About Tim Ferguson
Tim is a BASI qualified snowboard instructor, a MIAS Mountain Bike trainer and assessor and a British Cycling Road Cycling Coach. In his words "I live for the mountains...summer & winter" Sara is a former elite athlete having competed for England on the track & as a Fell Runner. Sara now concentrates on beasting Tim up anything hilly! Cat is our daughter, currently aged 11 she is racing road bikes both on the road and the track (velodrome) and is planning to compete in the 2018 Megavalanche, whilst in the winter Cat slalom ski races. Having to forever wait for Mum & Dad, Cat has also turned to the dark side and has started to snowboard too. She is already annoying her Dad, better technique learnt in 3 days, although Dad is her instructor and therefore claims all the credit!!
Tim Ferguson purchased this Chalet in 2013
Why Tim Ferguson chose Viel-Alpe
We love skiing and cycling. Its the ALPS!!! In the winter Tim snowboards, Sara skis and Cat does both. In the summer Tim mountain bikes - both XC and downhilling. In July 2018 Tim won the masters category of the Megavalanche. Tim also road bikes, spending each summer 'Col Bagging' and trying to keep up with Sara. Sara sticks fervently to her road bike, but she is ferocious. Sara is the only person we know who is disappointed when she gets to the top of a steep & gnarly climb. Cat road bikes and mountain bikes. As a flat track racer, the hills are just for training purposes. Downhilling is fast becoming another of Cats passions though. The downhill trails in ADH are wicked. But added to this are an amazing array of other good fun stuff. As a family we to the via ferrata each summer, rock climb on the hundreds of bolted sport routes, white water raft, stand up paddle board, wind surf on the lake, swim gym and climb in the sports centre and ice skate in the summer on the outdoor rink.

This really was an great experience 👌🏻
We was here for tomorrowland winter festival, experience really was 5/5.
Chalet is really nice, view from the hot tub, BUT the really best thing was host/catering service!
Foods were really good, but hosts Abby&Paul were even better! It almost felt like they belong to our group after few days 😅�
And after meal they drive u to slopes.
I can only recommend this, have fun!

Third time visitor to this chalet
My third fantastic visit to Chalet Cornillon. New hosts this year Paul and Abi did a great job of looking after everyone and nothing was too much trouble. Definite recommendation
Thanks a million for your review, muchly appreciated.
Another amazing week
Another fantastic week at Mountain Chalet. This is my 3rd visit in 2 years, the place is amazing. Chalet is warm comfortable and with wholesome home cooked meals and knowledgeable welcoming hosts is the perfect base for your alpine adventure. The resort its self has something to offer for everyone from the powder hounds searching for off piste perfection to the easy greens and beginners slopes, this makes it perfect for large mixed ability groups. I will be back again and again...maybe even for a 3rd week late season this year....honestly its that good :)
Thanks a million for your review, muchly appreciated.
Fantastic chalet with views to die for!!
Another fantastic holiday in ADH, made forever better thanks to the team at mountain chalet. Paul & Abbie made us super welcome and kept us fed and watered with great tasting meals. Can’t wait to visit again.
Wicked. Glad your trip was a good one.
Excellent stay at Mountain Chalet
Perfect for our needs, great hosts, great location and excellent food.
The view from the hot tub is to die for and the welcome is as warm as the water.
The location gives you uninterrupted view of the mountains and a peaceful nights sleep but easy access to town centre.
Glad you had a superb trip. Looking forward to welcoming you back next season.
