A Ski Room in a Cable Car Cabin

The luxurious Chalet Marco Polo in Val d’Isere is set to have even more unique facilities for its fortunate guests this winter.

The chalet’s ski room is being re-located to be housed inside a real cable car cabin.

The owners of the chalet have installed a full-sized cable car in the chalet, where guests will be able to have their ski equipment fitted professionally.

The bespoke made to measure cabin is based on the old vintage style ones from Val d’Isere and is equipped not only for comfort of guests but to allow ski suppliers to come and fit equipment and also to house maintenance equipment needed for skis.

Chalet Marco Polo has also installed an enormous ‘big boy’s car racing game.’ Described as, “a proper Scalextric for grown ups and kids too,” it allows up to eight players (young or old) to compete in their own Formula 1 tournament.

Consensio Chalets offer holidays in the 1000m² Chalet Marco Polo which (very) comfortably sleeps 10 adults and 4 children in six en-suite bedrooms at prices from £39,500 per week.
