Les Clèves – Exclusive chalet area
The chalet ‘Altitude 1600’ is located in the ‘Les Clèves’ exclusive area directly on the 'Jean-Pierre' ski slope at the top of Haute-Nendaz. At 1600m high and at the top of the resort means more and longer lasting snow than in the most of the village accommodations. By going to ‘Les Clèves’ area, you’ll also be escaping the large apartment settlements of the village to enjoy a unique area of typical and modern ski chalets. Additionally the chalet is close to the newly opened restaurant ‘Bistro les Clèves’, where local food meets Scandinavian influences and the highly animated Ski Bar ‘Le Bob’ where you can stop by after a skiing or a snow shoe walk to take some refreshments or a little aperitif before walking back to the chalet ;).
In summer, you can enjoy direct access to the chalet by car with 5 parking spots available at the chalet.
Here’s how it’s organized for winter season:
Chalet Altitude 1600 is located directly on the ski slope. Located at 1600m, in winter with snow and the ski slope it is not directly accessible by car. So to help you effortlessly move your luggage through the snow, we’ve organized a local chauffeur service in a Polaris snow machine with our chalet operator.
What does this mean? Well, when you arrive in Nendaz, you can park at the Parking 'Les Clèves', where there are up to 5 reserved parking spots waiting just for you: no other chalet has that many parking spots in the area! That’s how much we care in offering you a great service :). The parking 'Les Clèves' on the ski slopes and the chalet are only 10 min walk away from each other (Tip: if you just need a small thing in the car, you can access the car with your skis, and then drop it off at the chalet the next time you go down the ski slope ;)). It’s downhill walk from the and uphill walk from the parking.
1) From the parking ‘Les Clèves`, you'll be transported in a Polaris upon arrival to the Chalet Altitude 1600.
2) Also included in the given winter rates, you can arrange 3 transport trips per week of stay (for shopping for example) from/to the chalet to/from the parking.
3) Upon departure at the end of your stay, you'll be transported back to the parking with your luggage.
All of the transportation trips described above are included in the weekly rates. Should you need more transportation trips than those described, you can always organize extra trips for a small fee with the chalet operator during your stay :)
