Those in the know picnic in the snow!

15th February 2007 Print
Forget queuing for hours and missing out on valuable time on the slopes - pre-order a hearty picnic to be delivered to you on the piste and be the envy of your fellow skiers!

The service (currently available in the resorts of Méribel, Courchevel, Val d’Isère and Tignes) uses ski/snowboarder couriers who will deliver locally sourced food and drink directly to you on the piste at your chosen time and location. Convenient, healthy and hassle-free. More of an occasion!

Whether it is hot soup, a fresh baguette with local savoyarde cheese or fois gras and Bollinger delivered by a tail-coated butler, who will be happy to dig a trench for your ski boots – Picnics On The Piste have a bag that will suit everyone.

Mark Strachan, founder of Picnics On The Piste: “A picnic on the slopes is far more than just a picnic – it should be an occasion to remember. Every picnic is special and we want all our customers to have fun. After all people are on holiday!”

Each of the picnics are named after the ski runs –starter picnic is Green, then Blue, Red is the more challenging picnic and the exclusive Black picnic is reserved for gourmet customers. Every picnic contains fun badges that you can award your ski group during the week – hands will fly up for ‘most improved skier’, but who will go home with ‘biggest whinger’ or ‘best crash’! Or how about a magician to entertain children and adults alike?

For those looking for the ultimate picnic in the snow, Picnics On The Piste can organise a Skidoo Experience. Take a flight in a small plane from Méribel to Val D’Isère, land by the Skidoo park and whiz off for a ride.

Drive your own Skidoo or choose to ride as a passenger to a stunning, secluded picnic location where your personal waiter will greet you on arrival. Enjoy your picnic overlooking over Lake Tignes with Mount Blanc in the distance. This beautiful, private spot is completely inaccessible to skiers. Unmistakably the best view in Val d'Isère. Little surprise Picnics On The Piste have had a proposal or two this season!

If you are looking for some party action, how about organising a mass picnic or a private party in Picnincs On The Piste’s newly built igloo in Val d’Isère? Definitely one you won’t forget!

Picnics can be pre-ordered prior to leaving for a skiing holiday or ordered at the resort, either by text or calling the Picnic Hotline in the resort. Picnics are priced from £9.99 per person.
