"We found Pete and Pat to be delightful hosts, they were informative on ski runs for our sons and impressed us with their friendly and welcoming manner and the timings, presentation and quality of the food they prepared surpassed our expectations. They accommodated our Grandson's nut allergy without any issue and I particularly liked the ginger and pear crumble and pea and mint soup. They've been made several times at home since our return!" (Arlene Green, Chalet Lievre Blanc, May 2019)

"Interaction was great and was good to meet you when we were there - always good to meet the owners face to face and that differentiates you from the big companies. Loved the chalet and the location and the hot tub and massages. Really loved it so thank you and for your help with ski transfers." (Rosemary Ryan, Chalet Lievre Blanc, April 2019)

"Thank you again for a wonderful stay at Chalet Barthelemy with Wendy & Rick; who were awesome. We had a wonderful time & they were the most incredible chalet hosts – we all loved them. The food was delicious & the dinner time of 6.30pm (an hour earlier than normal) was very much appreciated." (Paul Rogger, Chalet Barthelemy, May 2019)

"Had another great week in Chalet Chanterelle in January this year; my sixth time with Ski Hiver and fourth time at Chanterelle. Rob's cooking and hosting was first class and this has been the case with the staff on each of my trips.  The reason I continue to return with Ski Hiver is simply because I like it; the chalets, staff and the catering. There are none of the nonsense claims that many companies make regarding the 'luxuries' of their decidedly standard chalets. Accommodating single travellers during quiet weeks at a sensible price is another benefit. Ski Hiver provides an excellent product at a fair price. For me nothing needs changing." (David Graham, Chalet Chanterelle, May 2019)

"We stayed at chalet Lievre Blanc La Plagne 2-9th February. Prior to arrival we were a bit nervous due to the transfer of ownership, however we were rest assured and in constant contact. On arrival our chalet hosts were amazing, my brother got stuck in the final bend into the village and our chalet hosts come along to pick him up and collect the car the next day, we had a late arrival and a hot meal was waiting for us. The chalet itself was amazing, the layout was perfect for our family, but our chalet host Pat and Pete made it a homely welcome each day, food plentiful and delicious. I would recommend ski Hiver and return again" (Kerry Toombs, Chalet Lievre Blanc, April 2019)

"We cannot praise your Chalet Chanterelle highly enough. Booking our stay and the changes we requested were made very smoothly. Your staff were welcoming and friendly as was the chalet atmosphere. Warm cosy, clean and comfortable, we were very impressed. The food was great and much appreciated after a long drive. The Chalet location is ideal and free parking too. Having enjoyed our stay so much we will most definitely be back. We can hand on heart highly recommend Chalet Chanterelle. Thanks Guys, in particular thanks to Chris who is a star." (Beverley Johns, Chalet Chanterelle,15 March 2019)

"We would like to say our stay with you last week was excellent. The hosts were lovely and really great cooks, they made us feel relaxed and at home. We transferred from Genève with Mountain Rescue who also gave a brilliant service. I would definitely recommend both you and them to friends travelling in the area in the future. In fact, I met an old colleague at Geneva airport and gave her your company name as they ski every year in that area. We wish you all the best with your company for the future and sure it will go well." (Sue Collinge, Chalet Lievre Blanc, 4th Feb 2019)

"We have just returned from a stay in Chalet Hermine our hosts were Cat and Clive. It was our first experience of staying in a catered chalet and it was truly fabulous we had such an amazing time. We had welcome drinks with our hosts on the first evening and Cat asked us all our names, the following morning she greeted us all individually at breakfast considering there was 11 of us I was really impressed!!

The food was amazing and perfect after a full day of skiing, especially the lamb tagine this was awesome! Cat and Clive could not do enough to help and made us feel so welcome. I would definitely use this chalet again and would recommend your chalets, the location could not have been better and having such great hosts just made the experience really special." (Jo Martin, Chalet Hermine, 24 Jan 2019)

"Everything was perfect, the chalet, location, and communication. Pete and pat were absolutely fantastic hosts and the food was amazing." (Jeanette Panayi, Chalet Hermine Blanc, Jan 2019)

"Many thanks for a very enjoyable stay last week in Chalet Barthelemy. We both had an excellent Christmas. The chalet was as great as we remembered and the food was excellent in both taste and presentation and could not be faulted. Please pass on our feedback and thanks to Mike and Keisha". (Richard Dunstan, Chalet Barthelemy, 4th Jan 19)

 

We had an incredible stay at Chalet Hermine.  Cat and Clive were absolutely wonderful.

We have recently returned from a wonderful holiday La Plagne 1800.

