“A short week in the Alps”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

We escapes for a short week away from Friday to Wednesday. It was a very easy transfer to the chalet and we were greeted warmly. The food in the chalet was excellent and the staff for always very helpful, especially Richie. I was slightly worried that having no children with us we would find it irritating having children around but actually we saw very little of them and those that we did see we're charming! Very easy to get to the Prodains express and we could ski straight back to the chalet. I would highly recommend this chalet two couples and families alike.

I am so so late with my reply so I really apologize but thank you so much for staying with us at Chilly Powder and I am so glad you had such a great stay with us. Even though as you say we are family friendly we also have adult only areas so that you can have your time as well

It's now the summer season so we are already getting prepared for next winter and thinking of new improvements for the chalets. See you next season we hope
Best wishes

Arrived back 3 weeks ago (25th January) from the wonderful Chilly Powder Au coin de feu. This is without a doubt the best ski holiday ever and we have been on quite a few. We cannot thank enough the fantastic, helpful, friendly staff who could not do enough for the guests. Ritchie the bar man was such a lovely, friendly person and made the effort to learn names and also what guests liked to drink. He kept the wine flowing during meal times and was happy to answer any questions or just have a little chat and show an interest. Nick, the chalet manager was extremely helpful and was quite happy to take time out from his work when our 3 year old boy went to 'bother' him. A big thanks to Francesca and Paul whose hospitality and day to day running of the chalet is second to none. Our little boy absolutely adored Lola and Lottie, the dogs, although I think they were a bit fed up of him following them round all week (Sorry about that!!!!). We stayed in the Indian room which was perfect for our needs with a separate area for our little boy to sleep in so we didn't disturb him and the view of the slopes was fantastic. You get used to the sloping roof and master the art of walking round the room whilst ducking down :-). The crèche attached to the chalet was superb. Katy and the team did a fantastic job and after initial tears on the first day, our little boy soon settled in and enjoyed spending his mornings there. The girls did lots of activities with the toddlers and even took them into town for a hot chocolate and a ride on the horse and cart. What can I say about the food???? Exceptional!!! Each evening, the courses did not disappoint. Very well presented, tasty food and plenty to go round. We never left the table feeling hungry or thirsty!!! Afternoon tea was a lovely touch with various sweet and savoury treats each day and the childrens meals consisted of delicious, hearty food which was eaten up without any fuss. The location of the chalet was perfect, 2 minutes walk to the cable car up to Avoriaz with no queues whatsoever and if we wanted to go into town, the bus stop was right outside with buses every 15 minutes or so. Could not have been more perfect. In addition to how perfect the chalet, location, staff, creche and food was, we also met some lovely people who we still keep in touch with and who are also not from the UK. What a wonderful week!!!!We will without a doubt be returning to Chilly Powder but just haven't decided whether it will be for Christmas or next January. Thank you so much to everyone who looked after us and making our ski holiday perfect and hassle free. See you all soon :-)

Just got back from a week at Chilly Powder and wanted to thank everyone at the chalet for a great holiday

Richie is without a doubt the friendliest, most helpful barman we've ever met. He made everyone feel so at home and helped us get to know each other with a photo chart. Richie you rock!

Katy and the nanny team were amazing and our little (nearly) 2 year old had such fun. I don't think you would find a better team anywhere - thanks girls!

Nic, Paul and Francesca and the rest of the team all looked after us very well and ensured we had a great week with amazing food.

The chalet is right on the slopes and only a 10 minute bus from the town.


We stayed in the Indian room which was perfect for us as the separate room for our son meant he could have peace and quiet while we got ready without disturbing him. You get used to the slanted ceiling (or just keep your helmet on after the slopes).

Despite being super child friendly I think the chalet is equally suitable for non parents as the kids go to bed and leave the grownups to dinner in the evening.

Room Tip: Indian room great if you want a separate room for little uns and great jacuzzi bath,

We've just returned from a wonderful stay with Chilly Powder in Morzine /Avoriaz. We thouroughly enjoyed the excellent food and wine. The service was exceptional and the atmosphere warm and friendly.
We'd love to return, perhaps with the little ones in tow next time!

Just returned from a great trip in Chilly Powder. Food great, chalet fantastic. Staff, most of whom have been there for several years, all in a different league to the usual seasonaires in their gap year. Don't expect 19-year olds who know less about skiing than your child, or a ski guide who learnt the resort in the opening fortnight of the season. Instead look forward to guys and girls who know the resort well, give great, honest advice, and can never go far enough to help.

Rich.

Room Tip: Not aware of any bad rooms.

Some would say we are addicted to skiing - certainly we've been on a fair few in our time. We like to try new places, but there's one place we always return to - and with good reason - Chilly Powder. We were there over New Year, and the feeling was of a house party with friends, despite the full house. Obviously it was great to see Paul, Francesca and Nick again (and of course Richie, the barman with the brilliant memory and obliging nature!) but it was more than that, it was the way everyone was made to feel at home - guests old and new. The New Years Eve party was fantastic - food excellent, wine flowing, and fireworks lighting up the sky (not to mention the dodgy fancy dress....!)
There have been some upgrades since we last visited - new carpet in our room (the Music room) and on the stairs, a wii in the bedroom (adding to the flat screen TV and DVD player), and blinds on the windows as well as curtains (not needed in the Winter, but ideal for the Summer) and smoked salmon every day for breakfast (my son couldn't believe his luck!)

The food this year was generally very good, though I'd have to agree with other reviewers who commented that the chefs were possibly still "settling into" their roles - but the early problems mentioned in the Christmas review were certainly resolved by the time we arrived the next week.

The new lift to Avoriaz was great -no queues even at peak times, and up the mountain in 4 minutes. The 5 minute uphill walk there was slightly less appreciated, but once the button lift is fully operational (which it should be by now) getting up there will be a piece of cake. As an added bonus, if you're tired or have little ones and don't fancy the home run, then a trip down on the gondola is easy, and you can ski, even as a beginner, from the bottom of the lift to the door.

We didn't use the childcare, but reports from others were positive, and the kids loved their Chilly Powder ski lessons - with all abilities catered for, from beginner to expert, in small groups (4 children per group)

If there was one thing they could improve upon? It's hard to find anything, but the toiletries in the rooms were lovely, but in tiny bottles. Personally I'd prefer a larger size (full size for a family for the week?) even if it was a little less posh. But that's hardly a major issue....

Will we be back? Oh yes - but it's booking up quickly....so get in there if you fancy it!

Thank you for your lovely review Sally and we've since added a shower screen into your bedroom this week so you can have a stand up shower in the bath - Sorry it was not here for you but factory delays - We do try and keep everything updated as much as possible and it's great that regular guests notice all the improvements. Hopefully it will be the spa area in 2015! Fingers crossed that the mayor says yes - Considering he ran over Lottie i'm hoping he'll feel too guilty to refuse! See you again maybe in the summer - Love to the boys!

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.
