A luxurious trip...
Restaurant owner Donna Lennard and her husband Luca Boniciolli will lead guests on aworld-class, one-of-a-kind ski trip, paired with il Buco's acclaimed cuisine and outstanding wines
Guests are invited to stay in one of the resort's luxurious ski chalets where rustic Italian fare will be prepared by il Buco's Chef Joel Hough and il Buco Alimentari & Vineria Chef Justin Smillie.
Wine pairings and tastings will be led by Wine Director Roberto Paris.
Boniciolli, a world-class skier, will lead ski excursions through the Trois Vallées of Courchevel
How it works
Guests can form their own group of 8 to 12 people at a date of their choosing
or join a group of other il Buco aficionados to fill a chalet. Three different levels of chalet
are available ranging from 50,000 - 150,000 euros/week, depending on the class of chalet
and the dates. This price includes room and board for the week for the entire group.
The trip will be highly personalized and tailored to guest preferences. A typical day
might include a late morning ski with Luca and lunch in a Michelin-starred restaurant
tucked into the slopes. Or guests might opt for a day without skiing, waking up to breakfast
from il Buco's chef, indulging in morning yoga, and shopping in the bustling village of Courchevel. Guests might spend a day with Luca exploring one of the many surrounding valleys that begin just outside their door or take a helicopter to Chamonix to ski the Vallée Blanche.
In the evenings, guests can choose to indulge in a wine tasting with il Buco's Wine Director or
enjoy an aperitif in one of the many chic après-ski destinations in Courchevel. Afterwards, they
might come home to a massage and sauna before an early cocktail hour, while il Buco's chef
prepares a grand meal of the freshest, local ingredients paired with outstanding wines. After a
cozy dinner around the fireplace, guests could choose to go into town to visit one of Courchevel's
famous nightspots - or call it a night. In-house cooking lessons and private wine tastings will
also be available to guests in the comfort of their chalet.
