If you still have some energy left after a hard day in the Chamonix mountains, then you wont regret pushing the boat out a bit for this one of a kind evening activity.
Let us whisk you away to enjoy a thrilling evening of snowmobile action and scrumptious Italian dining in the neighboring Italian village of Courmayeur, just on the other side of Mont Blanc.
An exciting and alternative option to the usual restaurant experience in resort.
Wrapped up warm in your ski gear and ready to go, the evening will begin with a short 30min transfer from Chamonix, through the Mont Blanc tunnel, arriving in sophisticated Italian village of Courmayeur in Italy, to jump aboard the cable car.
You will have the chance to enjoy stunning nighttime views over the illuminated village below as we ascent up toward the ski slopes at 2000m, where you will be greeted by the roar of snowmobiles and a glass of Prosecco.
After a short brief, you will then jump aboard the snowmobiles and enjoy a 10-15 exhilarating professionally piloted transfer to the secluded and traditional mountain refuge, the Maison Vielle.
A selection of nibbles and Prosecco will be waiting for you outside, where you will take in the stars and the tranquil mountain scenery.
Retiring indoors to the quirky and welcoming warm interior of the refuge you will then enjoy a local feast of fresh focaccia bread, salad and a selection of local cheeses and cured meats, traditional pasta arrabiatta, grilled meats (lamb, Italian sausage and steak) served with roasted vegetables, and finally traditional local dessert washed down with a digestive.
Once the food has been appreciated the cheesy music will start and the bar and tables will become prime dancing spots, to shake off the calories you have just consumed.
For those who have chosen the ski option and haven’t consumed too many glasses of wine, the time will come to pull on your boots one last time, clip into your skis and make the gentle torch lit descent back down to the lift, accompanied by your guide for safety.
Non skiers will be piloted back down via snowmobile to jump aboard the last cable car of the evening at 23h00.
Expect to arrive back in Chamonix by around 23h30 to midnight feeling extremely contented but ultimately ready for your beds!
Children from 10 years welcome. Skiers must be of an intermediate standard; capable of skiing red runs confidently.
