LIVE THAT LIFE

Great accommodation is an essential part of the Ski Weekend ethos. We take special care in choosing a hotel or chalet to match your specific requirements. All the accommodation we use has been personally vetted by us to ensure it meets our own high standards of comfort and cleanliness.

We can offer you unashamed luxury or a two star gem and anything else in between.

Many of the hotels or chalets we use have been giving Ski Weekend visitors first class service for all the years that we’ve been here ourselves. Most are family owned and run and you can be sure of a warm welcome.

Hotels in Chamonix, Argentière, Les Praz & Les Houches

The Chamonix Valley has an incredible blend of old world mountaineering charm and refined, contemporary luxury. Each of the centres in the valley have grown to fulfil their own specific niche. Ski Weekend chooses from best accommodation the Valley offers.

Chamonix, with its plethora of flagship stores, has built around a deep connection with mountaineering history. For those preferring to be at the centre of it all, fine hotels, michelin starred restaurants and shopping that would grace a medium sized city are all within an easy walk. That’s not to say (reasonably well heeled) ski bums are excluded – Chamonix is a rarity in the ski world in that it is a real place to live and ski (and climb, fly, run and cycle…). It is because of this being a real living place that visitors to Chamonix get to breathe the buzz of skiing even if they here for only a few days. Unmissable.

Argentière, is the seat of all things gnarly and bearded. Well, it was once. Nowadays you are more likely to bump into the fit and healthy ones (partying hard though they may be). It has to be said that Les Grands Montets is a mecca for all skiers. It is also rather inclusive with relatively forgiving pistes winding their way between lumps and bumps that each have a grand name – like “the Italian Bowl”, the “Canadian Bowl” and the “East Grinstead Bowl”. Maybe not the last but you get the drift. The accommodation tends towards smaller, friendly hotels but effects of the luxurification of Chamonix are now reaching up and beyond Argentière.

Les Houches is sometimes written off as a family only centre but with easy access to the whole of the valley and some of the best deep snow skiing available in the area (when other lifts may be closed) Les Houches is a sensible option.

Les Praz is the centre of the valley – I know we gave Chamonix this distinction but Les Praz is in poised in a subtle widening of the valley surrounded by Les Drus and the Aiguilles. Because of this there is an up market slightly knowing feel to the place, with the Flégère télécabine rising from the Les Praz the sunny slopes of this and Brévent are on your doorstep.
