An avalanche of Heidi-hi-kitsch props and vintage winter sports memorabilia on loan from the Ski Club of Great Britain just about buries the bare bones of this three-storey new-build dragged up by owners Hippo Inns as an off-piste alpine chalet. From a full-size 1950s cable car cabin suspended on high, survey the après-ski action below as the post-work Haus party heats up with Hot Toddies and vin chaud with cinnamon and orange.
From the cocktails, we enjoyed the likes of a Salted Caramel Old-Fashioned, while beer cravings were sated via Swiss 1936 Tank Bière, one of six draught brews. Food-wise, early risers can make the most of a full Bavarian and a croque monsieur at breakfast or brunch, while later in the day sees dishes such as onion soup or ham hock and cheese croquettes. For something more substantial, opt for chicken schnitzel Holstein, pasta or pizzas, while apple strudel or hot chocolate with Chantilly cream are on-hand to finish with. Post-meal, slalom down to a toasty basement bierkeller for further drinking, but beware of the pungent whiff of fondue.
