Chalet Des Pistes

In the morning, you walk for a few seconds before stepping into your bindings to glide to the lift of your choice, probably the Funival, still the world's fastest lift, with new carriages this winter. At the end of the day, good skiers ski right back to the door, beginners stop where they started, thirty seconds' walk away.

A few hundred metres up the slopes are the sunny terraces of the Fruitiere and Trifollet, where a therapeutic drink or two to music, techno at the Fruitiere, everything but at the Trif, set one up nicely at the end of the day for the final schuss home to a hot bath.

The chalet is very comfortable and well appointed. The bedrooms are not huge, predictably, since the real estate they occupy must be some of the most desirable in the world, but they are well-built and tasteful, with underfloor heating, reasonable cupboards, good lighting and gorgeous bathrooms. Even the beds are bigger and firmer than usual in France. Each bedroom has a private ski locker in the ski room, with a very effective individual boot warmers.

Val d'Isère

Val d'Isère has access to the best all-around ski area in the world, the Espace Killy. With just over 100 lifts compared to the 300 to be found in the Trois Vallées, the Espace Killy is obviously not the largest ski area in the world, but size isn’t everything and this region has as much skiing as one could ever need, not to mention the longest winter in the Alps. (The winter ski season here begins in late November and continues until early May and conditions are seldom disappointing).

The main centre of Val d'Isère has been virtually rebuilt over the past 25 years and many of the buildings are imaginative contemporary interpretations of the traditional stone and Savoyard style wood structures.

Ski holidays to Val d'Isère were revolutionised with the introduction of après-ski in the 80s, when Dick Yates-Smith set up the seminal bar-nightclub known as Dicks Tea-Bar.
