- Catered chalet
Chalet Chinchilla epitomises everything that you expect from a ski
chalet in terms of classic alpine design and wonderfully comfortable
accommodation. But as far as this chalet is concerned, it's the location
which sets it apart from others - a stone's throw from the Cospillot
piste and a short walk to the centre of the resort, makes it an ideal
choice for anyone keen to ski virtually to and from the door of their
chalet each day. A wonderfully cosy living room with a roaring fire as its centrepiece
provides the perfect haven to relax after a hard day on the piste and
french doors open onto the terrace with views over Cospillot and across
the valley to Courchevel 1650. The bedrooms are spread across two levels, with two double en-suite
bedrooms on the ground floor and the master bedroom above the kitchen.
Children will love the bunkroom which is also on the ground floor with
its own shower room.
Aching limbs can be soothed in the sauna which is on the lower level - an ideal retreat for a spot of relaxation. Built to an extremely high specification, Chalet Chinchilla has been
stylishly finished with elegant furniture and beautiful soft furnishings
making it ideal for families or groups of friends alike.

Courchevel 1850 Resort Info
Sat at the Eastern end (The Three Valleys piste maps look South!) of the biggest linked ski area in the world, it's not hard to see why Courchevel 1850 has become such an exclusive destination. Gentle, tree-lined pistes feed into and through the centre of the resort, with almost every chalet, hotel and apartment being on or near the piste. Meribel is quickly accessible by any number of routes. The superb, high-tech lift system means that you can be in Val Thorens in time for an early lunch with ease...
The biggest village and arguably the jewel in Courchevel's crown, 1850 is the focal point of the resort, with a good selection of world-class hotels, restaurants and shopping. There are a good selection of less expensive accommodation options in town, especially with several British run chalet hotels. Lift access to the whole 3 Valleys area is from the centre of town, giving easy access to almost all guests.

Snow Overview - France (snow news updated 04-Dec-2017)
Lots of fresh snow was falling all around the French Alps on Thursday 27th April. With a lowering freezing level and heavy snow falls continuing, many French mountain villages are looking very Christmas like. On snow conditions are generally fresh, although the lower slopes are still very spring like. Up top powder conditions are abundant, however, poor visibility and limited lift access is keeping the options restricted. The current snowy and cloudy weather will break for the weekend, presenting an excellent chance to get in one last lift access powder day for the season.
Many resorts will be closed next week, but there is still loads of fresh snow in the forecast. With a good knowledge of the avalanche problem, touring conditions will be exceptional well into next weekend.
European Weather Outlook
Across the central European Alps, snow and cold temperatures are forecast to stick around until Saturday. Accumulations of snow on the upper slopes could be huge for the time of year, with some Swiss resorts predicting around 80cm over the course of today and Friday. By the weekend the snow is predicted to subside in many regions and a mixture of sun and cloud is expected for much of Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland.
In the Pyrenees, Saturday should be the pick of the day for any skiing in Andorra. Our featured resorts are now closed for the season, but for anyone strapping on their skins, you can expect a mixture of sun and cloud, with temperatures around +3C
In Germany, 44cm of fresh snow is being forecast for Garmisch (0/380cm), who will be in disbelief at the moment for all the snow they have received of late.
Further north you can expect temperatures of around -3C and snow showers in Norway, which are set to continue right through to Sunday for resorts such Trysil. Across the border in Sweden, the weather should be fairly similar, but any snow that does fall is likely to be light and bring only 1-2cm.
Despite some recent biting temperatures and cold winds in the UK, any snow that does fall on the Scottish mountains is most likely to be on Thursday. Thereafter, rain could destroy any hopes of some late season turns.
