Overview: hotel description: Hotel Snow Chill description

Chill by name, chill by nature, this a great little spot for your stay in Risoul. You’re pretty much in the heart of the action here – with many independent shops, bars and places to eat a short stroll away. Best of all, the resort’s large ski station is just round the bend.

Inside, you have an inviting lounge area – with its warm tones and log store-styled bar – the hotel’s restaurant, fitness room and wellness area. There’s certainly some quirks too, from the aircraft propeller and bull horn on the wall to the lounge chairs with riveted metal bodies. Not to forget the flotation tank of course – it costs a little extra to use, but it’s a must-try.

Rooms can take families of up to 6, with bunk beds for littl’uns, as well as some triple rooms if it’s just one, two or three of you heading Risoul’s way. Standard board here is bed & breakfast, and the buffet spread in the mornings has bacon and sausages on the menu as well as classic Continental options. And if you like to keep things simple and have your evening meals here too, a half board upgrade is available – easy.

Guillestre in the Southern Alps is home to lovely Risoul, a parish of tiny hamlets dotted about under a modern ski resort. Most of the hamlets have their own guesthouses and hotels - Rua and its town hall being the nerve centre of the lot, Gaudissard the highest at 1300m and Hamlet L’Eglise arguably the prettiest, named after its 16th century Romanesque church. They’re delightfully compact and traditional, with church steeples, wood and stone buildings and surrounding forest. On the other hand, Risou...
With 21 green runs and 45 blues, beginners and improvers will have a ball in Risoul. The Espace Debutants (usually free to use) is near the village base, with easy access to the Chardons and Vallon Vert greens for progression. When you’ve got your ski legs, the R12 and R4 chairs serve some gorgeous tree-lined blues back to the village (we like Faucon). The ski area planners have laid out the pistes so learners can ski back home from the Peyrefolle summit like all other levels of skier and snowboarder – and we ...
Families are the main focus here, which means the après is less rowdy, more relaxed. That’s not to say you can’t find a decent watering hole in these parts - Grotte du Yeti has sister bars in Les 2 Alps and other resorts, and is a favourite for big themed parties where crowds spill out from the terrace. In the resort centre, Le Babao Rhum do all the classic cocktails and a cracking rum punch, while Pub La Place is a good spot for draught and bottled beers as well as whisky. For food-focussed evenings, th...
