Contactless chalet company Ski France has added four new chalets to its collection for the coming winter.
The company, which has made a speciality of “contactless catered chalets” since the pandemic, meaning a form of chalet catering is provided without meeting staff, has two new chalets in Méribel and two in Alpe d’Huez available this winter.
They join Ski France’s wide range of contactless catered chalets across the French Alps in well-known resorts including such as Val d’Isère, Méribel, La Tania and Alpe d’Huez.
The chalets are divided into two groups – Classic and Premium – with the accommodation , think three, four, or even five star – and include quality food and drink, afternoon tea and snacks, delicious dinner, a selection of drinks with unlimited wine and a generous amount of beer, and a seamless contactless service.
The new chalets are the premium chalets Altaïr and Arolla (pictured top and bottom) in Méribel and the classic chalets Grande Étoile and Petite Étoile (pictured below) and in Alpe d’Huez.
The contactless catered chalet concept sees guest arriving to find food in the fridge, cool beer and chilled wine ready to drink as well as firewood stacked and beds made. Through the stay meals are prepared by a local delicatessen and delivered daily, for chalet guests to cook before simply sitting down to enjoy.
In addition to food, skis or snowboards will be reserved at the local hire shop and lift passes are delivered to the chalet.
Halfway through the week, when the family is out experiencing the slopes, the backstage chalet crew will clean the accommodation from top to bottom, replace towels and re-stock the fridge and cupboards with goodies. Ski France staff are also at the end of the phone whenever needed.
“Guests have the independence and comfort of their private chalet, eating at the time they decide, with no-one hurrying them or watching over them but still with the ease of no food shopping or meal planning,” a Ski France spokesperson explained.
