In three short days: spring.

After that: summer. (Or Mayan apocalypse. But probably summer.)

But before the snow begins to melt, you’ve got some Alps to conquer.

And you might want a handsome Alpine chalet to help you do it...

Introducing Hôtel Le K2, a new cluster of private lodges in the middle of Europe’s stateliest Alpine ski kingdom, available now to close ski season with a bang.

If you’re looking for a grander way to experience Courchevel 1850—already one of the world’s more après-able ski resorts (just ask Beckham)—this is it. For your launching pad, you’ll choose from two options: one of 29 rooms in the main lodge. Or one of five newly built stone and marble chalets with five or six bedrooms and ski-in, ski-out access to the area’s highest peaks. (Hint: go with the chalet.)

Your day starts with a series of death-defying black-diamond runs. (A ski jump in the area was removed for the 1992 Olympics due to safety concerns.) When you need fuel: ski over to one of the mountain-carved restaurants for a bite of duckling confit with a view.

At night, you’ll stay in. Charades by the fireplace. Games of Marco Polo in your personal infinity pool. A screening of French Lethal Weapon in your home cinema. And later: a dance-off in your private nightclub.

You need your space if you’re going to boogaloo correctly.
