We’d like to take this opportunity to

We invite you to come warm your spirits with a fragrant shot of schnapps or enjoy the pleasure of toasting with friends over a bottle of sparkling rosé or champagne. Add some melted raclette and voilà! your own après-ski, Chamonix-Mont Blanc. Our advice for the coming season is to relax, enjoy its time-honored traditions, and not to let the holidays get to you. Power it down or turn it off, but do yourself a favor and go for a walk(…maybe to your favorite alpine restaurant around the corner.)
