Overview - chalet description - Chalet Christophorus description

NB: Next year chalet catering will be 5 nights catered not 6, for winter 2018/2019 (i.e. guests eat out 2 nights, if staying in this property).

Chalet Christophorus is hugely popular with guests. It’s one of the very few catered chalets for adult guests in the whole of this superb resort and offers the most fabulous location on the very edge of the piste!

Set in a quiet cul-de-sac off the main street, within easy walking distance of the village centre, and right on the slopes at the foot of the No 6 Blue run, the Christophorus is one of the best located chalets in the Alps. For added convenience, the beginners’ ski area is just behind the chalet and the ski-school meeting-point is a mere 50m away.

Just 30m from the ski-room door, you can put your skis on and ski down to the main Festkogl gondola, and then ski back right to the chalet at the end of the day. Or, if you wanted to start from the village centre, the regular free ski-bus stops just 50m from the chalet.
The bedrooms are all well appointed, comfortable and attractively styled, most with their own private en suite bath and separate wc, and several with balcony or terrace.

The dining-room on the first floor is traditionally styled with light wooden fixtures, and there is a traditional Tyrolean tiled stove to add ambience and warmth to your chalet dining experience. A small separate lounge offers a quiet spot to read or chat over the day’s skiing, and the sauna and relaxation area are an added bonus for unwinding after a busy ski day.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Christophorus

We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff involved in food preparation are trained to the City & Guilds qualification – Level 2 in Food Safety during the pre-season training course. For six days of the week for our 2017/18 season, and five days of the week for 2018/19, our staff prepare all your meals, as described below.

Breakfast

A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a hot option, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. On our staff's day(s) off, only the continental breakfast will be provided.

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 day(s) off. 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.

Dinner

2017/18 season cuisine

A three-course adult-only chalet dinner starts with Prosseco, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality red and white wines is unlimited during the meal service, and chilled water is also of course always available.

2018/19 season cuisine

Our hosts will cook you a three-course adult only meal 5 nights a week. Consisting of an appetiser, main course and dessert – with unlimited complimentary red, white and rosé wine during service! The staff nights off are a great opportunity to experience some local restaurents and cuisine. Speak to your resort representative for recommendations and help with reservations.

Our Quality Wines

We are very proud of our wine selection for chalets and Chalet Hotels, which combines crisp and fruity whites with medium to full bodied reds, for a variety of palates. In our Chalet Hotels we also offer an additional light fresh rosé to our guests’ choice. We select our wines in conjunction with our good friends Nicolas and Véronique – the third generation in the Perret family’s fine wine business based in the Savoie. Nicolas is a qualified wine expert, having trained at the prestigious Burgundy Wine University in Beaune. Each season in October, Nicolas & Véronique bring over a new selection for us to sample (someone has to do it!) and together we choose our wines for the coming season, based on our menus and their pure enjoyment factor. Wine is an incredibly subjective and emotive subject, however the feedback we have received from our guests over recent seasons endorses our aims of providing wines to enhance your meal and to suit most tastes. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!

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

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.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets - just advise us at time of bookings so that we can ensure that our staff can prepare. 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.

Christmas and New Year

All of our chalets and Chalet Hotels will serve a traditional Christmas dinner with a glass of Champagne to start off the evening. This will include roast turkey with all of the trimmings, Christmas pudding, mince pies, crackers and party hats plus a fantastic Alpine atmosphere in which to enjoy the day.
A special festive menu will also be served on New Year’s Eve, alongside the added bonus that many resorts put on fantastic firework displays. A glass of fizz, whilst watching fireworks over the snow-capped peaks of the Alps.. what better way to bring in the New Year!

NB: Next year chalet catering will be 5 nights catered not 6, for winter 2018/2019 (i.e. guests eat out 2 nights, if staying in this property).

We update Chalet Christophorus'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.

This package holiday to Chalet Christophorus in Obergurgl, Austria departs Tuesday 19th December 2017, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

With some of Austria’s most snow-sure conditions, an easy-going atmosphere and bundles of character, it’s no wonder Obergurgl is known as the ‘Diamond in the Alps’.

This traditional mountain village sits at a high 1930m in Austria’s Oztal valley. Obergurgl is renowned as a snow sure resort with some of Austria’s highest altitudes, making it well worth a visit if you’re travelling particularly early or late in the season. Scattered with upmarket accommodation, the village itself blends a touch of luxury with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. It has a vibrant character and is oozing alpine charm with many a Tyrolean tradition to be found in the town and on the mountains...
A number of highly regarded ski schools are on hand for beginners – there’s a gentle learning slope at the resort for picking up the basics. A mini club and ski kindergarten are available at the Obergurgl Ski School where skiing is taught in a fun and safe environment for little ones just starting out. The Topexpress Gondola takes you to Hochgurgl’s higher-altitudes. Wide pistes and amazing snow make this the perfect area for progressing beginners to test their abilities. After steadying those legs, work y...
The après starts on the mountains where there are a host of bars ready to serve skiers that well-deserved pick me up of warm glühwein. The skis come off at the lively Nederhutte, just above the resort, where merry skiers mingle with drinks accompanied by live music before getting up on the tables when the real party starts. The gondola next to the bar will take those a little unsteady on their skis back to the resort - when these close skidoos run everyone back to base. Hohe Mut is another favourite amongst...

"Recommended"

5/ out of 5
The chalet is very good in general, close to the slopes so very convenient as you can get right out from the back. It’s not too far to walk into town either. The chalet itself is nicely laid out, the rooms had a good view and a nice amount of space. Food was really good with a decent menu and meals that were nicely prepared. Whatever their relationship with the food company was, it worked out well for us as customers. There are good facilities for keeping equipment which is always important. Overall I would definitely recommend the Christophorous as a good place to stay.

"Still the only adult chalet in town?"

Louise, Sno Staff
5/ out of 5
There's no wonder this place is so popular. If you want to ski awesome Obergurgl with its terrifically snow sure reputation and classy ambiance, there's no better place to stay, because this is the only catered chalet that's for grown ups in town. And this is one very grown up resort, with bucket loads of alpine history and a superb snow record. The chalet is known for its friendly and expert staff who not only provide hearty mountain food for the hard charging first-to-last-lift brigade, but also have great advice on where to ski and the nicer spots to venture out to after your well earned supper. If your Obergurgl ski holiday has to be in a catered chalet (a fine stipulation in our opinion) and you're not taking children, this is the place to base yourself for a very special week in one of Austria's best winter destinations.

"Really good value and location"

Judith, Burntisland
4/ out of 5
Chalet was overall good value (as ski holidays go!). It’s in a really good position for ski in / ski out, boot room is very organised, our room was clean – could have done with a bit more storage, there weren’t any drawers but there was lots of hanging room. The room for my three teenage boys was big enough. The food was fine, only small complaint I had was that the cutlery and crockery was not very clean, I think the dishwasher just needed some rinse aid and it would have been fine. For the afternoon tea, we would have liked some bread, butter and jam (to keep the hungry teenage boys happy!) but it was lovely to have tea and coffee available all the time. We hadn’t been to Obergurgl before but I would go again. It’s easy to navigate, has good links to Hochgurgl and there were no queues (even though we did go early in December which is never too busy). Even though we were here in December we had March weather – lots of sunshine and not too cold – I was expecting to be frozen! The pistes were beautifully groomed and we had no trouble with the skiing. My son broke his wrist on the 5th day and the clinic don’t take an EHIC card so make sure you have travel insurance! The situation was very well handled by the reps who were good and efficient and the hospital back home were pleased with the treatment my son received out there.
