The chalet itself is fairly basic with only 1 en-suite room. After that it is 7 people to each bathroom and toilet which is too many, and the toilets mostly don't have wash basins. There are no keys to the room doors, though the front door is locked, and at least one single room doesn't even have a window, but does have a noisy vent. The atmosphere inside was bone dry and hard to drink enough in the night.
However, the staff (Crystal) were very good, even having someone get up at 4am on leaving day, and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was very good but we would have liked a bit bigger quantities after a hard day's skiing, but that is down to budget and not a criticism of the staff. There is plenty of free wine with/after the meal and tea and coffee available all day.
It is in an excellent location, right next to 2 lifts going opposite ways up the mountain, though it does take a small walk of maybe 50m up a small slippy rise. You can ski back to within 50m(max) of the chalet.
WiFI would be a very good addition to the chalet.
So apart from the basic(small) rooms and lack of bathroom/toilet facilities it was a very good experience, though people should know that there would usually be at least one large group there.
