Big Snow Forecast

All of the signs are that we are in for a BIG weekend of snow!!! So much negative publicity this week, and yet it can change within a day or so and the publicity becomes yesterday’s news!!

According to Jet2Ski’s weather update today –

A significant snow-bearing weather system (yeah, ok, a snowstorm) will push into The Alps from the North, starting later today (Thursday). The North and East (including Austria, most of Switzerland and the Northern French Alps) will see the snow fall heaviest and for longest, with light falls today and moderate further falls into the weekend.

In all areas, we currently expect the main event to be Friday. Accumulations of 20cm+ will be widespread across much of the Alpine area, with as much as 50cm over 3 or 4 days locally.

Once the snow passes (at the weekend), temperatures will drop significantly and the next week is going to be very cold in The Alps – so the fresh snow is going to stay in great form if you’re lucky enough to be out there!

I use a very good weather site that pulls many forecasts together and there is a huge spike for tomorrow and Saturday, measuring at least 4 times the size of the spike earlier this week! It then shows another fall in temperatures! see below:

It’s not too late to book with us to enjoy the fresh powder and quiet slopes. We are offering all weeks in January at just £499pp fully catered, including beer/wine, plus transfers are at a significantly reduced price of £29.00 return per person. Email us now to discuss



Is there really no snow in the alps part 2

So another series of articles hit the newsstand yesterday about the poor snow in the alps including Bloomberg and the Washington Post!! … and yet again I would challenge the articles as we have been out skiing around Chatel and Avoriaz without issue. Agreed, the full area isn’t quite open but more opened today including some of Super Chatel, Lac de Vonne links and Cret Beni in La Chapelle.

Trust us, we live here all year round and can say honestly that the pistes are lovely, the weather gloriously sunny and the forecast snowy conditions are very exciting for the coming days.

Here are some more skiing photos from today…


Great Review

A great review just received about this winter’s service.

Clients stayed with us 17th – 24th December 2016

” I’ve been going on ski chalet holidays since the mid 90s, and I can honestly say this was the best chalet I have stayed at. Accommodation : Spacious rooms , lots of storage space for all your gear, modern bathrooms with multijet power showers , abundant squashy sofas to snuggle up on at the end of the day; and a lovely jacuzzi to massage your aching limbs .

Ran by owners Matt and Emma, you can see the extra thought that has been put into making this chalet a home from home – little touches like the multi socket British extension leads , hairdryers , large quantities of toiletries in every bedroom.

Food and drink – I usually have to pay for my soft drinks / beer in chalets, while everyone else drinks the free wine ( I don’t drink wine as I suffer badly from wine flu ) – but not here – it’s all included . Great for the kids too, they loved the unlimited included soft drinks. Emma’s cakes and desserts were amazing , and Matt is a great cook.

Emily looked after us well in the mornings , being very flexible with breakfast times etc., and was generally very pleasant , helpful and happy throughout our stay . Matt also arranged our private transfers , ski hire ( it came to us – no nightmares in the ski hire shop this year ) and private snowboarding lessons for our kids with Martin at Torr , who was also brilliant .

The only downside is that any future chalet holiday is going to seem a bit poor in comparison .
I’m booking in for next year as soon as hubby tells me when he has got annual leave .

Brilliant place , we loved it , wish I had found it years ago”
