French Skiing and Dining at its Finest
Les Trois Vallées has the world’s largest collection of Michelin-starred restaurants that don’t have views of the Eiffel Tower, but trying to find them — six two-star and several one-star establishments are nestled around the slopes — can put a real dent in your day. Now, British tour company Wake Up and Ski offers excursions with private instructors who can lead your group around the pistes, guide you effortlessly to the best on-mountain restaurants for lunch, and then help you decipher the double-diamond complexities of menu French. Beware the wine lists, which can put a real dent in your afternoon.
*Les Trois Vallées culinary tour by Wake Up and Ski, $490 per group per day, excluding lunch, which won’t be cheap.
