Check whether Zinal is the right resort for your skiing abilities. Great for off piste adventures but limited piste skiing if snow conditions poor.

This spacious, well appointed chalet in the middle of Thyon Les Collons is perfect for a large group. The bedrooms are of a good size with plenty of storage space and the beds are comfortable. The plumbing is plentiful - 4 shower rooms and a sauna to take away the pain of a hard day on the slopes. The kitchen has plenty of appliances and it is well stocked with pots, pans and utensils for making meals for large Not only is it clean and functional for up to 12 people , the chalet also breathes an ambiance of well being inside and to the outside, it has breathtaking views down the valleys of Herens and the Rhone and up on the impressive heights of the snow covered Alps. The nearest ski lift which connects to the massive ski system of the Quatre Valées reaching up to Mont Fort above Verbier at 3328 mts is within walking distance or there is a regular shuttle service. For those who would not like to go to such lengths or heights as Mon Fort, there is plenty of skiing and courses at all levels on the Thyon and Veysonnaz pistes. For non-skiers there are several walking trails which are not too testing and offer superb views, a small skating rink and dog sleigh rides. The village of Les Collons is a quiet, family resort. There are no discos or nightclubs but there are several shops, bars and restaurants and a well supplied but small supermarket. After our third year's stay in the Chalet Etoile Polaire and 6 visits to Thyon, we highly recommend both the chalet and the resort.
