The Evolution of the Chalet

Before they were known for luxurious ski vacations, a chalet was historically a type of alpine building or house in the mountainous regions of Europe. Their purpose was to store milk and butter in Switzerland and French Savoy during summer months. In fact, the word ‘Chalet’ in Latin means ‘Shelter’ or ‘Hut of a herder.’

We’ve combined the historical aspects of food storage and the luxurious connotations of après ski to create a one-of-a-kind “Chocolate Chalet.” Now you can visit the terrace of Kingbird to enjoy an extensive collection of sweets and warm beverages from our 2018 Chalet Menu.
