IF SKI RESORTS WERE BISCUITS...
Monday August 5, 2019 - Email this article to a friend

VIP SKI must be missing the winter as it's come up with a rather odd analogy of ski resorts and their biscuit equivalents.







Take a read of this odd, yet strangely comprehensible, run through of some favourite resorts.

Do you agree with VIP SKI's reasoning?

What would your choice be?

Morzine - Hobnob

The humble hobnob is a staple of the office biscuit tin and an excellent entry-level drug for the un-inducted.

It's a jack of all trades.

There's an undeniable salt-of-the-earth quality about the hobnob which matches perfectly with Morzine's lack of pretension.

Meribel - Bourbon

Everyone loves a bourbon - Everyone loves Meribel.

It's the chocolate crème sandwiched between Val Thorens and Courchevel, sitting pretty at 1750 and regularly found with a dusting of crunchy powdered sugar (or snow).

Courchevel - Pink Panther Wafer

Courchevel looks almost too pretty to eat.

Big sunglasses, faux fur and tight ski pants are de rigeur;

If the Pink Panther himself went skiing, it would be here.

Alpe d'Huez - Shortbread

Sugar, butter and flour is all there is to the crumbly Scottish classic.

Why's it so good? Simplicity.

VIP SKI's Alpe d'Huez chalets are blessed with a heady altitude and great location close to the efficient lift network.

It's as simple as that.

La Plagne - Fig Roll

'They might not be much to look at, but they certainly pack a punch in the flavour stakes.'

'La Plagne may still be recovering from its unfortunate run-in with the 1970's, but look past the architecture and you quickly discover that the range of slopes more than make up for it.'

St Anton - Party Ring

Is this a surprise a to anyone?

Lech - French Fancy

'The mountains here are so perfect that they could have been iced each morning by Mr Kipling himself.'

St ChristophSt Christoph

























St Christoph - Lotus Biscuit

No one really knows where Lotus biscuits come from, but you're always undeniably pleased when they make an appearance on your saucer.

St Christoph is similarly unassuming...

Val d'Isere - Extremely Chocolatey Biscuits.

VIP SKI's favourite resort and 'the king' of the biscuits.

'Snow in Val d'Isere is as thick and smooth as the chocolate coating on these delicious snacks.'
