The types of accommodation you normally choose from are hotels, apartments or chalets.
Hotels and apartments are the same as they are anywhere. Hotels you obviously don’t have to cook for yourself and save on restaurant bills, apartments you do cook for yourself or eat out and have a few useful things extras during your week such as, usually, washing facilities for your clothes and a fridge to keep drinks in.
The other type of accommodation, which is almost ‘uniquely British’ is the ‘chalet party’ where you share a building with like-minded skiers and here you have chalet staff serving you breakfast, dinner and afternoon tea and cakes. With these it is like being in a shared house so it’s good to be the sociable sort, but it’s a great way to make friends and these are often the best value as you’re normally well fed and usually have drinks included in your up front cost.
