Vacationing in winter has inched up on the popularity scale steadily among India’s rich and famous.

Skiing has long been intrinsic to European culture, and one of the biggest reasons for the popularity of the sport is the vast expanses of snow-sure mountain slopes in Europe. Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, the Eiger—these legendary Alpine peaks have witnessed unabashed skiing frenzy year after year, and for decades! In turn, they have made France, Switzerland, Austria and Italy the most sought-after winter destinations, attracting royalty, jet-setters and the glitterati from the world over, including, of late, a growing number of Indians as well. If the on-slope action is high octane stuff, the après ski (ski parties) that follow can be no less frenzied and raucous.
