The moronic variant makes you want to just get away from it all… and take to the French hills.
Which is what I intend to do in Val D’Isere next month.
But should you need to get the hell out of Dodge now a Joyeux Noel is waiting for you this season in France.
And you will be treated as a Very Important Person (as it should be) with VIP Ski.
What we all want to know (more the authorities to be fair) is how do we leave the variant in the slipstream?
The answer in a word is lodge.
Arc 1950 de Triomphe
No, not that one. This is the 1950m (ah, that’s why) high Arc resort.
Of course there’s the skiing here in but there’s loads more winter sports activities too.
You’ll love the sled dog outings and the visits to the Igloo Village.
As well as the free daily entertainment or descents on the Rodeo Luge toboggan run.
Childcare is also available with VIP SKI to that you can get some grown-up time too.
Je suis un lodger
You’ll be staying in Bear Lodge which puts the friendly in family-friendly.
With rooms or adjoining rooms for mum, dad and teenagers.
This 30-bedroom hotel includes a proper sized pool you can swim in.
There’s also a spa with plenty of steam, piste-side kid’s’ space, gym and cinema.
Your own mini-resort then.
Grand, grand, grand, grand, grand Christmas
So a seven-night stay, from 22 December 2021, costs from £5,297 for a family of four in a family suite with twin beds and a bunk bed den.
You’ll get cooked breakfast and dinner with choice of menu on seven days and return transfers .
Childcare from £279 for five and a half days childcare.
So if you want to get away from it all this Christmas why not take to the French hills.
You’ll be treated like a VIP
