Ski destinations where the food’s as good as the slopes

by Tammy Levent

Looking for an unusual get away that includes haute cuisine? Look to the mountains. Ski resorts across the Europe now provide dining experiences of any 5 star restaurants. Let the journey begin in France at any one of 5 restaurants with food that is as breathtaking as the view. Continue on to Switzerland at one of 3 dining destinations. Rounding out the list are Italy & Austria.

Key Takeaways:

  • Dollops of healthy exercise, lungfuls of fresh mountain air and sparkling peaks make the ideal ingredients for a hearty alpine appetite.
  • Heaps of history, bags of charm and simply lashings of aristos and celebs. Gastronomic Gstaad could add piles of restaurants, too — more than 100 in fact, from gourmet shrines to atmospheric alpine lodges.
  • Epicureans can take a stroll in the mountains without leaving their seats in the celebrated Flocons de Sel in the chic ski resort of Megeve near Mont Blanc.

“Forty years ago Rene Meilleur built a modest restaurant on a potato field in the farming hamlet of St. Marcel near St. Martin de Belleville on the edge of the vast Trois Vallees ski area in France.”
