The hotel price comparison website www.trivago.co.uk has put together a list of top-rated hotels
in ten of Europe’s most popular ski resorts.



London, February 24th, 2011. Fresh powder, long runs, short queues at the ski lifts and a lot of sun –

combination of comfort, service, and location, that’s when a winter stay in the mountains becomes
the perfect escape. The hotel price comparison website www.trivago.co.uk presents ten luxury
hotels, each located in one of Europe’s most popular ski resorts, and offering their guests spa
treatments, gourmet restaurants, first-class service and the best locations for winter sports. From
Spain’s Baqueira Beret and France’s Chamonix mountain regions, to the trendy ski resorts of
Switzerland and Austria, each of these hotels offers an unforgettable experience, both on and off the
pistes.
