Mixology In The Mountains

Looking for something fun and different to do on your ski holiday that doesn't involve leaving the comfort of your chalet? We have just the thing for you...

This winter, we are delighted to be teaming up with our friend Kate at The Cocktail Masterclass to offer guests staying in No 1 Bellevarde on 16th or 23rd March 2025 the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary cocktail-making masterclass.

How does it work?

On arrival, everyone will receive a fabulous prosecco welcome cocktail made by your mixologist. All the equipment required for you to make classic and contemporary cocktails including the alcohol, mixers, glassware, ice and a professional cocktail station for each person will be provided.

Your highly trained mixologist will then share their tricks of the trade so that you will be able to create perfect cocktails every time. After making each cocktail, you will have the opportunity to enjoy your drink whilst they prepare and refresh the cocktail stations for the next demonstration.

Cocktail Masterclass

This event is ideal for friends or couples looking to mingle with their fellow guests. What could be better than working up an appetite mixing cocktails with friends against the backdrop of the stunning mountains whilst our chalet hosts prepare a delicious 3-course evening meal for you all?

Not partial to a cocktail? You can still join in the fun with a selection of mouthwatering mocktails on the menu for any non-drinkers in the group.

"We booked a cocktail masterclass with Kate during our ski holiday of 6 people and I’d highly recommend it! Kate is so friendly and her knowledge of mixology really shone through when she shared some really interesting science behind it before making each cocktail one by one which we then copied using the cocktail making equipment that was provided. It was so much fun and every cocktail was gorgeous! My favourite was the Salted Caramel Espresso Martini. It was such a fun experience and I would highly recommend to anyone to do whilst skiing. You won’t be disappointed! Thank you so much, Kate!"

Enjoy The Fresh Mountain Air

If you're worried you might find yourself feeling a bit delicate the morning after our fabulous cocktail masterclass, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered with 3 tried-and-tested hangover cures...

  • A hearty breakfast: Fuel your body with a nutritious and hearty VIP SKI breakfast to give you an energy boost. Opt for porridge, pancakes or a cooked breakfast to help ease hangover symptoms. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, one of our berry breakfast smoothies packed with vitamins is be a great choice.
  • Fresh mountain air and gentle exercise: Sometimes, the best remedy is simply getting outside and moving which is very easy to do in a ski resort! Time on the slopes or a beautiful snowy walk on one of the many walking trails in Val d'Isere will help increase your oxygen levels, improve circulation and give you a much-needed mood lift.
  • A gentle start to the day: While everybody heads off to ski school, enjoy a relaxing lie-in with a wake up drink in your comfy bedroom before a stroll into the village for some dedicated coffee and book time followed by a carb-loaded burger at the Quiksilver Coffee Shop (they serve food all day). Alternatively, if you fancy meeting up with the rest of the group, we recommend taking the La Daille gondola up to the legendary Folie Douce for lunch (or some hair of the dog perhaps?) before heading back to the chalet for afternoon tea, a soak in the hot tub and a cheeky pre-dinner snooze...

Fresh mountain air always boosts your mood
