How to find the perfect ski chalet

How does a chalet differ to staying in a hotel? A chalet should provide a unique experience enabling a group of friends or families to hire the entire Chalet on an exclusive basis for their ski holiday. Once you arrive the chalet should be treated as your own, with few house rules, allowing you to dine and wine when you wish, in as formal or informal a style as you prefer.Good quality chalets come with superb and charming staff that will go out of their way to ensure your holiday is exactly as you wish. Don't fall for those that are affiliated to a hotel and that try to coral you into a holiday that dovetails with their hotel operating times, make sure when reserving a chalet that it is the real deal.

Many hotel and apartment operators like to adopt the name chalet, whilst providing nothing different to a normal apartment, bed and breakfast, or hotel room. Some apartments claim to provide dinner, with the dinner provided in a nearby hotel - isn't this the worst of both worlds?

Other so called chalets are large houses divided up into several Chalets style accommodations. If you value your own privacy, want to make as much noise as you like, or want to avoid noise from chalets above and below you, avoid these types of arrangements!

First, decide on what you need. How many people are in your group, when are your dates and what is your budget. When you have this information, you can start looking online for the perfect ski chalet in Obergurgl. Narrow your search by using the site and applying filters based on your preferences.

Your catered ski chalet checklist

Is the entire building for your exclusive use, or are other floors or parts of the same property sold to other parties?

  1. Does the Chalet provide chalet hosts to look after you on a permanent exclusive basis, providing that personal touch?
  2. Will the chalet hosts provide ad-hoc babysitting when you feel like an impromptu après ski on the mountain?
  3. Location, location, location! Isthechalet close or on the slopes, and ideally near the lifts and village centre?
  4. Observe the details of the meals. What is included? All food, all drinks and good quality wines? Champagne? Where are meals served? If it's not in the chalet, and you have to put you ski wear and boots on to go to the restaurant, then it's not a proper ski chalet!!
  5. Transfer times, how long to get there?
  6. How is the snow record?
  7. Free wifi? No one wants to be disconnected, pay extra for wifi fees or have to login each day!
