Location - where is Chalet Caribou

Save all your energy for the pistes, because everything else in the multi-award winning resort of Val Thorens is a breeze. The 2,300 metre high resort is a true all-rounder. Its scenery is spectacular. Its après ski, fantastic, and it’s skiing convenience is hard to beat. Nowhere in Val Thorens is far from anything, and Chalet Caribou is no exception.

Chalet Caribou is located in a quiet part of Val Thorens in the Chalet des Neiges residence, one of the highest residences in the French Alps. You can ski back to within 200m of the Chalet Des Neiges residence, and ski from 300m.

The apartment is positioned on the second floor of Chalet B in the Des Neiges Residence. Access to the chalet from the reception is via an elevator to level three, a short walk via an external stairwell brings you to the entrance of Chalet B. The swimming pool and sauna are on this level, and Chalet Caribou is on the second floor above, accessible by stairwell.

Perfectly positioned close to the slopes, there are also pubs, restaurants and shops galore, all located within a few minutes’ walk from your door.

A 7 minute downhill walk from the residence will bring beginners to the beginner area, alternatively there is a bus stop 300m away from the Chalet des Neiges residence.


Overview - chalet description - Chalet Caribou description

Sophistication and cosiness go hand in hand at the Chalet Caribou. A stay here means high altitude, high quality and high standards, all topped off with bucketloads of charm. Striking the perfect balance between contemporary and old world, the home from home comes complete with slick wooden floors, plush furniture and modern décor, all housed within traditional stone and wood exteriors.

Surrounded by the epic mountain scenery of Val Thorens, the chalet style apartment accommodates up to eight guests in four cosy and beautifully furnished bedrooms. The chalet’s lounge is a real beauty too, with sleek leather sofas to sink into after a day on the slopes and big windows from where you can take in your gloriously snowy surrounds. Imagine watching the snowflakes fall softly outside, as you add another log to the open hearth fire, all the while enjoying a cup of tea and a slice (or two!) of homemade cake. Sheer bliss!

This chalet style apartment is ideal and works really well when a family or group take over the apartment due to its shared facilities and cosy communal areas, although we are happy to sell on an individual room basis if requested.

As guests of the apartment style Chalet Caribou, you will also have access to the superb facilities within the Chalet des Neiges Residence. This means you can indulge in some post-slope relaxation in the complex’s private indoor heated swimming pool or soothe those weary muscles in the sauna. The Chalet des Neiges Residence also features a ski hire shop – talk about convenience!

Chalet Caribou cannot take infants.

Dietary Requirements

We strive to ensure that your specific dietary requirements and preferences are catered for as best we can. Please let us know at least 14 days prior to your holiday start date, to ensure that this is possible. Our team can cater for special dietary requirements be they for medical reasons, religious reasons or simply personal preference. Our chalet hosts will be advised of these requirements in advance of your stay and every effort will be made to ensure that they are met. However, we cannot guarantee that certain ingredients will not be in the environment nor can we guarantee that cross-contamination will not occur.

Children's Food

Children aged 11 and under will be served High Tea at around 6pm. This is provided at no extra cost and ensures that your child's normal routine is not disturbed: soft drinks or milk are served with the meal. It also ensures that adults can enjoy their evening meal, which is served at 8pm. If you have booked a whole chalet then you can eat together - please speak to your chalet hosts on arrival.

The Festive Season

An Alpine chalet is a wonderful place to spend the festive season. We provide Christmas trees and decorations. On the day itself, you can look forward to aperitifs, turkey with all the trimmings, flaming Christmas pudding, mince pies, and of course, Christmas crackers. For New Year most of our resorts will have torch-lit descents, fireworks and other celebrations. Alternatively, you could just enjoy New Year's Eve dinner in your chalet with a glass or two of fizz.

We update Chalet Caribou'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.

At the summit of the largest ski area in the world and bordering the Vanoise National Park, this is a spectacular place to ski and board. Beginners are well catered for on nursery slopes by the Rond Point des Pistes, where the magic carpets often don't require a lift pass. Kids will love the Junior Park, while the Musaraigne and Campagnols runs in the beginner's area and the new Deux Combes green are perfect to practice on. With a bit more confidence, take the Pionniers or Plein Sud chairs for some cruisy lon...
The après ski here easily rivals other top resorts in the Alps. If you haven't already had the Folie Douce experience, head just under the Plein Sud lift where the "dancefloor on top of the world" is heaving from 3 pm. Another place to party is Bar 360 at the end of the blue Moraine run, which always has live music and cheaper drinks.
