Organising a large ski group as I do every year, it helps me when I find a tour operator who is understanding and helpful...... enter SKI VAL.
1. Ski Val - the tour operators who run the Chamois D'Or are without doubt THE most customer friendly and focussed team I have ever worked with. From start to finish, the booking, the payment, the amendments to the booking, the greeting at the airport, the running of the accommodation, the friendliness of staff etc.
1. The Chamois D'Or - Location, cannot be beaten, The way its run and managed - cannot be beaten, accommodation options for a large group - cannot be beaten. All this for a price that is great for Val (and I speak from experience of avoiding Val for that very reason - costs). The accommodation has had a slight bit of a refurb in some common areas and some rooms. I would say they are all comfortable, and the common areas are great - really excellent for what a Chalet is all about, cosy, comfortable and ideal for socialising. It wont be everyones cup of tea if you are used to luxury, but this is our 3rd year in a row for a group of between 40-50, that I think speaks volumes.
The way the accommodation is run is refreshing, previously Dave had managed the Cham, this year Ben managed the Cham - both have a similar outlook and that is 'the customer comes first'. Guest satisfaction and comfort is paramount - they treat us like royalty, we treat them like part of the family.
Each year I write back to Ski Val thanking them for making the week fantastic, this year was no exception, I thought it could not get any better (we were lucky with the snow and weather which does help), but it did, Ben runs this Chalet the way everyone needs to run their Chalets - take note all you big corporate tour operators.....
Food was great, excellent chef, difficult to make such good meals on a low budget but we even had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for brekky one day !
Last and very important point - They have Peroni on tap in the Chalet bar at UK prices, come on, that alone is a reason to go back.........
