private ski lifts which can be operated twenty-four hours a day (should you wish for some midnight downhill action) and seven kilometres of exclusive trails. There’s also a central chalet, built in the early 1800s, where guests can enjoy meals or relax by the fire, and a new spa complex, where massage therapists will ensure you are completely relaxed before your day of alpine activities.
There’s no shortage of activities on offer. Take advantage of the private slopes with skiing, snowboarding, dog-sledging, snow-shoeing, sledding and hiking – I’m not sure I’d want to leave my pod though!
Contact Whitepod directly for rates and bookings. Travel to Switzerland can be arranged directly through Goldman Travel. If skiing in Switzerland is not your thing, check out our previous posts on family skiing holidays in New Zealand and Canada.
