Tracey and Gary, supported by Steph, are a dream team. Tracey's culinary skills exceeded all expectations (fabulous cakes for afternoon tea but do make sure you leave room for dinner!) and Gary was a star in providing great ski hosting for boarders and skiers of all abilities. They really made our New Year skiing break special.
The chalet was cosy and homely with a sociable seating area leading off the dining room. As a family of five booking independently from the other guests there's always the risk that the whole group might not mix well, but in this case we hit the jackpot. The atmosphere every mealtime was fantastic - we all ate out together on the staff night off and had some great experiences on the slopes.
One suggestion though: please increase lighting in Room 1, which was rather compact and a little dark.
