At Courchevel 1850, a ski resort popular with royals and Russian oligarchs, everyone's hungry for luxury. Which explains why so many top chefs have recently opened outposts there, including three Paris legends. In a dining room decorated with Saint-Louis crystal chandeliers and silk drapings—an homage to fashion-crazed Austrian Empress Sisi of Bavaria—Pierre Gagnaire's new restaurant in Hôtel de Charme Les Airelles serves haute dishes like cream of crab soup with high-mountain honey. Skiers can eat Alpine tapas from Yannick Alléno, like ham-and-Gruyère tarts, at hotel Cheval Blanc on a terrace overlooking the ski lifts. And at his new chalet-style restaurant La Table du Lana, Guy Martin re-creates his beloved truffled veal from Le Grand Véfour in Paris
