What can you expect from a day in the life at one of the best luxury chalets in Verbier? With all the discussions of ski in, ski out chalets, various catered chalet packages and which luxury ski resort to choose, it can be easy to get lost in the planning stages of your luxury ski holiday. The experience that awaits you at the other end of your booking confirmation can seem a far reach away, especially if this is all new to you!

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A LUXURY CHALET IN VERBIER
Now, the all-important question…what can you expect from a day in the life at a luxury chalet? At Chalet Maurine, you will start your day off in the right way, with a feast for both your eyes and appetite! Wake up to an impeccably laid breakfast table, featuring cuts of local meats, smoked salmon, cheeseboards and beautifully presented fruit platters, as well as the special cooked options chef Alex has on offer in preparation for the fun-filled day ahead in the powder!
After satisfying your appetites, Harry will meet with you in Chalet Maurine post-breakfast. With an abundance of local knowledge and extensive expert guidance, Harry will ensure you are in safe hands as you carve your way down the best ski runs Verbier has to offer.
Enjoy a taste of the best local mountain restaurants for lunch, providing an ideal pit stop for re-energising weary legs from the slopes. With such an abundance of restaurants in Verbier, Harry will be able to propose the best option, most suited to your desires. Once indulged on some of the finest local cuisines, it’s time to head back onto the slopes for the rest of the afternoon, before finishing the day with the obligatory après ski session! Luckily for you, Chalet Maurine is only situated 50 metres away – or more depending on how much Génépi has been consumed – from the main lift station. Alternatively, the in-resort driver service is on call should you feel it’s too much of a stumble.
Upon arrival back at your chalet, the chalet team will be on hand to take your skis in trade for a sip of something to refresh and energise the soul. Relax and warm your muscles by the wood-burning fireplace, as you await the night’s gastronomic feast to be prepared by Alex, catching up over the day’s activities in the meantime. Continue the conversations over the dining table, whilst the delicious signature tasting menu dishes are served to you.
With a wide variety of tasty treats on offer, ranging from captivating canapés served inside caviar tins, succulent small snacks and bold flavours you would come to expect in a winter chalet…take a look at some of the mains and desserts on offer at Chalet Maurine below:
…everything tastes as delicious and luxurious as it sounds! Finish the meal with Alex’s take on Tiramisu – Mascarpone mousse, coffee sponge, coffee ice cream and a delicious smelling hot chocolate sauce (poured at the table) – for pure unadulterated indulgence.
