This past weekend was the KPMG Suisse Romande Audit Practice ski weekend. Our social committee planned an incredible weekend for us with a full itinerary on Saturday. It was so fun!
We spent the weekend at the Swiss Chalet Montana, in a room with a view of the mountains – literally could wake up, look out the window and stare at the vista and even the Matterhorn off in the distance. It was not a fancy hotel, but the rooms were large for European standards, it came with breakfast, a self service bar, pool, Foosball, and the inn keeper even caravaned everyone to dinner on Saturday night so that we wouldn’t have to walk 20 minutes in the cold to get downtown.
Saturday morning everyone met at the ski station to pick up our tickets. Andrew and I skied a couple pistes with some co workers before, well … let’s just say they left me in the dust haha these people ski as if they literally came out of the womb on skis they are so good! I tried to keep up but I am just not good enough at skiing yet. So, we bid farewell and got in a couple hours of skiing by ourselves before stopping and meeting back up with everyone for lunch. The snow was awesome and the pistes were so fun. The resort is huge and we had a great time exploring a new ski area.
Lunch was a group affair at some tables reserved out on the terrace at Les Violettes. The weather on Saturday was mild, crystal clear and blue skies. It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
Dinner was an organized group meal at Restaurant La Désalpe, followed by drinks at The Constellation followed by going dancing at some basement club that miraculously I cannot remember the name of (wonder why that is …. 🙂 ) It was a really great time and fun to get to hang out with our colleagues outside of work. Crans Montana was a really nice resort and honestly had the best panoramic views of the Alps. Better than I ever imagined. We left Sunday morning exhausted but loved every minute.
