Overview

About the property

1750M/Chalet with 2 bedrrooms and 1 bathrooms located on the slopes

Ski in/ski out. Located on a blue run the chalet gives direct access to all Les Crosets' lifts. In two lifts you find yourself in Avoriaz or Chatel. Come here and travel the Portes du Soleil with its 12 ski resorts linked together. www.portesdusoleil.com.

The chalet gets plenty of sun. You will find yourself above the world there in a cozy place while the center of Les Crosets village, its grocery shop and its ski/Mountain bike rental store is only 10mn hike away.

The chalet cannot be reached by foot in winter. There is a 10mn walk from the parking lot up a blue groomed slope. The second picture on this website shows the 10mn walk that needs to be done up a blue run from the parking lot (covered parking lot 30CHF for the full week) to get to the chalet.

Le chalet is composed of 3 levels. The top level is for rent.

It includes a small ski room. It also includes 2 bedrooms and one bathroom. The first bedroom has a queen bed. The second bedroom has 4 beds bunked 2 by 2 and a single bed.

Originally born in France, I completed a Master of Science in the USA. But let's speak first and foremost about the chalet. Skiing is my passion since the age of 4. And I can assure you one thing: this chalet is a marvelous place: a place out of time and civilization. If you love the great outdoors skiing or walking / Mountain Biking then you will fall in love with it.

In summer, hiking, walking, mountain biking, downhill mountain biking, tree climbing, Spa, rock-climbing, fishing, visiting farms and alpine cheese making facilities...

This place is in my heart and I wish to share it with other nature lovers.

I skied all over Europe, USA and Canada. There is nothing that is worth the Portes du Soleil. A huge environment, Franco-Suisse 12 resorts interconnected. 210 lifts. What a joy! One day in Champery the next in Avoriaz the next in Chatel, Morgins by the grand tour. Full of varied itineraries offered by this stunning resort.

In the summer: same thing. All lifts are open for mountain biking. Mountain biking is available for beginner up to professional riders. The resort was named best mountain biking resort in the world by the US publication 'Bike Magazine'. The world cup and the European cup are both organized here.

http://www.bikepark.ch/fr/piste/22/101-route-du-lait-champery.htm

You can hike, bike, climb, fish, go to the natural luxurious hot springs, play tennis, go to the pool, visit the altitude animal and cheese making farms.... All kinds of outdoor activities.

Luxury amenities on the slopes! Ski in / ski out! Your child has a stomach ache. Take a little break at the cottage. Nap an hour and you are back on skis. You're feeling hungry. Take a little break at the cottage. Someone has trouble waking up. Come back at 11:00 when he is ready. Snowstorm. A little break at the cottage to warm up and back on the skis when the sun is out!!

Cleaning at the end of the stay: 100 Euros.

Possibitity to provide bed linens (1 fitted sheet, one comforter cover and one towel per person for 20 Euros.

Renting a Snow cat:

On the first day, you can rent a Snow cat to carry all groceries + luggage + skis + the young children + seniors and all others who do not wish to walk up. The snow cat belongs to the ski resort and you have to call two days ahead to book it (phone number is +41 (0) 24 479 02 10). The snow cat is huge and can take 12 people and all the things mentioned above. It costs 50 CHF for the trip to the chalet. On the way down it is much easier and it is usually done on skis or by foot. However, you can rent a snow cat for the way down also!.

Otherwise be sure to bring your belongings in backpacks in order to facilitate the walk up to the chalet. Several roundtrips are to be expected. Allow 10 minutes for the ascent, a little less downhill.

Car parking:

Parking is covered (30CHF for the week per vehicle). It is located in the center of the resort. After parking, it takes 10 minutes walk on an easy blue groomed run uphill to reach the chalet.

Grocery shopping:

There is a grocery shop in the village of Les Crosets. It is located 15mn by foot from the chalet. It is also reachable by ski with a backpack. One can find everyday products (bread, milk, pasta, chocolate, yogurt ...). The vegetable and meat selection is limited.

There are several large supermarkets located 25 minutes by car in the valley (Monthey)

ESS:

The Swiss Ski School (ESS) is located at the parking lot 10 minutes walk from the cottage (1mn skiing). Individual and collective classes are available for children and adults for all levels of skiing.

Ski shops:

There are two ski shops for renting/purchasing ski equipment in the center of the ski resort, located 10/15mn walk from cottage

Incroyable chalet

Situation exceptionnelle pour séjour d'exception

  • 5 of 5

nos deux familles avec 6 enfants de 5 à 10 ans ont fortement apprécié le séjour aux chalets les lacs. Le charme du Ratrack du premier jour, les skis aux pieds le matin, la pause du midi, la piste de luge le soir ont conquis tous les participants. Le chalet est très confortable et très bien organisé pour le retour du ski. La station est dynamique, avec une école de ski de qualité, des animations en soirée avec ski de nuit et vin chaud! Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir l'année peochaine!

Idéal pour le ski en famille ou entre amis

  • 5 of 5

Un chalet très confortable situé sur les pistes dans une charmante station à l'échelle humaine; bien agencé pour le ski départ et retour chalet; toutes les informations données ce sont révélées exactes; arrivée et départ en ratrack indispensables avec les bagages et la nourriture mais finalement très amusants

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup pour ce commentaire. La station est en effet à échelle humaine. En même temps elle est directement au coeur du plus grand domaine skiable du monde (>200 remontées toutes reliées entre elles). En ce qui concerne le ratrack, il est vrai qu'il est très pratique en début de séjour a l'arrivée, surtout avec des enfants; car sinon il faut prévoir plusieurs allez-retour avec des bagages lourds, ce qui est sportif :) mais faisable. Je le fais chaque année. Un grand ratrack de la station est facilement réservé avec un coup de téléphone pour 50CHF par parcours et monte toutes les affaires d'un coup. Pour le retour, les bagages peuvent beaucoup plus facilement être descendus a ski.
