Chalet Le Lac Blanc is one of the truest ski in/ski out properties I’ve ever seen. It is right next to the DMC gondola and Les Jeux chairlift so we were able to catch first lift most days. The E.S.F. ski school meeting place is right next to the gondola and you have a choice of green runs back to the chalet. The snow park is also next to the green run, so it would be a great location for any freestyle practice or you can watch people take on the water jump or boxes from the safety of the balcony! We stayed on 9th April and we could still ski back to the door despite 6 sunny days in a row. Philippa and Ben were excellent hosts and the meals were great, we had duck, salmon, chicken and an array of great starters and puddings.

Really enjoyed our first ski holiday in this chalet. We didn’t really know what to expect of the communal part of the chalet experience but it was generally nice to meet other people. The dining area had a nice long table and although you couldn’t get everyone sat around the sofa areas, there weren’t many times we needed to. We thought the food was great, it wasn’t gourmet but there wasn’t anything we didn’t like and there was always plenty of it. They put the afternoon tea out nice and early around midday, so you could ski back and have breads, jams and cakes. I don’t think the location could have been any better. It was right next to the main lift and we could ski to the door.
Our room was good in terms of space, it was a bit awkward having the roof beams running through - especially in the bathroom - but they’re clearly an important part of the chalet so you just have to be careful! In an ideal world I would have preferred to have a double bed rather than two singles pushed together. We had a balcony that was shared with the room next door to us which was good for airing clothes. I suppose some people might not have appreciated the bedroom arrangements but you just have to plan your day so you don’t spend much time in your room.
