Altapura, Val Thorens, France
Altapura emanates après-ski opulence with a warm indoor/outdoor pool and Scandinavian-style interiors of light-colored wood draped in white faux fur and accented by giant snowflake cutouts. It’s also the highest five-star hotel in Europe at 7,545 feet, replete with tepidarium and views of Les Trois Vallées’s six glaciers, toothsome peaks, and 372 miles of ski-in, ski-out trails.
