After 15 years of boarding, going to Chamonix with Inghams with our party of 10 knocked the socks of any other. The staff where so pleasant and kept our rooms spotless with little extras such as leaving kind words of wisdom on their cards everyday in our rooms, and a postcard with Easter eggs left on our pillows. Such a nice little touch. The staff where absolutely faultless. The hotel was a little tired in the old parts, but was not a problem as everything else more then made up for it. At the cost of £480.00 catered with the best food I have ever tasted, friendliest staff accommodating to our every whim. Even put on buses to ferry guests to the lifts and into town. We were unlucky with the lack of riding due to lift owners shutting areas that need not have shut, but the trip put on to Courmayer more than made up for it. The resort was empty, so we had most the mountain to ourselves. Then it snowed. I had the best riding I have ever had and found myself legging it to the lifts for another run. To top it all, we where lucky to witness an avalanche off the glacier, have blue skies and 24 degree sunshine all week, exciting runs on the luge and unforgettable experience on the water chute. Inghams made all of us very happy bunnies and made the holiday very memorable. Well worth a look at the amazing Glaciers.
