The Chalet Cuisine

Ski Hiver Cuisine

The Food in the chalet is as important as the snow outside and getting it wrong can leave a bad taste in the mouth! At Ski Hiver, for the last 20 years we have made it as important as the snow (at least we have more control over the food!) We train the staff at the start of the season and if they are not up to the job we send them home! Our staff tend to be older so they come with life experience and can relate and converse with you. We also ensure they have a passion for cooking and skiing so they can give you advice on where is good to ski or snowboard. We prefer this to employing inexperienced people who are just here to ski and tick chalet work off on their to do list!

Chalet Cuisine

Breakfast: The morning starts off with fresh bread and preserves, a hot option (eggs, porridge or pancakes), orange juice, cereals, yoghurt, tea and coffee. We can provide English cooked breakfasts at an added cost but there has to be a minimum of 4 people to order this even if it is only for one morning.

Afternoon Tea: After a hard day’s skiing and just before you pop into the hot tub or sauna, enjoy homemade cake, scones or biscuits with your hot chocolate, tea or coffee.

4-course meal (3 courses in chalets Barthelemy and Chanterelle) served with fine red and white wine until coffee is served. Our experiences of cooking and travelling to various places in the world has helped us come up with a menu combining many international elements. We also offer an extra course of local cheese on one night during the week.

We are happy to cater for any special diets including vegetarian, vegan, dairy and gluten free, or specific allergies. All produce is fresh and wherever possible we will source from local sellers. We do not employ packet cooks and insist everything is made from scratch where possible. Children's meals are also possible at an earlier time of 6.30pm (18:30) to allow them time to eat and shower before adults have their meal leaving kids free to watch TV or go to bed. Children's meals are tailored with parent's advice and taste but no matter what is served, there is always vegetables or salad on the table.

  • Hi, I am sorry its taken so long, but I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your staff. We loved the chalet. We had a fab time and could not have wished for more. Two very new skiers now hooked and one with rekindled passion. Thank you again Martin, Lou and James
  • Can you please pass on your thanks to your team, especially Kate and Loreen, for a great time we had. What a wonderfully spacious chalet in the lovely village, perfect for families. The food was perfect and plentiful, and the hosting was really friendly and relaxed. Many thanks Dominic, Janice and Murray Pearson
  • Thanks for a great week – your organisation was faultless with ski passes and lessons available as promised on arrival, the ski hire was so convenient being run “in house” and the quality met everyones requirements. Transfers were the easiest I have experienced in 30 years of skiing

  • Just wanted to say thank you very much on behalf of all our party for a brilliant week’s holiday. The chalet was lovely, the food superb and our chalet girls, Emily and Zoe, absolutely excellent. You even managed to organise amazing weather for us. I would definitely consider booking with you again.
