La Peau de Vache is the rising star of the mountain restaurants, with some old hands claiming it now has the best food and service of all. It has a smart, but welcoming mountain eaterie atmosphere. It is located half way down the notorious La Face and reached by the Bellevarde Express chair so be prepared for a challenging ski down on what would be a very full stomach.
If it’s a BBQ that you want then try Bar de l’Ouellette, located up the Solaise side of the mountain. It is a great spot to lounge out on a deck chair and gaze out across the frozen lake and watch as the skiers cruise down the gentle slope of the Madeline piste. With a huge south facing terrace, this position is perfect for a few drinks, great food and to soak up some winter sun.
