Just got back from a beginner's snowboard week with a company called Snowology. They have two chalets in Staine Foy, France that they rent out on a catered basis (Chalet Sache and Nicole). The food was fantastic, the hosts even better. They take care of everything for you and even spend time filiming you and producing a DVD of all your greatest "hits" (or should I say falls!) at the end of the week. I could have not asked for a better time. The resort is fairly new in the Savoyard style and the pistes were not croweded. Great off piste skiing and an exceptional ski school. I would highly recommend the resort and the chalet.
