Just got back from a snowboard camp held at Chalet Madosa. Food and accommodation were great, and i was particularly glad of the hot tub after a hard day in the snow park with the Our Camp team. Hosts could not have been more helpful in sorting out my snowboard bindings - Thanks Jordan. It's our second time at Ride and Slide and Chalet Guytaume is just as good. Many of the other holdaymakers were also returning for a second if not fifth time. Now i'm just dreaming of the improvements i might make next time, as i watch the Olympic slope style events.

Tightly packed beds but that goes with the territory in a ski resort and the overall stay was excellent. Hosts, food, and facilities were all brilliant. A no-stress trip! Happily recommend. And they partner with #ourcamp for extra fun factor.

What an immense time we had last week with the Ride & Slide guys... again! There's nothing more that you'd need for a snow trip - super friendly, helpful staff (who didn't mind me continually demanding things... scissors/teaspoons/water filling!), continuous amazing food (with my dietary requirements taken on as a chef's challenge rather than a problem!), sauna and hottub for easing the riding pains, robes and slippers for that extra luxury, an awesome games room, and most importantly an incredibly warming atmosphere from everyone who just genuinely loved being there. The chalet's a super easy walk into town (or 1 minute bus ride for lazy days!), very clean chalet, everything sorted for us, and epic days up the mountain. What more could you need? Thank you Dave, Jordan (who even came back to the chalet when he couldn't sleep so he could help guests to the 5am transfer!), Zoe, and of course to the completely awesome Lisa and Jon - can't wait to see you all soon. We'll be back...again! :) Kaz x

Having had a great time with Ride and Slide last year I was keen to book with them again, this time with a larger group of friends. This time we were a little late in booking so only chalet Madosa was available which was lucky considering it was a Saturday to Saturday transfer and we were Sunday to Sunday.

We arrived early Sunday Monday and were immediately picked up by the driver John (the owner) had arranged and in less than 90 minutes we were meeting chalet hosts Jordan and Zoe and tucking into lovely carrot cake that chalet chef Dave had prepared. Half an hour later and we were heading up the mountain with Jordan while the rest of the group unpacked and explored the town. For anyone considering skiing on the day of arrival the debutant lift pass should give you enough area to play around with. It's only €21 vs €35 for the whole area pass for 5 hours or €39 for the day.

By 4.30 we were completely worn out and were able to meet Jordan again at 4.30 for two minute lift back to the chalet for yet more cake followed by a trip to the sauna and then hot tub. This is the life!

At 7.30 the groups in the chalet came together for dinner (6 couples) and had a really tasted beef dish that just melted in the mouth. Within the groups there was a veggie as well as someone that was gluten and diary intolerant but they were very well taken care of. House wine (red or white) was freely available at the table and following desert there wasn’t a big debate about taking the last of the bottle to the lounge area.

Our first day really set the tone for the week for the week. A tasty breakfast followed by a quick lift or two down the lifts from Jordan, followed by a hard day’s sking/boarding. Most days we managed to meet Jordan for the return lift but on the rare occasion we were late it was only a 10 minute walk in snowboard boots (12 minutes in ski boots). If we weren't in the sauna or hottub then we were playing pool downstairs sipping a cold beer.

Dinner was always around 7.30 and we had a variety of starters and main meals during the week including fish, chicken and my personal favourite- tartiflette as well as a tasty selection of deserts. Unlike La Feme a Mamy the cheese and port selection only came out once in the week but this time we had Jordan’s cheesy jokes to contend with.

Wednesday night was chalet night off and Katy (Ride and Slide manager) had booked us into a local restaurant (L’Etale). Be warned this place serves great food but is super busy and they couldn’t find our reservation. Luckily another group had cancelled so we got their table although the other group had to wait about half and hour to be seated. It was a messy night but we made it back in one piece and were up bright and some of us were up bright and early in the morning.

Overall we had a great time in the chalet and really enjoyed the hosting from Jordan, Zoe and cooking from Dave. The only slight negative I could say about the chalet was the fact that the bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms were not the largest (especially in comparison to their other chalet). That being said we did not spend a huge amount of time in them and they were clean, comfortable and the water was always hot. We also were supplied decent toiletries (shower gel etc) as well as slippers and robes for the sauna etc.

Speaking on behalf of the group we would definitely return if only to hear more of Jordan’s cheesy jokes and debate 90’s music with Dave! If the snow's good later this season we'll be back for more.

Room Tip: All the rooms upstairs are similar size although i think one had a bathtub/shower. Two of the rooms...

Had a fantastic week at Chalet Madosa. Amazing food cooked by the chef Dave. Our holiday was made complete by the excellent chalet hosts Zoe & Jordan.
Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, they were very accommodating to everyone in the chalet
The chalet was in a great location, very spacious and comfortable. Best chalet we have stayed. Thanks again for a great holiday.

Have just returned from a week here with my other half and had an amazing time.

The chalet is great, loads of space, separate bar area, loads of seating, great bedrooms and lots of lovely little touches like bathrobes, slippers etc. Location was perfect for us, not right in the heart of the noisy town centre but close enough so we could get anywhere we wanted with ease. The chalet even do a minibus service to from the lifts if you want it - seemed a bit pointless to us, we were happy to either walk or jump on the free ski bus that stopped right outside!

My high lights of the week were a combination of the Daves amazing food and the service provided by Zoe & Jordan. Nothing was too much trouble, they were really friendly but professional and pitched everything just right.

Was a truly fantastic ski trip - we're big Morzine fans and having tried quite a few chalets/companies in Morzine now this one is certainly one we'll be coming back to.
