Ok, first the downside, the hotel was last refurbished just after the Treaty of Versailles was being signed off in 1918 & a few years before the Great Depression in the late 1920's, however, on reflection, that probably adds to the holiday. after all, you do not go skiing to stare at the ceiling in your bedroom, which is just as well in the case of Hotel Christina!
Ski in ski out, food in the evening that would shame to a lot of over priced £25 per head bistro's in the UK, as much wine as you could wish for, & staff that were very attentive.
Its noisy outside at night, but hey ho, you should not be going here to chillax, this is a full on resort, & the bar down below the hotel is perfect for swapping stories of the days exploits, which tend to get more daring by the hour, helped by the Génépi shots.
It is a shame that the French have put a stop to ski hosting, (at least for now), as this was something that would have helped make the experience that much better for some of our group, but that is not down to the hotel, & hopefully the European courts will overturn a decision that is clearly anti competitive behaviour thinly velied as a health & safety issue.
In summary, if you want a ski holiday that will not challenge your pocket whilst you can feast in quality food, & hit the slopes within a minute of grabbling your ski's from the locker room, then it does not get much better than this.
One final point, two members of staff stood out, the chef, (whose name escapes me), & Megan, who provided the front of house energy that was the icing on the cake.
