Le K2 Altitude, Courchevel 1850, France
This ski-in, ski-out perch by the brains behind Courchevel 1850’s Le K2 Palace is the rebirth of the resort’s once iconic Hotel le Kilimanjaro. The new Le K2 Altitude has 32 slope-side rooms and suites set in an 11-chalet complex, and it makes good on its name with a contemporary Himalayan design concept blending plenty of wood paneling, silver hues, and rich pops of red evoking monk robes. There is a focus on wellness and fitness worthy of mountain climbers and snow bunnies alike with a full service spa, indoor stone grotto pool, sauna and steam room, indoor/outdoor hot tubs, hair saloon, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. On-site restaurant Le Montgomerie is named after the climber who gave K2 its moniker back in 1856, but the stars of this epicurean experience are chef Gatien Demczyna and pastry chef Sebastien Vauxion, whose gastronomical preparations are works of Alpine art.
