Service

Organising a ski trip for a group of friends or large family group can be hard work. Let us take the strain for you. We can help with all aspects of organising your trip from providing driving directions to suggesting the best ski school. We can offer suggestions for airport transfers, ski hire and the best restaurants. For Ski Lessons and passes, we can book these for you in advance of your stay.

Transfers

Transfers directly to the chalet can be arranged through Magic Transfers who are based in the valley and offer reasonable prices and comfortable vehicles.

Ski Hire

La Chapelle d’Abonance has a number of ski hire shops, but we recommend using the excellent service provided by our partners at Ski Hire 2 U.
