During the long summer months conversation in the office tends to take a turn for the weirder. This morning the sales team spent time between enquiries debating a hotly topical issue:
If each of our resorts were a biscuit, which one would it be?
Fueled by outrage at the disastrous lack of biscuits in the office and after hours of intense debate, we’ve complied the following short(bread)list. Let us know whether you agree or disagree.
Morzine - Hobnob
The humble hobnob is a staple of the office biscuit tin and an excellent entry-level drug for the un-inducted. It’s a jack of all trades, equally at home being dunked into a cup of tea as it is in a lunch box. There’s an undeniable salt-of-the-earth quality about the hobnob which matches perfectly with Morzine’s lack of pretension.
Meribel - Bourbon
Everyone loves a bourbon; everyone loves Meribel. It’s the chocolate crème sandwiched between Val Thorens and Courchevel, sitting pretty at 1750 and regularly found with a dusting of crunchy powdered sugar (or snow).
Courchevel - Pink Panther Wafer
Courchevel looks almost too pretty to eat. The sunsets here will paint the sky a fetching shade of pale pink to match the glasses of rosé which comes out the moment it turns sunny. Big sunglasses, faux fur and tight ski pants are de rigeur; if the Pink Panther himself went skiing, it would be here.
Alpe d'Huez - Shortbread
Sugar, butter and flour is all there is to the crumbly Scottish classic. Why’s it so good? Simplicity. Our Alpe d’Huez chalets are similarly blessed with a heady altitude and great location close to the efficient lift network. It’s as simple as that. If Alpe d’Huez has an accent, it would speak in the same soothing tones as David Tennant or your favourite Scottish grandma.
La Plagne - Fig Roll
They might not be much to look at, but they certainly pack a punch in the flavor stakes. La Plagne may still be recovering from its unfortunate run-in with the 1970’s, but look past the architecture and you quickly discover that the range of slopes more than make up for it.
St Anton - Party Ring
At primary school, it wasn’t a party until the Fox’s Party Rings made an appearance. These sugary little circles of fun are shorthand for a good time. Everyone has a favourite colour, but if you’ve had enough post-ski jaeger bombs you’ll soon find that they all taste the same. A party ring and a disco nap will give you all the energy you need to tackle St Anton’s huge ski area and correspondingly huge party scene.
Lech - French Fancy
The next valley over from St Anton is Lech, home to the world’s fanciest ski hire shop and the prettiest vistas in the Alps. The mountains here are so perfect that they could have been iced each morning by Mr Kipling himself.
St Christoph - Lotus Biscuit
No one really knows where Lotus biscuits come from, but you’re always undeniably pleased when they make an appearance on your saucer. St Christoph is similarly unassuming, but the altitude and proximity to the lifts of our new hotel is sure to take the biscuit.
Val d'Isere - Extremely Chocolatey Biscuits
It’s no surprise that our favourite resort is king of the biscuits. Snow in Val d'Isere is as thick and smooth as the chocolate coating on these delicious snacks. You’ll have to hurry if you want to get your hands on one, though, as we’re selling out fast. That’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
