Technically you can ski out from the hotel but only to the base of the nursery slope were you need to take a slow conveyor belt back up to give you access to the main chamole lift. It was a lot quicker to walk about 20 yards up the gentle slope and ski from there. Skiing back is a breeze straight up to the top of the steps down to the boot room.
The food is both plentiful and very nice. No complaints at all. The antipasti starter was superb.
Talking to other guests I think we had one of the smaller rooms. It was just big enough. The balcony was nice and overlooked the slopes and the mountains beyond. The room had its own heating control which worked well and there was always a good supply of hot water. For those that need to watch tv there are just the 2 English speaking channels (euronews & bbcworld).
Because of the small number of guests at the time of visiting the bar area was very quiet so we walked up to the main area 15 minutes up hill for a more social bar scene.
The hotel is very clean and the staff people are friendly. If a simple half board hotel is what you need then this will do fine.
