Ski Weekends

Delicious cuisine, fully catered holidays

If you consider good food an essential part of a good holiday, then look no further, you have found the perfect foodie chalet company! At Huski we use the freshest ingredients and follow the inspiration of our talented cooks rather than a set menu. We try our hardest to buy local or French products (except tea!) and to use free range eggs, chicken and pork under the 'Lable Rouge' system . We re-cycle our food packaging. Our cuisine is inspired with favourites from France and the mountain environment we live in and always delicious and stylishly presented. See the picture Gallery for pics of our cuisine (not bought photo's!)

"...for 20 years Huski has ruled this roost ....The owners come from food orientated backgrounds, and used to do all the cooking themselves. Now they've brought in their own chefs... Try the honey and mustard duck with sage-infused cannellini beans and the wonderfully-named dessert Mont Blanc Mess...'"

Cheese presentation

We'll tell you a good story which explains the history of the cheese you're eating, with interesting anecdotes, a perfect way to finish dinner and of course enjoy just a little more more wine...!
Epoisse - a rich creamy and marvellously strong cheese from Burgundy
Beaufort - "the Champagne of cheeses", a hard local cheese made from cows grazing on high mountain pastures
Chaource - another cheese from Burgundy, steeped in Marc de Bourgnon, deliciously pale and creamy
Tomme de Savoie - local, lots of different varieties, sharp and full flavoured, alpine cheddar!
Reblochon - made in the Aravis region, made from the creamier second milking

Coffee, herbal tea and chocolates

If you've got room!

A note about our catering

Everyday we offer a hearty breakfast, lots to choose from plus a hot option (except on staff day off when breakfast is a Continental breakfast with yoghurt, cereals and fruit) and after ski tea with homemade goodies.
Our gourmet evening catering is on 5 nights; we begin with a house aperro and canapes and then provide a stylish 4 course evening meal with a starter, main, pudding and cheese presentation.  Friday night is our Farmhouse supper, a Savoyarde evening with Tartiflette, salad and pudding and on one night you are free to eat out (we offer the minibus service to the restaurant of your choice) 


(Catering: every night for weekends and 2 nights out of 3 for mid week breaks)

Organic Option and vegetarians

We're passionate about local food and organic or farm reared products. We are happy to cater for vegetarian and food allergies and will adapt our menu's to suit.  If you would like to experience a week of organic cooking please let us know. A supplement will apply and we can only cater the whole chalet on this basis.

Huski have created their well women weekend staying in their superb luxury chalet Eco Farm. You will be pampered and preened and return home with a spring in your step, re-charged and energised!
