Staying at Chalet Poudreuse will allow you the opportunity to genuinely ski to and from the door, enjoy après-ski bars on the doorstep and it's just minutes away from the traffic-free resort centre, where there are shops, cafés and the brilliant Aquariaz water park. A ski school meeting point is just meters away. Early booking is recommended to secure your dates of choice, as this chalet is in very high demand.

During the evening the area around the chalet becomes calm and quiet apart from the jingling bells of the horse sleighs trotting past. The neighbouring bars close by 6.30pm daily, ensuring a relaxing evening in the chalet.

Chalet Poudreuse has 6 good-sized en-suite bedrooms over two floors, each one with a shower and one room has a bath to soak in too. Five rooms have twin beds that can be made up as doubles; please request at booking. One room has a twin/double bed and a bunk bed (suitable for smaller adults). All rooms have flat screen TV's.

To help relax and revive for a great day skiing there is a sauna on the lower ground floor, the bedrooms on this floor have natural light and ventilation but no view.

A snowcat resort taxi on arrival and departure in Avoriaz is included. This is a fun ride in a piste basher style vehicle, saving a 5 minute walk across snow from the Avoriaz Welcome Station (airport transfer drop-off point and car park) to the chalet door, or you can take a magical horse and sleigh resort taxi (payable locally).
