4) The Pre-Resort Supermarket Stop Is Glorious
You’ve crossed the channel, had a short sleep and been disappointed by a mediocre croissant. Now it’s time to stop at the supermarket and load up before your final ascent…
This pit-stop will tell you everything you need to know about the people you’re travelling with. There are the ‘just there to ski’ folk buying up food, the bulk of the travellers going for a mix of beer, wine and pasta, and the one group wheeling around a trolly overloaded with godforsaken 80 cent wine.
These are the people who will not be on the first lift, but will need lifted home first when the après gets going.
