Katarina, A Style Journey
(Sponsored stay and affiliate) Unlike a lot of my friends I actually LOVE winter. Not the cold (or I actually like the crispiness), but the snow and all the other things that comes with it. Especially skiing and snowy mountains. There are few things I find that releasing, relaxing and challenging – even though I’ve been doing it since I was two years old. So when time allows I escape to the mountains for the weekend and last weekend we visited Hemsedal here at home – and what is definitely the hottest hotel there at the moment, Skarsnuten Hotel.
Besides their modern interior, rooms with amazing morning views, delicious and varied breakfast and an super chic after ski bar, Skarsnuten has Hemsedal’s best location! In the middle of the mountain, with a breathtaking panorama view and with its own ‘privat’ ski lift. Not to mention the hotels well known restaurant, that serves both lunches and late night dinners by no other than one of the Norway’s most merchant chefs, – Bocuse d`Or winner and World Champion in cooking – Geir Skeie and his team from Brygga 11. They’re known for their sea treasures (and they have an amazing Crème brûlée)!
In other words; the place to stay when visiting Hemsedal. We loved how we had all we needed in one place (the stay, the food, the drinks), being able to just lay down in bed with masks two minutes after dinner one night and dress up for the other for drinks two minutes away. All surrounded by the best Hemsedal has to offer; the nature and slopes and modern yet natural design.
For a winter getaway there is no secret we like it cozy, comfy, warm and chic at the same time – a combo that might sometimes be a bit tricky in wintertime. Yet possible! Gathered below are some of our favorite slope-pieces – both garments and PROTECTIVE beauty favorites – just in case you still haven’t prepared yourself for the Easter or post-Easter getaway!
