Luxury Ski Resorts Face a Season Unlike Any Other
The world's most in-demand ski resorts have always faced their share of complications, namely challenging geographic barriers and inconsistent weather patterns. (Imagine facing the disappointment of international guests who, after spending five figures on non-refundable reservations, arrive to encounter suboptimal ski conditions or closed roadways.)
Now, in the age of Covid-19, notable ski resorts are bracing for an exceptionally uncertain ski season, given the ever-changing restrictions and circumstances. Most notably, scores of Europe’s leading luxury ski resorts remain in limbo, balancing plans for the upcoming season in the face of an uncertain future.
Leading ski resorts in Canada, faced with the reality of indefinitely closed U.S. borders, have had to rely on domestic guests in an unprecedented manner.
The Post Hotel & Spa, a Relais & Chateaux property in scenic Lake Louise, in the heart of Alberta’s Banff National Park, has been limited to regional guests, with winter bookings slower than usual thus far.
