We travelled as a group of 4 (Polar Bears) and booked last minute to stay with Ski Total at Chalet Les Lauzes. I've had few bad experiences with Ski Total in the past but this trip was without incident and ALL the Ski Total reps were really good.
The place is small for groups of 10 but has a great atmosphere and if you're an experienced 3 star chalet based skier you shouldn't be disappointed. We had the 2 rooms without an ensuite but our bathrooms had a bath and shower (a little bit of luxury).
The chalet host Racheal was great and the food was above the star rating, well done to her.
The chalet is very close to the piste, there is a little bit of polling in the morning, to get to the piste and by the end of the week we even managed to virtually ski to the door, after dropping off the cretes run as high as we dare!
The chalet had full occupancy (10) we were lucky as ALL the other guests had a good sense of humour and we all got on well, even after long nights on the grenache. In fact on some nights there was even dancing!
The Avoriaz area is fantastic with loads of skiing.
In short a great little budget chalet but enjoy the vast skiing area.
