Make this winter a real winner with world-class resorts offering skiing to shopping in Sweden, Switzerland, Italy and Austria

As holidays draw near, it’s fun to plan winter getaways with families and friends and celebrate in a large crowd. Chartering a private jet with LunaJets is the easiest way to coordinate multiple schedules and ensure all guests arrive at the same time without extra trips to the airport to collect late arrivers. What’s more, within the ambiance of a superbly comfortable private jet, guests can enjoy down time even before the plane gets up in the air.

Private jets: ideal for transporting sports equipment

What’s more, private aircraft charter is ideal for winter sports. No matter how bulky, snowboards and skis and large winter luggage can be easily stored, and guests can usually access their luggage mid-flight if desired. This also means your precious hand-carved skis won’t get damaged or go awol, which is sometimes the case when travelling with standard commercial airlines.

Private plane travel means no luggage restrictions

No worries about packing extra coats and ski gear, or packing for a full week of activities with different outfits - a private jet has no luggage limit. SImply choose an appropriate jet according to your group size and all your baggage needs. Travel in comfort and travel with everything you may need.

Arosa, Switzerland

Arosa: a hotel with its own panoramic railway; a hotel with bowling alley

As a classic high-altitude resort, Arosa in Switzerland, is a magnet for winter sports, offering everything from downhill skiing to Nordic walking. With all those activities, it makes sense to have a world-class spa to soothe those tired muscles after a day on the slopes. Stay at the five-star Arosa Kulm hotel, which not only houses the 1200 square meter Alpin Spa, but also a bowling alley and tennis court. The spa offers a rock grotto, fire pit, and indoor and outdoor pools and saunas, Ayurvedic and hot stone treatments. Arosa is ideal for those who prefer a more sedate pace, with plenty of snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and sledging as well as the type of skiing that Switzerland is famed for, albeit a great option for gentler skiers with wide, crucible blue slopes.

Alternately, the design-orientated Tschuggen Grand Hotel features a panoramic railway with panoramic cabins ideal for taking in your breathtaking surroundings of the Graubunden Valley.

Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy

Couture and crafts in the mountains

Corso Italia in Chamonix
Go to Cortina, Italy

Despite its gorgeous location in Italy’s southern Alps, many visitors come to Cortina d'Ampezzo without even touching a ski pole. Surprising, as Cortina d’Ampezzo hosted the 1956 Winter Olympics, two Alpine Ski World Championships and the 2021 Alpine Ski World Cup, so there’s no shortage of technically challenging runs and beginner slopes, making it ideal for all levels of your group of family and friends. Plus, this charming town is set against the backdrop of stupendous scenery,with the famous peaks and crags of the Dolomite mountains.

Shop everything from couture to crafts

Lech Zurs, Austria

A tiny village with a mighty Michelin appeal

Lech might not have as much flash as places like St. Moritz and Cortina d'Ampezzo, but that's part of its appeal.

Chic stores, art galleries, and fashionable hotels are hidden behind traditional farmhouse facades. Lech is tiny, home to just 1,500 residents, but incredibly, it boasts the biggest concentration of internationally acclaimed restaurants per capita. A must is the chef's table at the nearby Hotel Rote Wand in Zug, built in 1780 and home to Michelin-starred chef, Julian Steiger. At an altitude of 1450m, Lech always has great snow, and serious skiers will want to explore the White Ring, which connects Lech, Zürs, and Zug over 14 miles, with 124 miles of backcountry runs. Your whole skiing party can explore the 190 miles of slopes, knowing that Lech is particularly good for beginners: it has lots of nursery slopes and plenty of easy blue runs to progress to.
