I have long been of the opinion that the person who invented ski-ing must be one of the worlds largest and yet most genius of lunatics in the world. I mean who would think of strapping two pieces of wood to their feet and propelling themselves off a mountain at speed!? That aside, ski-ing has become one of the most popular ways of effectively wasting a week, drinking too much beer, and spending a lot of money whilst trying to kill oneself. Les Arcs 2000 is one of the many resorts set up to facilitate this lunacy, and like many French resorts it is a purpose built resort. In essence rather than a town finding itself lucky to stumble upon a handy mountain this is a mountain that is unlucky enough to have attracted people looking for a huge profit.
The lounge area of the chalet included enough sofas to comfortably seat 8 people without feeling like we were sitting in each others laps, a large dining table and a fire. I guess in January when the weather is biting the fire would be on all day, but in the 20 degree C weather we were enjoying there was no point. Meals were inclusive with the chalet and our chalet host, Harry, was a competent cook. At nineteen years of age he could cook better than most people I know and served a variety of well presented and very tasty three course means including baked cod marinated in lemon and herbs with mustard potatoes and a spicy chorizo sauce.
