Calling all skiing and boarding enthusiasts! If the thought of cruising down the slopes at night with just a handful of other people sounds pretty cool to you then I would suggest attending a fondue dinner and evening descent! I guess it goes without saying but cheese and chocolate lovers you’re in for a treat with this one too!
Last week was the first event for the season and I was fortunate enough to take part. After we met our guides we headed up the Sunburst Chair which opens especially for the occasion. It was a pretty unique experience being on a chairlift in the dark and after I shook the thought of getting stuck up there like in the movie ‘Frozen’ I was able to appreciate the serenity of the mountains at night!
When we arrived at the Sunburst Restaurant we were offered a selection of meat, bread and vegetables and a delicious cheese fondue and mushroom broth to dip it all in! As if that wasn’t enough, we were then treated to chocolate fondue and fresh fruit and marshmallows to accompany it! Communal dining tables meant we were able to chat with other guests from all over the world and live music set the tone for what was a wonderful dining experience.
We all left the restaurant feeling satisfyingly full and eager to hit the slopes for our descent back to the village! As we made our way down one by one, all you could hear was the sound of your own skis carving the freshly groomed run. I feel pretty confident saying that even the biggest powder hounds will be able to appreciate a groomed 5 Mile at night! For more information on this incredible winter activity click here!
