Given that cold air unleashes crowds of eager skiers and snowboarders, it’s no surprise you may be looking for ski resorts to visit this winter. From the Rockies to the Alps, snow-covered mountains offer thrill seekers and those who abstain from sports the pleasures of natural beauty. And after hours of gliding down mountains, anywhere with a pillow and a blanket may suffice as a good place to crash, but why not stay somewhere as beautiful as the surrounding landscape? After all, there’s plenty of eye-catching architecture to be found in these snowy spots besides the gorgeous scenery. From a Swiss hotel with a striking spa to a UNESCO World Heritage site in Alberta, Canada, these getaways feature dramatic designs, luxurious accommodations, and access to world-class slopes. Here, AD surveys 15 incredible ski resorts around the globe that are, architecturally, as breathtaking as the mountains that surround them.
