The chalet was excellent and we had an enjoyable stay there, I can’t think of any main negatives. It’s a basic chalet facility but for the price and value for money it’s spot on.

The accommodation was good. When we went the chalet was not full so there was plenty of space. The staff were brilliant! And the hot tub was great.

Location - where is Chalet Alaska

Nearest piste under 2 minutes' walk (150m)

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Alaska description

A conveniently positioned chalet in the range in Tignes, the Alaska is within just two minutes walk of the piste. Put your skis on here, and you can ski straight down to the Chaudannes and Paquis 6-man high-speed chairlifts, giving you a choice of heading up either side of the ski area to start your ski-day. At the end of the day, you can then ski back to the same point for the shortest walk home.

Built into the hillside, the chalet is cleverly designed over several split levels, and offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere in its wood-panelled living areas with an attractive traditional stone fireplace.

The sauna and hot-tub on the terrace add further to the Alaska’s appeal as an excellent base for your Tignes holiday.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Alaska

Buffet breakfast with hot option and afternoon tea/coffee and cake . 4-course dinners including apéritif, choice of complimentary quality wines, coffee and chocolates

Piste Picnics

Our Chalet Hotels can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For skiers keen to keep their Euro-spending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!

Afternoon Tea

The traditional 'welcome home' after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff's one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.

Children's High Tea

In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children's tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.

Children's High Tea in Chalet Hotels

New for 2013/14 Season - Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge of £39 at the time of booking only

Dinner in Chalets

A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host - or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets - and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening.

Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Culinary Choice Dinners in Chalet Hotels

A special feature of our Chalet Hotels is a more extensive culinary experience for our guests. With the greater kitchen facilities of a hotel, our professional chefs are able to offer choices of menu at dinner, generally including lighter as well as more hearty options, and always a vegetarian choice for each course. Guests will be asked to choose their evening meals at breakfast for that evening from a varied daily selection.

Our Chalet Hotel adult-only dinners offer 5 courses, starting with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and a cheese selection to round off your meal in style. All this is then followed by coffee with chocolates to complete your evening's repast! Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets if you advise us in advance. Other special diets can generally be catered for at a cost of £35 per person per week. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared.

We update Chalet Alaska's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

Espace Killy ski area Fantastic après ski High altitude skiing

Tignes is somewhere you can ski longer, higher and further than most other resorts in the Alps. Owing its snow-reliability to the Grande Motte glacier, the local ski area is joined with Val d’Isere’s to form the mammoth Espace Killy - intermediates will have a whale of a time here. Choose between 5 different villages, whether your priority is convenience, cosiness or cheap accommodation. Tignes also has one of the most famous New Year parties in the Alps.

Tignes ski resort is one half of the stunning Espace Killy, one of the biggest linked ski areas in France. Because of its high-altitude terrain and access to the Grande Motte glacier, the resort is open both earlier and later in the season than many others and often the lifts are running for short periods of summer skiing. Predominantly purpose built, the resort itself is divided into 5 villages, each different in its own way but all well linked by lifts and bus services. The main area, currently being rebra...
With varied pistes at a high altitude, the ski area has impressive powdered terrain for skiers and boarders alike. Beginners can practice on the nursery slopes at Le Lac and Le Lavachet, where you'll find gentle, quiet runs that are accessible via free beginners' lifts. Le Bollin at Val Claret is another conveniently situated green and Grattalu is a lovely wide blue for those wanting to build confidence. Tignes is incredible if you ski at an intermediate level, with miles of powdery blue and red runs includi...
While it's said that those who appreciate Tignes do so for the serious skiing over the après ski, this doesn't do justice to the fact that Tignes' 60+ bars/pubs and 4 night clubs provide some of the best nightlife in the Alps. All villages have their fair share of places to eat and drink, and with a shuttle bus service running 24 hours, you can enjoy your evening without worrying about the journey back. Jam bar is small but with a great atmosphere and Loop bar pretty much offers it all: with live sport, world c...

"Everything you’d expect, very good value for money"

Adam Souness, Midlothian
5/ out of 5
The chalet was excellent and we had an enjoyable stay there, I can’t think of any main negatives. It’s a basic chalet facility but for the price and value for money it’s spot on. The room my sons had was a good size, I think I got the lesser room however for a 1 person room it was ideal. The location is good as you have the ability to get on the slopes quite quickly; you just walk down a path between two buildings for 50 yards, clip your skis on and ski all the way down to the lifts. You could plan the runs at night so you ended up there as well. The hire equipment shop is 100m from the chalet and they were brilliant, I took my skis back because they weren’t suiting me perfectly and the staff were more than happy to replace them. The food was most enjoyable and the atmosphere was excellent. WiFi is limited everywhere in France and in the chalet there was only one WiFi unit, so if you wanted anything you all had to sit around it! It was in the lounge area so this wasn’t really a problem.

"Accom good, staff brilliant, hot tub great – thanks for a good holiday!"

The accommodation was good. When we went the chalet was not full so there was plenty of space. The staff were brilliant! And the hot tub was great. The best thing for me was the altitude - a snow sure holiday with fresh snow all week was worth the transfer time and the skiable area is massive with the full area pass. Off piste is also excellent. Thanks for a good Holliday!

"For the price we paid, it was fantastic."

The chalet was quite nice, the location is a little bit off the beaten track but the hot tub was fantastic. It was the first week of the season and the staff were really up for helping out and keen to impress. Everything was very clean. It wasn’t the most roomy but how long are you in there for anyway... and there’s lots of room up on the mountains! The quality of the food was great, I wouldn’t argue if there was more of it but the staff did a good job. We had a twin room which was alright but it would have been nice to have a double. The good thing was that we had enough storage which you don’t always get in ski accommodation. Getting out and about was alright as long as the staff showed you where you could cut through, the way back in the evenings was more difficult as it was a little walk uphill.

"Welcoming staff, good food, brill location"

First impressions – everyone was very welcoming and there’s lots of room with everything being nice and clean. Food – the food was good and there was plenty of it, everything was presented nicely and it was very traditional. Rooms – we had 4 of the rooms and they were all different sizes. I wouldn’t recommend the ones in the attic for anyone tall; with the eaves there isn’t much room. The showers were all fine and we always had plenty of hot water. Rest of the chalet – the lounge area was good, the hot tub wasn’t particularly clean so we didn’t use it much but the sauna was nice. Location – it’s ski in, ski out which is brilliant, even though there wasn’t much snow (we were here in April) it was less than one minute to get to the ski slopes and you just get the lift back up. It’s fairly easy to get into town for the bars and restaurants.

"Beer on the sun terrace at end of awesome skiing!"

Excellent value from some of the friendliest and most attentive chalet hosts in the alps. It's hard to beat sunbathing on the terrace after a day in the incomparable Espace Killy. Ask the chalet girls and boys if you can pop your 12 pack of stubbies in the fridge - its the ultimate thing to come home to! SNO expert Top Tip: Remember to ask your hosts for to recommend a great local restaurant for dinner when they have their day off, and book your table at the start of the week (you don't want to be trying to get a table when half the chalets in Tignes empty for the weekly seasonaires' night off).
