If you are in the mood for some skiing, Hyatt has lots of amazing options. Thanks to Hyatt’s recent string of mergers with Small Luxury Hotels and other boutique brands, there are now quite a few Hyatt properties in top ski destinations across all price ranges.

Aiming for a couples getaway? No problem, because there are romantic properties with amazing spas and onsite gourmet restaurants. Bringing your kids with you? Hyatt’s got you covered with their family-friendly properties in some of the best ski destinations, like Hyatt Place Park City, with large, spacious rooms that can easily accommodate the entire family.

When the cash rates during the peak season are sky high, it’s good to have a nice stash of Hyatt points to offset the cost of the trip. Let’s look at 10 great Hyatt properties spread out over three continents.

We usually associate Japan with spring, because who hasn’t heard about the famous cherry blossom season? But did you know that Japan has great skiing too? The real ski aficionados discovered the amazing skiing scene on Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido a while ago and the luxury hotels are catching up.

The ski season lasts well into late March and sometimes even early April, so imagine being able to ski in the north and then hop over to the south to see some cherry blossoms. Wouldn’t that be just the most epic trip?

The Park Hyatt Niseko is a perfect example of the understated luxury and elegance that Japan is so famous for. If you’ve ever stayed at a Park Hyatt anywhere in the world, especially in Asia, you know that you can expect impeccable and unobtrusive service, contemporary and elegant rooms and suites and all the best amenities.

The magnificent Alps have no shortage of equally magnificent chalets, ski resorts and other accommodations that cater to the sophisticated international crowds. All of this, of course, comes with a hefty price tag during the peak ski season. Thankfully, there are a couple of properties within Hyatt’s ecosystem that are bookable with points and you can spend your euros on delicious food and wine instead!

The Hyatt Centric La Rosier sits in the stunning South-Facing French Ski Resort of La Rosière. At your fingertips you have sun-drenched mountains, feather-light powder, and the perfect location for border-free skiing between France and Italy.

You can have a pain au chocolat for breakfast, then hop over to Italy for a midday espreso or some pasta and end the day back in France. This is the beauty of skiing in the border areas of Europe, as you are spoiled for choice when it comes to food and wine and some fun après ski action.

If you are feeling more adventurous, there’s heli-skiing, snowshoeing, nighttime sledding, paragliding and even kite skiing. Not an expert skier or bringing the kids? No worries, because there are two ski schools that offer private and group lessons.

This is a category 5 hotel bookable with 20,000 points – that’s much better than paying $600/night.

If the name Matterhorn rings a bell, you aren’t alone. But Matterhorn isn’t just one of Disney World’s attractions, it’s actually a mountain in the Swiss Canton of Valais on the Swiss-Italian border. The area is gorgeous year-round, but once the snow starts falling it turns into a winter wonderland and a mecca for skiers and other winter adventure seekers.

After a full day on the slopes, relax in the on-site spa and try any of the three international restaurants at the hotel. This is your chance to sample the Alpine living in modern swiss chalet.

This is an award category 6 property bookable with 25,000 points. The cash rate at peak ski season is $350 and up, so this is a good opportunity to save money in this notoriously expensive country.

Crans Ambassador is practically carved into the Swiss Alps, so you are sure to get unforgettable views at this luxury property. If and when you get tired from all that fabulous skiing, relax in the spa or at one of the pools.
