We know that things will be a little different in resort this season. Busy bars will be replaced by socially distanced restaurants. Large venues offering live entertainment will be replaced by small performances from somewhere much more private. Après-ski can be a big part of many luxury ski holidays, and we know that it will feel strange to miss out on it this year. That's why we have put together our list of alternative après-ski activities this winter, which can be enjoyed from the comfort of your chalet.
Al Jones – Singer and Guitarist
Hailing from the west of England, Al Jones (http://www.albertjones.co.uk/) is a singer and guitarist who specialises in a mixture of modern pop, folk, classic blues and soul music. Al now lives in the French Alps and spends his days touring around Europe. As Albert Jones, his alter ego, he has had success composing his own songs, featuring on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and across national radio in Brazil. A private concert in your chalet with Al would make for an excellent evening of live entertainment for you and your party.
