Chalet Pika is one of the highest chalet style apartments in the French Alps, and accommodates up to twelve guests on one floor. This chalet offers spacious modern decor and boasts an open plan communal living area with wonderful views of the piste. The lounge has comfortable sofas ideal for relaxing after your exertions on the slopes. Your Ski Beat chalet host will be on hand throughout your holiday serving wonderful hearty food and is ready and willing to advise on ski conditions, what to do and where to go, they will offer a wealth of knowledge to ensure that you get the best out of your ski holiday.
As a chalet style apartment, the Chalet Pika is ideal for families or groups taking over the apartment due to its shared facilities and cosy communal areas, although we are happy to sell on an individual room basis if requested.
Chalet Pika also has the added advantage of being situated in the Chalet des Neiges Residence, giving guests of Chalet Pika access to the indoor heated swimming pool and the ten man sauna. This great array of extra facilities makes a real difference, particularly if there are non-skiers in your group or simply as an added extra for the little ones in the evening time.
Chalet Pika cannot take infants.

Val Thorens Resort Info
Val Thorens skiing
At 2300m, Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe, meaning the resort has a great snow record. Put simply, if there's no snow in Val Thorens then there's no snow anywhere! Forming part of the 600km Three Valleys ski domain, Val Thorens' extended skiing is excellent, with intermediates being particularly spoilt for choice. Advanced skiers also have plenty to play on with big moguls and access to the Maurienne Valley for off-piste adventures. In addition there's an excellent Snowpark to keep freestylers busy. Beginners too can enjoy Val Thorens with several gentle greens and easy blues scattered around the resort. There is no better all-around ski area anywhere in Europe, possibly the World.
Val Thorens ski resort
As the resort is traffic-free and purpose-built, most accommodation options offer ski-in-ski-out accessibility. As well as being Europe's highest resort and part of the biggest linked ski area, Val Thorens has gained a reputation in recent years as a lively apres ski destination. The arrival of the raucous Folie Douce and the slightly more chilled Bar 360 mean that your apres ski party begins on the slopes in mid-afternoon. Back in resort you've got a choice of several bustling pubs, including Europe's highest in the Frog and Roastbeef. If you're still thirsty for more then the Alps' biggest underground nightclub, Malaysia, stays open almost until first lifts in the morning!
It's not all partying though. Val Thorens has developed many facilties over the years, including an indoor leisure centre with pool, extensive shopping, ice-driving, the list goes on!
