Stayed at the Chalet Dauphinelle in mid March. The Chalet is in good order and located within a minutes walk from the piste and the Red Fox pub, the food was great and our Chalet host Matt Emeny looked after us and nothing was too much trouble for him. Big thank you to all at Ski France who located and returned my snowboard bag as it decided to stay on in France to party a little longer without me.

I stayed with a group of 11 friends aged 28-38 at Chalet Dauphinelle in the Chalet Altitude Complex in the last week of March 2012.

Location: The chalet is part of a complex and is not a stand-alone building, as with the rest of the chalets here, it is located close to the piste with access above the Plein Sud, via a cat track/road piste, a perfectly acceptable four minute walk for intermediate skiers, with those wanting to avoid the narrow piste having to walk a further 2 minutes to the top of the voie lactee green run. Return skiing is much closer via an access from the Plein Sud piste, down a rather steep section. There is a pub, ski shop and supermarket all within 2 minutes walk, although you will find greater choice and value in the centre of town.

Chalet: The chalet was well maintained, the rooms are of average size and most could do with more wardrobe space to contain the vast amounts of kit you have as a skier/boarder. They were warm enough, and access to bathrooms/toilets was fine, even if some of them are a little cosy. The communal living area was a decent size and had an array of balcony options for gazing at the scenery from what is unquestionably a great vantage point on the resort/mountain. Particularly if you are a young group, be sure to grab a few beers at the Folie Douce at the top of the Plein Sud chair lift from around 3:30pm to 5:30pm, it plays a rousing house, dubstep and hip hop set every night, with an up-for-it glamorous crowd. It's a short ski/board back to the chalet for the inebriated revellers when the Folie finally kicks you out.

Hosting: The chalet was hosted by Ski France and their fantastic ambassador Lisa was a credit to the company; professional, flexible and with a great sense of humour, she effortlessly conversed with our group whilst preparing excellent evening meals and cakes, giving good advice on locations of interest and going the extra mile by collecting goods on our behalf when out on her daily errands. Of particular note was the quality/quantity of the breakfast, with a full cooked breakfast available every day, not simply a cold selection with one or two hot options. Lisa even made sandwiches out of the breakfast items for those who could not face breakfast before the coach trip back to the airport. Lisa was keen to interact with the group, but was not intrusive.

No company is perfect and Ski France is the same. We were disappointed that we were not offered a day or two ski guiding at least once by our representative in resort. The journey up and down the mountain via a locally sourced taxi firm was more hair-raising and nausea-inducing for some of the group than the week of skiing, and we had to wait for the (on-time) arrival of another flight before our coach journey could commence

We’d stay at Dauphinelle again, and we’d love to have Lisa as our host again, Ski France could use a little bit more polish to make them perfect but it could not take the shine off an excellent holiday. Bravo!

Room Tip: There are 2 double rooms, the remainder are twin, the noise does carry if you are closer to the lounge area.

Recently got back from a weeks stay at Chalet Altitude in Val Thorens and i must say it was one of the best holidays i've had! ski conditions were good, bars on and off the slopes were good and we were lucky enough to share the appartment with 10 others who all got like we'd known each other for years. Our Chalet host Matt not only prepared breakfast everyday but he made the best cakes and evening meals and even joined us for a laugh in the evening. what a great time thanks ski france and a big thank you to Matt Emeny who will be missed...

We stayed here Feb/Mar 2012 and I have to say it was the perfect week away for all 6 of us.
The Chalet Alititude complex itself is the highest in the resort so the veiws from our balcony were unspoilt with perfect veiws of the valley.
Our appartment was on the very top floor and could not have been better presented and layed out with a large communal area downstairs and all the bedrooms upstairs of which half were ensuite.
Our chalet host 'Ollie' was a great host and his cooking skills were excellent especially his cakes which were made fresh everyday.
As for ski in/ski out well thats not quite the case but its only a short walk down the street 100m to the top of the main street where you can strap on and get down to the main lifts.
The town is great for a night out especially the cafe snesco and the underground bar and Malaysia is a pretty cool club if your out on a late one.
If you like your dance music then ride up the lift to La Folie Douce which kicks off at about 2:30 till 5:30 everyday with some dirty electro from the DJ on the balcony and fills up to the brim with crazy teenages dancing on tables everyday and spraying champagne.
Put it this way we are definatley going back next year.
Perfect Snow... Perfect Food and a top night out...oh and loads of shops and indoor activities if the weathers poor or you want a day off.
Nice one Ollie...!!!!

Just got back from a week in Chalet Dauphinelle with Ski Fance and seriously feeling the blues. What a great trip! I agree with most of the comments in the other reviews (ski in ski out is a loose term but its really not that bad a walk, the bathrooms are a tight squeeze and some cushions on the sofa would have been nice). Really want to echo the comments about our lovely chalet host, Andy. What a great guy, and fantastic cook! The only ski trip I've come home from and thought I might need to go on a diet...

The Chalet is a 12 person chalet, and we were in a group of 4, joined by another couple and a group of 6. The living and dining space is pretty cosy, and we ate around one long table. I was pretty sceptical at first, but it did help the groups to gel pretty well and made for a more sociable chalet than many others that I have stayed in.

My only criticism of the chalet would probably the rubbish drainage and the unecessarily hot room temperatures at night.

Oh, and by the way, if you are staying this season be sure to make a few trips to the Red Fox. It would be rude not to when you have to pass it on the way back from the 'ski in' run and the chalet. They also have live music most nights but Greg Dylan (on a Wednesday night) comes highly recommended!
