FOR DINING AT ALTITUDE… IN A GONDOLA!
Fondue in the Sky
Fondue in the Sky is the brainchild of Sylvain Chardonnet, the owner of the Bistrot de l’Orée. At certain times throughout the season you can dine at altitude in a moving gondola enjoying the finest traditional cheese fondue. Take a seat at your own private table in the Saulire Express lift and taste delicious fondue starting at the altitude of 1450m in Méribel centre, stopping at the summit at 2738m, before returning to Méribel centre. Not only a gastronomic journey out of the ordinary, this is also a chance to see the Méribel valley by night. And it’s not just the odd bubble that’s been turned into a restaurant for the night, it’s the whole lift—a moving, ascending, descending, fondue savouring, pop up restaurant. Each bubble can accommodate 4 to 6 people, so choose your friends wisely! Reservation required.
FOR A LITTLE BIT OF NIGHT SKIING
Descente aux Flambeaux
It is the simple pleasures in life that are the most memorable and this is a great example of that. The Descente aux Flambeaux is an incredible experience, allowing you to descend the mountain, at night, with just the sound of your skis swooshing under your feet, the Méribel village lit up below, a head torch lighting your way, stars twinkling in the sky above. It feels like it’s just you and the mountain. The ultimate mountain adventure. To find out which dates this is happening this year and to make a booking, check out the ESF website.
