Just back yesterday with after a week stay with SkiWorld.
Location is fantastic, and yes it is truelly a ski in and out chalet. As one of our party did that from the doorway one day last week, after a fantastic dump of snow.
Yes as with other reviews, rooms are a little small, though your only in them to sleep so no problem. The lounge/dining room/bar are large enough, even when we had total white out when most runs and lifts were shut and most guests stayed in. Bathrooms/Showers are good size and plenty of hot water and pressure. Ventilation maybe something that needs updating, though this does not effect on the chalet. Hot tub and Sauna was used everyday by the guests. Running machine in the gym was the only piece of equipment not working, though after a full days skiing who needs it hey.
Foooooooood..... well where do i start, fantastic, hot, tasty, varied, on time, loads of it, to the point that on the last night gala meal, we all put back on the weight that we had lost over the week. God it was good. 11 out of 10 to the chef's.
The chef's were not the only ones getting 11 out of 10, the resort rep, chalet manager, chalet staff and bar staff were all very friendly, cheerful, welcoming and would do anything to try and help.
Cheers guys for an excellent week. Shame it had to end.
