If Each of Our Resorts Were a Biscuit…Which Would It Be?

Fri July 19, 2019

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.

Behind the cellar door with our Master Sommelier

“A bottle of wine begs to be shared; I have never met I miserly wine lover.”

A catered chalet holiday is all about the food...but of course we understand that the wine on offer is equally important. Wine is a staple ingredient of VIP SKI holidays, be it enjoyed with your 3-course evening meal, quaffed at aprés-ski or sipped whilst bubbling away in the hot tub under the late afternoon sunshine. Three reds, three whites and a rosé are offered in all our chalets, with optional upgrades available too for special occasions or for those who prefer a particular grape.  Our chalet hosts all had the chance to sample all seven house wines and are on hand to pair specific bottles with each meal on the VIP SKI menu.

Skiing: the undercover health retreat

Thu July 26, 2018

How many times have you woken up on the last day of your ski holiday feeling as though you could do with an IV drip and several days of bed rest in a darkened room before returning to work? The heady mix of altitude, exercise, alcohol and over indulging at breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner can leave skiers feeling decidedly run down. Finding a way to cram cheese and chocolate into every meal may seem like a good idea, doesn’t everyone know that “calories don’t count in the mountains?”

Fortunately, we’ve done some research into the hidden health benefits of skiing and found plenty of excuses to do away with the end-of-week guilt, plus tactics to help you balance out the inevitable indulgences. Pass the red wine!
