Missing the relaxation of the holidays and craving the winter scenery once again, Ernest Leoty and some of our friends left the city and took to the slopes in search of snow, chalets, and of course, another excuse to wear our favorite knits.
Our group found itself nestled in the French Alps’ highest ski resort, Val Thorens within Les 3 Vallées ski area, for a few easy days of ski-in, ski-out from our hotel, Hotel Le Fitz Roy, renowned for its cosy contemporary alpine feel.
Between runs on the slopes, we were treated to the most delicious French food one could hope to find tucked away in the Alps: at Le Fitz Roy restaurant, we dined on raclette, fondue, and a variety of fish to prepare us for our next venture out to the snow.
Known for its village-like feel, Val Thorens is an area easily navigated, so we helped ourselves to views of the mountains during a short walk over to Le Fitz Roy’s partner hotel, Le Val Thorens, for Savoyard specialties and French bistro favorites at La Fondue and Brasserie du Val Thorens, respectively.
After a cold yet beautiful day out in the snow, we took great advantage of the 5 star amenities offered, including the tranquil heated swimming pool, carved out of the mountainside with stunning views, the Turkish baths for a bit of a detox, and of course the ultimate way to recover post-ski, the dry sauna.
A special thanks goes to the Office de Tourisme de Val Thorens, as well as Pros Neige for making sure we found our footing on the slopes.
