Gourmet Skiing Breaks

21st February 2011 • Posted in Ski

Great food is on the menu for some skiing breaks in Val D’Isere, Zermatt and Meribel this year.

This is the view of the Telegraph in a recent article that puts luxury and great food on a par with excellent skiing conditions. The article looks at a clutch of resorts that offer a veritable mix of these requirements, choosing a chalet that excels in this offering.

Skiing at Val D'Isere

Such a weighting on good food during a ski break demonstrates its growing importance. Traditionally fine dining is a pastime reserved for sunshine breaks and not something considered on a ski escape. However, this thinking is changing.

Fine Dining on the Slope 

The Chalet Tolima in Val D’Isere has been chosen because of its favourable location plus an interesting Cook, Eat, Ski break where visitors spend a week out on the slopes by day before learning to cook great meals in the evening.

The chalet chosen in Zermatt has an equally impressive offering of skiing and eating. Chalet Carmen offers cosy accommodation and quaint afternoon tea amongst the more hearty main courses – an excellent taste of home on the slopes.

Finally, in Meribel, Le Petite Pia is a great place to stay for lovers of good wine as well as good food.

These are just three chalets chosen by the Telegraph that demonstrate the growing relationship between fine dining and skiing.
