Apres ski

My lovely DH has surprised me by booking a last minute skiing holiday at Christmas! I haven't been for many years and am completely out of touch with the dress code for dinner etc.

It's a nice looking 4 star hotel - don't want to dress down too much (I suspect no jeans) but don't want to look overdressed either.

Can anyone help? smile

which hotel/company?

I ski every year, normally stop in chalets but 2 years ago stopped in a swanky 4*/5* hotel and everyone still wore jeans for dinner. Apart from one lady who wore little black dresses and heels every night and stuck out like a sore thumb.

Hi Viva,

We're off to the Silberhorn in Wengen....would love to wear jeans each night if that was possible!

Never been there but have googled, Inghams go there and on their website it says dress code is casual. I'd put Inghams on a par with Mark Warner and people wear jeans in Mark Warner hotels for dinner. Think you'd be fine.

Agree that Inghams/Mark Warner/Esprit all similar type hols. We go to Esprit 5 star hotel and jeans or leggings and jumper dresses are my choice of apres ski wear.
