JET SET EXPERIENCES: Make it Matterhorn

There is no greater luxury than skiing in the Alpine Region of Switzerland. With the highest elevation in central Europe and guaranteed snowfall, Zermatt beckons year-round. The four areas – Sunnegga, Gornergrat, Klein Matterhorn, and Schwarzsee – are renowned for their “out of this world” skiing with boundless mogul runs to challenge the most advanced skier.

Delight in Switzerland’s flavorful delicacies like cheese fondue, raclette and Swiss chocolate, which are typically paired at dinner – or lunch – with a glass of Swiss wine or German beer (and a spectacular view).

Though there are numerous ski-in/ski-out accommodations to choose from, Grand Hotel Zermatterhof offers the perfect respite from which to relish the spellbinding views.

Exchange your US Dollars for Swiss Francs this winter season and indulge in an unforgettable European experience skiing.

JET SET EXPERIENCES: Say Howdy to a Rowdy Winter

With license plates proclaiming “Big Sky State” and a name originating from the word mountain, it is no surprise that Montana is an adventurer’s paradise – especially in the winter.

The Ranch at Rock Creek is the ideal place to call “home on the range”.  Situated near Philipsburg, and a short 1.5 hour transfer from the Missoula Airport, this Relais and Chateau property is a working ranch but redefines luxury in every aspect.  Accommodations range from cozy western lodge rooms to well-appointed tent suites where a claw-foot tub, wood burning stove and rippling creek acoustics will ensure a restful night sleep.

The fully-inclusive property provides fun for all ages and interests.  Little buckaroos can ride horses, go sledding, cast a line or enjoy a movie night in the on-property theater room. Discovery, known to the locals as “Disco”, offers family-friendly downhill skiing – without the lines.

Explore the nearby mountains on a snowshoe trek followed by mountaintop yoga complete with a fire and hot cocoa for warmth.  For the more adventurous spirits, set out on a snowmobile ride or try one of the many shooting ranges set up around the property.  And when the day is done, relax in a soothing spa treatment complemented by a “saddle-sore” soak.

And no visit to a ranch would be complete without a hoedown!  Get outfitted in the ranch’s gear closet with boots and hats and let the staff treat you to a twirl as you learn to line-dance while savoring world-class BBQ in the barn. Your stay at the Ranch at Rock Creek will leave you and your family full of laughter, memories and gratitude for the opportunity to share this magical Montana gem.