Lou exceeded all expectations in every way. Her hospitality and cuisine was outstanding. The welcome we received after a 9hr transfer immediately put us at ease ready to start our holiday.

The advise was invaluable, encouragement/entertainment with the kids great and meals simply scrumptious.

We look forward to returning in the future.

Amazing holiday - Lou cooked up a storm every night!  The Chalet had everything we required.  Great peaceful location, only a short stroll to the slopes or Apres ski.

Andy 2017 chalet chanterelle

 

We had a great holiday at Chalet Hermine and sorry I haven’t been in touch sooner, but just back into work today. We will be submitting a review on trip advisor as well along with a few photos. For your feedback we had no issues at all during our holiday even though the Chalet is brand new and it was the first week of operation. Chalet Hermine was perfect and obviously location could not be better situated beside the gondola (we were also able to ski straight back to the Chalet door each day) and the oudoor sauna was a really nice feature. Cat and Clive looked after us really well during our stay and could not have done anymore for us, the food was delicious. Scoring as follows.

Chalet – 5

Location - 5

Staff – 5 (Extremely Friendly)

Food – 5

Thanks again for arranging our trip, we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Montchavin and would have no hesitation in recommending Ski Hiver and Chalet Herminine.

Alan roper 2017

Many thanks for a great week at Chalet Barthelemey.

After many years of experiencing catered chalet holidays, I have to say Roxy and Michal were just "the tops". They are the best ambassadors you could ever want for Ski Hiver.

Cheers once again,

Andy Ince  2017

Let Me say on behalf of my group your chalet was" marvellous."  As for  Dan ! what a guy " A  first class chef" He is a keeper .

We had a great time in your chalet . Dan was a great host willing to participate in conversation and pass on valuable 1st hand information about the resort  weather etc  with all guests , at the same time  invisible if you take my meaning.

Dan has culinary skills worthy of any of the 1st class restaurants we have visited.

Thank for a great time.

We were very happy with the Chalet - it is a great size for a large group and all the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The living area on the first floor was great and we really enjoyed the fire! Your chalet hosts were friendly and helpful. The food was tasty and wholesome justine ivory

Thanks for a great week, Steph and John were fantastic, excellent food and good company. Best wishes

Sharon, Chalet chanterelle - 2013

Thank you for a most enjoyable week.
The accommodation was better than expected and your hosts were most gracious
I just wish, in retrospect that  we had not even considered the self catering option.
Andy and Lou were welcoming, warm, obliging, knowledgeable, competent and surprisingly good chefs.
I wish you all the best and thank you for a job well done.
All our expectations were met and exceeded.

Alf Benjamin, Chalet Dolomite

I can’t agree more with Alf’s sentiment. Lou and Andy were the best anyone could hope for.

Regards,
Ricky Murray, Chalet Dolomite - 2013 

Just wanted to pass on the thanks from my group for the trip we had back in January
John & Kate were superb hosts,  the food was easily the best we’ve had on a ski trip anywhere

Chris Gould 2011  Chalet Quanik

Mel, Colin,

Thanks for a great week – your organisation was faultless with ski passes and lessons available as promised on arrival, the ski hire was so convenient being run “in house” and the quality met everyones requirements. Transfers were the easiest I have experienced in 30 years of skiing

Richard Abbott 2011  Chalet Barthelemy

Just a short note to say thanks. We had a great ski holiday
We will let our friends know about you

Mike Warren L’Oree des cimes 2011

Please also pass on our thanks to Kate and Jon, who provided the best food I have experienced in a chalet holiday.
Hope we can do it again one day.
Just to echo what Richard has said, and please pass our thanks on to Kate and John.

Rob shepeard & Richard yates 2011 Chalet Quanik

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and to Emily and Zoe. We had such a fabulous week and the girls were great. 
The food was lovely, so good I would infact love to have the recipe for the Chicken Tagine if you don’t mind emailing it to me! In fact I would have all the recipes!

 Joanna Head 2011 Chalet Barthelemy

Hi Mel and Colin

Just wanted to say on behalf of all of us thank you for a wonderful week at Chalet Nancroix. We had the best holiday which was really relaxing and very much needed. 
A special thanks to Mel for the wonderful food.  We are all missing our home made cakes and amazing evening meals.

Hazel Marsh 2011 Chalet Nancroix

Just wanted to say thank you very much on behalf of all our party for a brilliant week’s holiday. The chalet was lovely, the food superb and our chalet girls, Emily and Zoe, absolutely excellent. You even managed to organise amazing weather for us. I would definitely consider booking with you again.
