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 its skiing convenience is hard to beat. Nowhere in Val Thorens is far from anything, and Chalet Ibex is no exception.
Chalet Ibex 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 third 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 Ibex is on the third floor, 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.
Chalet Ibex is one of the highest chalet style apartments in the French Alps, it is split over two floors and accommodates up to twelve guests. This chalet offers modern decor and boasts an open plan communal living area with wonderful views of the piste. The lounge has comfortable sofas ideal for relaxing after the exertions on the slopes. Your chalet host will be on hand throughout your holiday serving wonderful hearty food and ready and willing to advise on ski conditions and what to do and where to go, they will offer a wealth of knowledge to ensure that you get the best out of your ski holiday.
As a chalet style apartment, the Chalet Ibex is ideal for families or groups taking 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.
Chalet Ibex also has the added advantage of being situated in Chalet des Neiges Residence, giving guests of Chalet Ibex access to the indoor heated swimming pool and the ten man sauna. This great array of extra facilities makes a real difference, particularly if there are non-skiers in your group or simply as an added extra for the little ones in the evening time. The residence also enjoys the convenience of having the ski hire shop right in the heart of the residence so ski and board hire is easily accessible.

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 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.
