There are few activities in life more glorious than skiing. Enduring frigid weather from November to April is fully redeemed by the rush of clean, cold air, the speed of floating atop snow, and a view of pine trees, stark white powder and a brilliant blue sky.
And after skiing, or Aprés Ski if you’re feeling luxe, can almost be the best part of the day. Your limbs are sore from a terrific workout, your cheeks are rosy from the frosty air and you’ve properly earned a hot meal and some cozy times with the ones you love. Here are some of our favorite places to hit the slopes, and our personal reccos for which Hermoza suit to pack pour aprés:
When in Vail, pack the Katherine
A winter escapade to Vail, Colorado is the stuff of dreams. As far as you can see there are snow covered peaks, tasteful, wintry architecture, and visitors and locals all as enchanted by the city as you are. This Coloradan oasis just begs you to pack your best sporty-chic pieces, and for us that means the Katherine is coming along for the ride. You’ll turn heads in this sophisticated one-piece that offers full shoulder coverage, a high neckline, and an adjustable zipper for a bit of versatility. The mesh detail adds a feminine touch to this luxurious, athletically leaning suit.
When in Deer Valley, pack the Vivian
The glistening foothills of Deer Valley, Utah will take your breath away, Hermoza. There are few hideaways quite as luxe as this one - a place where Aprés Ski mostly means cashmere sweaters, champagne, and dashing through the snow on a horse-drawn carriage. Most resorts here have heated outdoor pools, some carved right into the middle of the mountain. While the sooth your muscles and soak in the thermal baths, you’ll still want all the coverage you can get. For this we recommend bringing along the Vivian, for a sleek, long-sleeved piece that will insulate those gorgeous arms of yours in buttery fabric as you gaze up at the winter sky.
When in Stowe, pack the Genevieve
For your family trip to sweet little Stowe, Vermont, you’ll want to lean into the rustic, Green Mountain State goodness of it all. After a day of chasing your littles down the bunny slopes, eating sugar waffles, and drinking up all the fresh air and sunshine of those gorgeous rolling hills, you’ll likely just want to soak in a hot tub with a cocktail. What better way to nod to the nature of Vermont than in a rich, jewel toned green swimsuit like the Genevieve in Green Papaya? The ultra feminine, classic silhouette has you covered while the brilliant green will show off that gorgeous skin of yours in a double take kind of way.
There’s truly no better way than to thaw out from an icy day with a toasty dip. No matter where you venture, just peel off your ski gear, slip on your luxury swimwear and throw your matching Abigail Slit Maxi Dress on top. Heading to the hot tub, you’ll be a vision in emerald, with a long knit sweater and Ugg boots in tow. Just plunge into the warm water, sip a hot cider, and voila! Apres ski activated. It’s easy to rock your Hermoza piece year round - whether you're a snow bird or snow bunny - just add water.
