We have just spent a week at Chalet Cascade in Courchevel 1650 (Moriond). And the Chalet is in an almost ideal location, it has obviously had a recent internal refit which makes it feel like a small personal chalet and its staff make it feel very welcoming.
The location is amazing, you are directly opposite the escalator that takes you up to the main 1650 Bubble Lift. The rooms are varied in their nice personal Chalet theme - the rooms at the front are twins or doubles, they are compact but have they have ample storage with balcony access and are in fact very comfortable considering the the amount of time you actually spend in them. The rooms facing the Valley are bigger, but similarly nice with that personal Chalet theme.
It has a very comfortable lounge on the 3rd floor, which served at the early evening meeting point.The dinning room was very nice with spectacular views across the Valley and 1550 some 100 metres below us.The food was amazing and just what we needed to keep us going through the day. (Ski Total may wish to consider providing pack lunches as a daily option as well, then it would be truly fantastic)
Equipment storage - Chalet Cascade has a heated ski and boot storage room. Have no fear about security of your skis or boots as the Chalet has a pin code security door.
The staff, although young, were very nice, polite, helpful and knowledgeable and we would like to THANK THEM for making our stay very special.
As for Courchevel-Moriond, it is the ideal location for all levels of skiers, good wide pistes and easily ski-able to Courchevel 1850.
Summary - Chalet Cascade is great value for money and we are considering returning in a couple of years to explore Courchevel and the 3 Valleys even more as the ski area is vast and very well sign posted and maintained. It is my hope that Ski Total continue to maintain this property and continue modernising it. Again the staff made the Holiday very special and we wish them well in the future and hopefully we'll see them in 2016.
PS - and a note for SKI Total - If Chalet had a few fewer but larger guest rooms and a Hot Tub then it would be a truly FANTASTIC facility.
Well Done Guys!!!!
