Ski Hiver Cuisine

Ski Hiver Cuisine for Catered or Easy-Catered options

The great food we prepare in chalet is just as important as the great snow outside and getting it wrong can, quite literally, leave a bad taste in the mouth! Thankfully, we have a lot more control over the food than the snow!

We prepare the menus in consultation with our team, each of them bringing their favourite recipes to create a delicious balance of mountain traditions and exciting trends, cooked using the freshest products available during the season. Then starts the hard job of cooking, laughing, tasting, and sampling together until we have agreed upon and finalised all the different options. Ski Hiver teamwork at its best!

Our team tends to be mature with plenty of international life experience. With a healthy pinch of common sense, kilos of will power and a passion for skiing, they are able to adapt to all situations.

If you choose our fully catered, we can guarantee your group will enjoy plenty of friendly conversation and promise you that you will be in safe hands for a stress-free holiday. At Ski Hiver, everyone has a passion for cooking and the mountains so we can give you advice on where is good to eat, drink and of course ski or snowboard!

Meals on a fully catered option:


To prepare you for the day, your group will need energy so your morning starts off with plenty of choice on your table:  fresh bread from the local bakery, honey and preserves, cold meats and cheese, boiled eggs, porridge, pure orange juice, cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit, drinking chocolate, tea and coffee.

Afternoon Tea:

After a hard day’s on the slopes, just before you pop into the hot tub or sauna (maybe both depending of your chalet) you can enjoy a choice of savoury or sweet with your hot chocolate, tea or coffee.


We focus our attention on non-pretentious, well balanced, hearty but nutritious dishes so expect plenty of fine ingredients, loads of vegetables and colours on your plate so while you get on with enjoying your day, your hosts will prepare and cook a tasty 3/4-course meal just for you. The meals combine many international elements, created with local products and served with our house red and white wine.

We are delighted to adapt and tweak our menus depending on your dietary requirements and allergies but certain requirements carry a surcharge*.

Children's meals (high tea) can be served earlier at 18:30 leaving them free to watch TV, play or go to bed. Children's meals are tailored to the parent's advice but no matter what is served, we always include plenty vegetables or salad.

*Vegan & gluten free and some other diets are charged at 60€ per person upon booking to cater for specially sourced ingredients and to allow for extra preparation time and separate equipment. Any last minute requests upon arrival in resort will be charged at 100€ person. Please contact us to discuss your requirements to avoid disappointment.

Self-catered option:

From experience we know that planning meals for a whole family or group of friends takes a fair amount of time, even if you bring a load of ingredients from home. We are here to offer you advice before your arrival on recommended local shops, supermarkets or restaurants if you prefer eating out.

  • "Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay last week. We absolutely loved the chalet, great location! Also wanted to mention how incredible Rosie and Jake were, the food was outstanding and both were brilliant with our son Arlo. We enjoyed it so much that we are thinking about coming back in Feb / March." (Ali Bovis, Caribou, Dec 2019)
  • “I can tell you on behalf of the group that we had an excellent stay and were extremely well looked after by Cat and Clive. They were very attentive to our needs and nothing was too much trouble. The chalets are perfectly positioned for the skiing and village, plus very well appointed. We have had a boys January week in Montchavin every year for the last 10+ and will no doubt be returning in 2021. I will most certainly contact you in the autumn to discuss the next trip.” (Martyn Pacey, Hermine, Jan 2020)
  • “We had a fantastic time. Really couldn’t have asked for better. Pat and Pete were fantastic hosts, and really looked after our every need. They were great to have around; they provided a wealth of knowledge on the area and where to ski and were only too happy to answer our million questions pertaining to every other aspect of skiing in Montchavin. The food was of a great standard, and we honestly enjoyed (aka loved) every meal. The chalet was really nice and clean. This experience was certainly one of our best ski trips ever.” (Tessa Kershaw, Lievre Blanc, Jan 2020)
  • Thank you for allowing us to share your wonderful chalet. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Montchavin, and in your apartment with Pete and Pat. Pete and Pat were awesome, and the food was superb. We had a great time, and will spread the word this side. (Chris Cooke, Lievre Blanc, Jan 2020)
  • We had the most amazing week at Christmas this year. The chalet was great, the other guests were brilliant company, the skiing was awesome, the food was fabulous and Pete and Pat were the perfect hosts. As far as ski holidays go, we don't know how it could get any better! (Kevin Smith, Lievre Blanc, Dec 19)
