When I worked for Interactive Resorts, I mostly sold chalet holidays. Because the chalet holiday is such a British thing, this means chalets are almost exclusively found in the popular and famous resorts that British people have heard of with very few available in the smaller and more obscure corners of the Alps. As a result, during my time at IR I almost never sold holidays to these lesser known resorts.
My dad, however, is an avid geographer and lover of obscure places and so through him I have managed to gather quite a bit of random knowledge about some of the more Brit-free alpine destinations, and have even visited a fair few of them. It was a running joke in the office when I worked there that I had very niche resort knowledge, and if ever anyone called in with a random request they would inevitably be passed through to me, something I was infinitely proud of!
Over the next weeks and months on this blog I will be bringing you my take on the niche ski destinations of:
Pragelato Via Lattea
Klosters and Davos
Bourg St Maurice
St Martin de Belleville
Hopefully someone might find these as interesting as I do!
