Nestled in the Palu Alps in Italy lies a ski resort that invites guests to go glamping among the snow-covered mountains. The Valmalenco Ski Resort caught my attention for its guest suites perched on top of the Palu Alps and only accessible by snowmobile along a snowcat track.
The 2Cuori in Pista is a minimalist suite with a double bed and a private bathroom with a white and Ferrari red bathtub that drinks in panoramic views over the unadulterated landscape.
The bathtub is known as the MINI by Glass Design Italy with its white and red external surface finished in semi-gloss thanks to a process of hand-brushing which enables it to be finished in a variety of chromatic shades.
Chiesa Valmalenco is the main center of Valmalenco, a valley in the immediate vicinity of Sondriohe and is home to hotels, restaurants and guesthouses. The Valmalenco Ski Resort is nearby and features 8 lifts including one of largest cable cars in the world with 160-person cabins.
