Just spent a very good week in the Hotel Etoile De Neige arranged through Crystal Ski. We were given room 503 with views up the mountain and the pistes. The room roof was very high as we were in the middle part of the hotel.
The room was quite large with a very spacious bathroom - though with a small shower enclosure and no bath.
Unfortunately we had noisy heating pipework which, as a previous reviewer mentioned, sounded like a distant pile driver working and lasted about 10 seconds every 30/40 minutes. However we always take ear plugs so slept reasonably well.
The breakfast buffet was fine for us with plenty of choice.
Evening meal had a salad bar, 2 pasta choices, soup, a meat/fish choice and choice of sweets.
Again, as another reviewer mentioned, the salad bar was not replenished but we were always ready to eat at 7:30pm so we managed very well.
Wine was served with the meal and more was available if requested.
Residents get 1 hour free Wi-Fi every day but you need to sit in the comfortable reception area to connect.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful.
It is a ski in hotel but going out there is a 50m walk to the Chamole 4 seat chair which gives access to the full resort.
We arrived on the 23rd Feb. and all our fellow residents were very nice people - every evening was spent just chatting and having some great laughs - oh and the occasional drink!
We enjoyed the skiing in Pila and there is certainly enough terrain to keep most intermediate skiers happy for a week.
We also spent a couple of afternoons going down to the town of Aosta on the gondola (included on your lift ticket) to view the Roman ruins, cathedral etc. Well worth a visit while you are in the area.
