“Fantastic ski chalet for families with young children”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

This was our first trip abroad with our baby and we were apprehensive to say the least. But Chilly Powder is a fantastic set-up for families with young kids, with an on site crèche and service that is totally geared towards making the experience as simple as possible as far as the kids are concerned. It is located a few hundred yards from the main gondola up to Avoriaz and you can ski right to the back door which couldn't have been better. We stayed in the smaller chalet alongside the main hotel which is new to the group this year and were extremely comfortable. The food is also excellent and probably the best we have experienced from a ski chalet. We hope to return next year.

I just had an impromptu ski weekend and was lucky enough to find the Chilly Powder. A couple of work colleges and I stayed there and we had a fantastic experience. Nick tended to our every need. He set us up with lift tickets, ski equipment, dinner reservations, the works.

This place is definately geared toward families, but they have a kid free zone that is very nice.

The location is perfect for quick access to great skiing, also only 10 minutes or so out of Morzine.

I have returned recently from a Ski holiday at Chilli Powder. My wife, 3 children and myself have skiied at multiple destinations and I have to admit that we have finally found the best skiing holiday available in the Portes des Soleil. The staff are attentive and professional, the food exceptional and the creche is second to none. If you want the best ski holiday that you can experience I would have no hesitation in recommending Chilli Powder. I have already booked for next season. I must also mention that being able to ski all the way back to the chalet at the end of the day's skiing tops off the holiday.

Just came back from a week at Chilly Powder early March with the three kids (6, 4 and 2). A long flight was made easier with an efficient pick up and short trip from geneva airport (1 hr or so) onto the chalet. With about 10 families and 18 kids the week we were there this place really was up to scratch. It doesn't matter how much money you throw at a holiday, managing the chaos of 18 kids and still making the mums and dads feel like they have had a holiday takes some beating. Somehow they pull it off though! Kids feeding time (a bit like the zoo) is good food, very efficient and just enough to keep them focused. Then by 7.30pm the place is back to normal, relaxing time for the parents and dinner then starts for the next couple of hours. Loads of place to roam, the chalet very cleverly hides a lot of stuff with some great family rooms (we had the Music room) and a very professional creche/nursery in the ground floor. Every day we said goodbye to our 6 and 4 year old and they went off to tailored ski school for the morning / lunch and then creche/activities in the afternoon. Our youngest was happy t spend the week in nursery if we took him out for some snow time in the morning after breakfast so he felt part of the action! We haven't spent this much time together on holiday for a long time. The ski area is great, you can ski home to chalet and the place just works really well. Very likely we will be back next year...

Room Tip: The family rooms are very good if you have more than say 2 kids.

Thank you very much for the lovely review- 18 children is always a challenge but loads of fun for them all too. Instant friends means happy children!
Lots of snow has fallen this week so it's going to be a long but fantastic winter

Stayed with a group of mixed ages, mixed skiing abilities and mixed diet requirements. The chalet staff and chef just couldn't do enough to help on all fronts.

Organisation was thorough, location very close to Gondola and Chair but not noisy, chalet staff were truly excellent and handled everything in a manner beyond their years, very good value. I will book Chalet des Amis again.

You are so so welcome! Thank you for writing us such a lovely review. The nannies have patience of saints and even produce great tasting cookies in the creche - may be it's the fingers and special ingredients of all the little ones! Thank you for staying with us and see you again very soon xx

Outstanding is what I would say. This was our first visit and I was so impressed by the staff who were so welcoming and nothing seemed too much of a bother for them. My daughter attended the creche each day and absolutely loved it. The creche staff made it so fun with outings to Morzine to go on bubble lift rides, poney trip rides and tobogganing races. along with baking cookies and painting etc..

The food was outstaning with a fabulous array of choices for breakfast and dinner was always delicious. Francesca and her team were GREAT. Thank you!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Chilly Powder is a hotel but with the personal touches of a chalet. We have been operating ski chalet holidays of excellence since 1995. The genuine ski to the door location of our 3 luxury catered chalets with unrivalled in-house childcare facilities sets us apart from other ski chalets in Morzine.The pistes from Morzine Avoriaz descend straight into the garden and the main cable car opposite the chalet takes you to the heart of the Morzine Avoriaz skiing with the best access to the vast Portes du Soleil ski area. There are well over a hundred catered chalets in Morzine but only a handful can boast ski to the door locations. With all en-suite bedrooms, outdoor Jacuzzi, sauna, massage and in-house childcare in our crèche, the chalet is absolutely unique in Morzine for small or large groups or families with children or babies. The truly excellent cuisine, friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere of the chalet make it the perfect holiday destination and for our many returning guests it is considered a real home from home. ... more   less
