Harnessing over 20 years of experience, Ski Verbier Exclusive provides exceptional stays in the Swiss mountain town based around its 17 luxurious chalets. The only luxury operator specializing in Verbier, the company’s knowledge of the region is hard to beat with the added appeal of exceptional food and attentive service. Now the Verbier specialist is offering an even more extraordinary experience with the creation of the ultimate heli-glacier picnic.
This once in a lifetime trip begins with a helicopter flight over the spectacular scenery of the Swiss Alps before landing on a remote glacier, which sits at an altitude of 3,400 meters, for an extreme gastronomic experience. It’s here that guests dine around hand-carved snow tables draped with fur rugs, as they’re served by butlers in tailcoats.
Offered throughout the winter months, and even as a Christmas or New Year celebration, this heli-glacier picnic can be combined with a stay at one of Ski Verbier Exclusive’s flagship luxury chalets, Chalet Chouqui. Accommodating up to 16 guests, the chalet is home to a large indoor swimming pool and hammam, as well as a home cinema and games room, and a large south facing terrace with outdoor hot tub.
As many as 12 dedicated staff members are on-hand throughout the stay, including a professional chef who can prepare each day’s breakfast, afternoon tea, canapés and evening meal. Premium champagnes and wines, as well as a 24-hour in-resort driver, then complete the Ski Verbier Exclusive experience.
A week at Chalet Chouqui with a heli-glacier picnic costs $7,196 per person, based on 16 sharing. skiverbierexclusive.com
