Apres ski- what to wear?

What do you wear when you have just come off the slopes ( nursery, in my case) do you dump the ski's at the hotel and wear your ski gear?? any advice would be very well received. And any advice on where to eat which wont break the bank, both in Chamonix and Les Houches which is where we are staying. ( Been to Chamonix twice, can only remember where McDonalds is, and a lovely patisserie across from a sports shop.?

Most people stay in their ski gear, that is why it is called Apres Ski!!

BUT no-one will shoot you if you want to change into jeans a clean jumper and some boots that are comfier than your ski boots......

If you are going to pass your accommodation on the way to a bar then I would certainly change into some more comfortable clothing.

The best bakery in Chamonix is Fleury on Rue Joseph Vallot: tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g187261-d316…

Over the last few days it was the only place in the valley where you could buy Hot Cross Buns - a real treat!

Yes, on both occasions we have been to Chamonix we went to this bakery, the open glazed fruit tarts were superb ( strawberry and blackcurrant) yummy. Will certainly be on the list this year for another visit. Do you know of any other reasonably priced eating places which wont break the bank?, other than McDonalds.?

There are lots of cheaper places to eat but 'breaking the bank' depends on how much money you have in there already. The cheapest places are Poco Loco and Pizza Paradiso.

If you can afford one nice meal then definitely go to Munchies.

Depends where you are going for your Apres ski, there are some places in Chamonix that are full of people in ski gear and have live music late afternoon.but other places where you're better off getting changed..lots of places to eat, Poco Loco as already mentioned is good, Le Gecko is a good family run place, MBC is also good value..

Also you can get way better burgers than McD! Belouga, Poco Loco, Midnight Express...
