This was my 5th ski holiday overall but the first that wasn't entirely self-catered, so it was a novel experience. The meals were hearty and tasty. On arrival at 9pm after a fairly long day of travelling from London, we were greeted warmly by Rob and Lorrian, with a bowl of soup followed by a main meal of beef stew. That set the tone for the rest of the week: good food, comfortable accommodation and friendly hosts. Everything you would expect from that price bracket - and done well. I would definitely stay again. In terms of the location, it was the first time I've not been able to ski straight to a lift, but I was surprised to find that it wasn't as annoying as I thought it would be. The 10-15 minute walks in the morning were a good chance to warm up the legs, body and mind. We also used the train service to access other resorts on 2 of the days, which was well worth the effort. I can particularly recommend Kaltenbach which had a fun home run (for the more confident skiers and snowboarders) but also great wide open pistes and an excellent restaurant (Kristallhutte).
