Imagine this

....after a hard out day on the slopes at porters...

Load your gear onto your vehicle and head down the mountain. Just five minutes down the road you veer left and park right below a rustic lodge located on a ridge, set against a superb backdrop of snow capped mountains.

Step inside, slip off your boots and jacket, hang them in the drying room, slide into a pair of slippers and head upstairs to a lounge where a log fire is roaring.
Relax back in one of the deep cushioned couches, pour yourself a drink and chill. You deserve it. Dinner will soon be served and in the meantime, you can relive and recount each downhill run with like minded powder enthusiasts.
Or, if your trail weary body needs rest, spend time relaxing in your room. The choice is yours.

After dinner, if you are up for it, get your gear off and pop outdoors where two steaming tubs are brim full of hot water. Lie back and unwind in a hot bath; a great finale to a great day.
And in the morning, after a fine night's sleep and a continental breakfast, be first up on the mountain to ride the fresh powder slopes.
