Very good! I thought it looked virtually brand new and well looked after. The food was absolutely fine and if someone wanted something different they could ask and the staff would gladly do it. The chalet hosts were fine. The building itself is conveniently located for the slopes. Because it’s a ski in, ski ou... + more

Jill, Barry, Jake and Susan were extremely helpful, friendly hosts who are a complete credit to the company. The chalet is in a great position to ski in and out, very new, clean and warm. The heated boot rack wonderful. Our room, the double with bunks, was under the main lounge dining area and unfortunately the... + more

Enjoyed good skiing throughout the Portes du Soleil region from an excellent base in Avoriaz. The chalet is well positioned for ski in, ski out and easy to get into the village on foot. Room 4 is a bit noisy, and insulation between the three rooms on ground floor level would have been sensible, as would somethi... + more

Location - where is Chalet Poudreuse

Situated at the top of resort just by the TK Dromonts lift and a short glide away from the 'Plateau' nursery slopes. After a hard day on the slopes the chalet is just staggering distance from the Yeti Bar and a short walk in to town for those wanting to venture a little further afield.


Overview - chalet description - Chalet Poudreuse description

It took us 24 years, but last season we opened our first chalet on the plateau in the centre of Avoriaz. At a dizzying altitude of 1850 metres, and right next to the piste, lifts, ski schools, mountain restaurants and village centre, independent chalets in this spot are rarer than January marmottes. Ski-in ski-out locations don’t get better than this anywhere in the world; we have to transfer you and your bags across the pistes by snowcat!

Reborn from the site of an old 16th century barn, our brand new independent Chalet Poudreuse has a fabulous vaulted living area with flat screen and fireplace, balcony with spectacular mountain and piste side views and ubiquitous sauna. At this altitude and location the bedrooms are undeniably compact, but well equipped nonetheless; with plenty of storage, wall mounted flat screen TVs and smart contemporary bathrooms. We have long wanted to bring VIP SKI service to this idyllic and unique skiing paradise. Two staff live in the chalet for your comfort and convenience.

When your instructor can knock on the door without removing his skis and you can stroll across the empty piste for a beer as the sun goes down at the end of the day, you will appreciate why we are so excited about this incredible asset. A completely unique ski holiday experience.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Poudreuse

Our Executive Chef is passionate about food and hugely sensitive to the appetite of a hungry skier whilst considering a balanced diet. The new and refined menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.

All our holidays include;

  • Continental breakfast with a cooked option on 6 mornings
  • Afternoon tea will be left in the chalet for you to help yourself to freshly made cake or biscuits, bread & jams, selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate
  • Canapés on the first and last evening
  • 3 course evening meal (6 nights) followed by cheese board and coffee
  • A choice of red and white wine is served throughout dinner
We update Chalet Poudreuse'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 is one of our favourite resorts to bring the brood: thanks to a huge and central children’s village, complete with a specialised snowboarding area, children can learn to ski and ride in a fun and safe environment. Avoriaz is one of the only resorts that has a Beginner Pass – letting you find your feet on easy terrain via 14 lifts without the expense of a full lift pass. Beginners-only piste Première Glisse gives you the chance to improve at your own pace, while Proclu and Q’mont are easy blues for cruis...
While Avoriaz isn’t renowned for its nightlife, it nevertheless has an array of restaurants, bars and off-slope activities that contribute to a lively après ski scene. Le Tavallion is an English themed pub for a home-from-home atmosphere, Shooters is good for party-lovers while Le Choucas and Le Yak tend to be the venues of choice for late night clubbing. With sister restaurants in glamorous St Tropez and Marrakesh, La Table du Marché is a place to fine-dine in style. Alongside a few of the pubs, Chez Flo s...

"A very good chalet"

Stephen
5/ out of 5
Very good! I thought it looked virtually brand new and well looked after. The food was absolutely fine and if someone wanted something different they could ask and the staff would gladly do it. The chalet hosts were fine. The building itself is conveniently located for the slopes. Because it’s a ski in, ski out resort, you just put your skis on and ski - then go up to a particular lift and ski down at the end of the day.

"Tremendous week"

Tim N
5/ out of 5
Stayed at the chalet for a family skiing holiday. The chalet is very comfortable and clean, with excellent facilities. The living area is very spacious with a fabulous view over the resort. The bedrooms are well appointed and comfortable with lots of hot water. The chalet is centrally located and a short walk to a good selection of bars, restaurants and shops. It is also very close to the pistes and it is an easy ski-in/out. Jake and Susie were brilliant hosts and contributed massively to making our holiday so special. They worked so hard all week and were very attentive and accommodating to the needs of all the guests. The food was delicious and several receives have been copied out to be recreated at home. In my experience they were a cut above the regular chalet hosts and future guests will be very fortunate to have their company. ... And as my 9-year-old son insisted on typing "Our ski hosts Susan and Jake are very good with kids. They are always up early to make their continental breakfast for all the people staying in the chalet. The chalet would not run properly without Jake and Susan, and they would be hard to beat running the chalet. They gave everyone in my party a fantastic time, and I think that the other people in the chalet would say so too."

"Wonderful ski holiday"

Fiona Cutting
4/ out of 5
Jill, Barry, Jake and Susan were extremely helpful, friendly hosts who are a complete credit to the company. The chalet is in a great position to ski in and out, very new, clean and warm. The heated boot rack wonderful. Our room, the double with bunks, was under the main lounge dining area and unfortunately the tiled floor above us meant that every sound was magnified. Not the fault of the company but when the hosts were starting breakfast early we knew about it! There was a good sauna and lots of really hot water available at all times. Breakfast was excellent and extensive. Afternoon tea was supplied with bread, jam etc although the cakes variable. The dinners were adequate but would not have fed hungry skiers in their 20s or 30s and of average standard compared to previous experiences with other chalet operators, a bit style over substance with more veg required.

"Good place to stay in Portes du Soleil"

Charles Elgood
4/ out of 5
Enjoyed good skiing throughout the Portes du Soleil region from an excellent base in Avoriaz. The chalet is well positioned for ski in, ski out and easy to get into the village on foot. Room 4 is a bit noisy, and insulation between the three rooms on ground floor level would have been sensible, as would something to muffle the noise from the dining room above including the sliding door which all occupants of the ground floor rooms noted. It is a pretty basic design flaw, but Jake helpfully said he'd look into finding some solution for this (though not resolved during our stay). Thanks to Susan and Jake for an enjoyable stay, great food and their advice on getting to the furthest pistes.

"Sunshine on the Slopes"

We've just returned from a fabulous sunshine week of skiing at the stunning Chalet Poudreuse. The chalet is really modern and comfortable and is situated in a perfect location for doorstep skiing and just a 5 minute walk into Avoriaz centre. A big thanks to Barry and Gill who were exceptional hosts and made everyone feel welcome from the very start and nothing was too much trouble. Their cooking was amazing and they kept the chalet immaculate.
