There are ski lifts only a short walk from the chalet as well as an excellent bus service that accesses the other lifts in the Portes du Soleil region.
The Ski lifts are also open during July and August when the mountains can be enjoyed on foot or by mountain bike, or alternatively from the comfort of the terrace of a mountain restaurant, while sampling a glass of the local wine.
