Recently I traveled to visit a few other resorts in Switzerland and France.
Since I wasn’t driving or working, I sat in the passenger’s seat, taking in the views during the long car rides and exploring the resort towns after arriving.
Our first stop was to Alpe d’Huez in the French Alps, more than four hours drive from Verbier.
Although we had crossed over into France, the Alpe d’Huez understandably had much of the same charm as Verbier– snow covered chalets, gorgeous views, a boulangerie around the corner.
But I loved getting to see the new landscapes and the layout of the resort. And I got to see a bit of what Ruaridh’s work travels entail.
Although the first crowd of guests for the season were yet to arrive, Alpe d’Huez was beautiful and sunny and I could just imagine the visitors riding up the lifts to ski down the pistes and the restaurants and pubs bustling for après ski.
With these views, who could keep the guests away?
I’ll have to be sure to tag along for another visit soon!
