The Mountain Gourmet Ski Experience

Following the incredible success of the last three years of the Mountain Gourmet Ski Experience, which has drawn plaudits from both The Sunday Times and Daily Telegraph, you have the opportunity to join Heston Blumenthal and chef friends in Courmayeur for an enhanced 4th edition in what will be another incredible collaboration of chefs working together to create a unique experience.

2016 saw Clare Smyth join the legendary teams of chef Sat Bains and Marcus Wareing in the Italian resort of Courmayeur to lead guests on another tantalising gourmet adventure. The journey started at Heston's Perfectionist's Cafe in the new Heathrow Terminal 2, followed by three days of skiing, one rustic and one gourmet dinner on the mountain by Sat, Clare and Marcus’s team and much else besides.

Next year's exclusive edition of the Mountain Gourmet Ski Experience will take place 17th - 20th March 2017.

"One of my favourite things about skiing (in Courmayeur) is that you're always looking forward to something", Blumenthal says. "What's next? Go up the mountain and come down, then you look forward to your coffee stop, and then to lunch, and then to skiing.
