A fantastic place to take the children skiing, all their needs were taken care of and nobody wanted to leave, in fact most rebooked for the following year. The children were able to ski from the door or play in the snow just off the deck. The children who were not able to ski were driven to lessons, whilst others had the instructors meet them at the chalet.
Our room (Dahu) was lovely with a huge walk in shower, amazing views and plenty of storage for all the gear. Chalet Panoramic is a very comfortably luxurious ski chalet, equal to VIP ski standards at Ski esprit prices. It's not a five star hotel with superking beds, walk-in wardrobes and spa baths, but it is a super lovely place to stay with incredibly lovely staff who are always going out of their way to help.
The picturesque walk to the the top end of town is a very easy 5 mins, giving you easy access to shops and restaurants for lunch. This is especially handy for those travelling with non skiers or young children.
We booked childcare from 9-4 on some days and 9-1 on others. Judy the nanny was fab and encouraged all the kids to play games together both inside and out.
Highlights of the week were the Wednesday night fireworks and ski show which you can see from chalet and the Thursday night moonlight sledging from chalet deck.
Food was excellent.
Thanks for a great week
