There's something about a royal visit from the parents for focussing the mind on the finer things in resort.

Either way it has you dredging the dusty reaches of your mind for the friendliest bars (many), best value restaurants (few), gentlest green runs (fleetingly schussed across), and most interesting non ski related activities (errrrm).
