See You in El

A Ski-In, Ski-Out Terrace Bar in Spain

Nah, you don’t want your ski boots warmed.

You certainly don’t want to lounge in front of a fireplace.

And there’s no way you’d want to swim in the only open-air swimming pool in Spain’s Sierra Nevada mountains...

That, ladies and gents, is called “reverse psychology.”

Embrace El Lodge, an alpine-style hotel on the slopes of Granada with steam baths, hot stone massages and a chairlift just beyond the front door, booking now for a December 15 reopening.

A sleeping palace of such stature requires some evocative chalet pictures. Also, some brief guidance.

#1. Get one of the rooms with “Pool” in the name.
You can step out of them straight onto the pool deck. No cons there.

#2. Maybe ski a little.
Lessons are available with a personal instructor or in a group. Which leads us to...

#3. Visit the spa.
They’ve got treatments like an après-ski massage. Because a pre-ski massage wouldn’t really make sense.

#4. Eat delicious things.
The restaurant has the only organic caviar in the world. It’s produced south of the Sierra Nevada. Hey, that’s near you.

#5. Or rent out the whole damn chalet.
And that, ladies and gents, is called “self-explanatory.”
