Are fresh air, the great outdoors and a bit of spice missing in your life this winter? Get it all at once in the marvelous playground that is Sutton. Here are just a few ideas to fit the bill.
The best belly-warming soups are to be found in Sutton
After a day of hiking, snow-shoeing or skiing, what could be better than a steaming bowl of soup? Asian ramen noodle soup, the very ‘in’ culinary trend, is served at the welcoming Japanese Kokkaku Ramen restaurant. Another meal-in-bowl offering is to be found at the delightful Café Tintoretto. This authentic and colorful spot serves up creative concoctions of chicken or vegetable soups. Finally, the À la Fontaine restaurant is definitely the place to go for their famous classic onion soup made with love and attention.
A fireplace is a ‘must’ on a winter’s day
A fireplace is a ‘must’ on a winter’s day in Sutton for those frozen toes and cold hands holding a glass of wine or beer. While skiing at Mont Sutton,, take time to linger close to the central fireplace at the Alt. 840M Chalet, an experience you won’t find anywhere else. There are also two other fireplaces at Mont Sutton! Savor a gourmet meal in the company of a crackling fire at the Auberge des Appalaches where the atmosphere rivals any other ‘ski town’ in the world. Share a bite at the gorgeous Hôtel Horizon Bistro in the warmth of their fireplace.
A hot chocolate, please, but only the best
The secret is out – it’s at Chocolaterie Belge Muriel that you’ll find the perfect, tastiest, home-made hot chocolate prepared by the charming and passionate Norka. There’s nothing to add, it’s flawless as it is!
