Top of many people’s list of must haves for their ski property is a pool or hot tub. After a hard day skiing the three valleys, the dizzying black runs of St Anton, or taking on the summer challenge of a day long hike, somewhere to relax those aching limbs is invaluable. It’s not just about feeling comfortable though, there are help benefits too. The therapeutic jets of a hot tub stimulate the release of endorphins (the body’s natural painkiller) and the combination of warmth and buoyancy eases pressure on your joints and speeds up blood flow to your muscles, helping them relax and recover.
Many larger resorts have top class wellness zones, but nothing quite beats the simplicity of having these facilities right at hand. We’ve put together a round up of our current favourites, ranging from properties with a simple hot tub, to places with access to some of the best spa and waterparks in the area.Whether you’re coming from the perspective of an investor or second home hunter, a ski property with wellness facilities makes sense.
