The Mountain Gourmet Ski Experience is an annual event created by Heston Blumenthal OBE and Momentum Ski, where a selection of the best Michelin starred chefs head to Courmayeur, Italy to cook up incredible meals, set in a range of stunning Alpine restaurants. Past chefs include Heston himself, Tom Kerridge, Clare Smyth MBE, Claude Bosi, Jason Atherton, Marcus Wareing & Sat Bains.
The experience returns for the 7th time, with Tom Kerridge confirmed to attend, plus further guest chefs to be announced. In addition to the dinners, guests can enjoy Courmayeur’s skiing domain with ski guides in select groups, dog-sledding, a walk on the Mont Blanc glacier and ride on the revolutionary Skyway cable car, or simply enjoy the historic village of Courmayeur. And the best bit is, with plenty of alternative activities available, you don’t even have to be able to ski!
With more mountain restaurants than pistes, it’s fair to say that food is taken very seriously in Courmayeur and the local restaurants really punch above their weight when it comes to fine dining. Host restaurants include the Michelin starred La Petit Royal, as well as a mountain refuge accessible only by cable car and snowmobile!
