Skiing can be tiring. A hot drink and a sweet or savoury snack will not only help you to stay warm but also treat your taste buds. This is one of the charms of mountain holidays: the moments of indulgence, without guilt!
Snack time is also an essential part of family holidays. It allows you to recharge your batteries and enjoy a convivial family atmosphere.
Are you looking for more of a gourmet experience after a busy day of skiing, or do you prefer a snack break directly on the slopes to recharge your batteries before the last runs of the day?
Find the addresses for a snack on the slopes or in Méribel, in a cosy lounge near a fireplace or on the terrace with a view of a magnificent panorama, a homemade pancake or a pastry, savoury or sweet… A tasty treat is always on the menu for gourmet skiers, whatever their age and whatever the time of day.
