The staff and the food were next level! So friendly and just delicious, DELICIOUS! 3 course meals every night. Loved the ski area too, terrain for everyone. Thanks legends!
We stayed at Chalet Algonquin for the New Year week and couldn't have had a better time!
The chalet is charming, warm and cosy, with lots of character, comfy beds and sofas and spacious dining and living room area with a nice fire.
Russ and his team were so welcoming and helpful. Russ made the booking process simple. When we arrived we were greeted by the team. Hayley was our super friendly and helpful host, looking after us all so well. Adam drove us to the slopes every morning, picked us up at the end of the day, always helped with the equipment and supplied the Aussie humour. And then there is Charlotte the Chef. Charlotte cooked the most wonderful dinners and breakfasts for the whole stay. The food was excellent - super tasty and big portions, perfect after a days skiing.
Don't be put off that the chalet is not ski-in ski-out, Adam makes the 5 min drive to and from the slopes easy.
The skiing area is huge and varied with lots of easy, intermediate and more challenging options. We were lucky enough to have a powder day which was great fun.
We thoroughly recommend staying here for a skiing holiday and would love to come back.
Our family (4 adults and 4 children (6 and under)) stayed at Chalet Algonquin enjoyed a wonderful vacation at Russell's White Stripe Mountain Lodge. Our hosts could not have been kinder or more accommodating. Chef Charlotte's food was wonderful. She kindly accommodated the children's needs and delighted us with "grown up" delicacies. Our chalet host, Hayley was also a delight. We will definitely return again. Thanks so much for a great week!
We stayed overnight on a mountain biking holiday, the accommodation was spacious and clean, the food was excellent plus Russ and Charlotte were great hosts. Thanks
We have just arrived back from a fantastic weeks skiing, staying in Chalet Algonquin. This is the second holiday we have had with Russ and Lucy, and the talented chef, Charlotte. The food was outstanding as usual and we were made to feel at home as soon as we arrived. Hayley and Adam were our hosts, both doing a fantastic job of looking after us, and taking us to the slopes in the morning, and collecting us in the afternoon.
I cannot say enough positive things about them all, everything was just perfect. The food that is produced is just out of this world. We will definitely return again.
It was one of the best week's skiing I have had. The chalet was in a great condition and I loved the viewing area and spacious lounge area. Both Charlotte and Haley were the best hosts I have had on a ski holiday, the food and service they provided was top notch (even got a very nice Birthday cake!). Adam was a great driver, he was never late and was a great laugh. My only concern going into the holiday was the location being so low down however being driven every day was amazing and being so close to the Vanoise express was really handy as you could decide at Breakfast which resort we were going to!
Only recommendation would be for a wardrobe in the room for more hanging up space.
We stayed here for Christmas 2016 with my older parents and had a fantastic holiday. The chalet is beautiful and warm and the bedrooms are spacious with ensuite bathrooms with underfloor heating. We cannot fault the whole experience.We were looked after wonderfully by Charlotte ,Hayley and Adam. Charlotte is a fantasic cook and gave us delicious food every night.She was also great at adapting to special diets as we had a few requirements. She was very ably assisted by Hayley who keeps the chalet in immaculate condition. Then Adam took us to the lift of choice everyday and also collected us .He loaded the skis and poles every morning and this was better than being right on the slopes as we had no walking to do in our ski boots. Russ was great at communication before the holiday and arranging everything that we needed. You have a very special team here Russ and I can totally recommend this company and can't wait to return.
