Once you have chosen your chalet, we can help you sort all the extra details of your trip in advance of your stay to ensure you have the best and most stress-free holiday possible.
Below you will find a brief overview of all the elements that build a ski holiday, with a rundown of all the services we offer and advice we can give. This includes Food and Drink, Getting to Resort, Lift Passes, Equipment Hire, and Ski and Snowboard Lessons.
Food and Drink
If you are staying in one of our catered chalets, breakfast and afternoon tea with a freshly baked cake will be served daily. A four-course dinner is served six nights of the week for our chalets in Tignes les Brévières, and five nights a week in our Val d’Isere chalets. Our dinner is accompanied by unlimited French wine, and includes a locally-sourced cheese board to finish. On the first and last night, a canapé and prosecco reception will precede dinner.
If you are staying in one of our self-catered chalets, we can advise on the best nearby supermarkets. We can also make great restaurant recommendations, whether you are staying in a self-catered chalet or it is your chalet night off.
Our professionally qualified chefs can cater for all dietary requirements and can also take food-preferences into account in their cooking. We do just ask that you let our reservations team know about any dietary requirements or allergies in advance of your arrival.
For full information on our catering and for sample menus see here.
Getting to Resort
Although we do not offer package deals with flights included, we can give you advice on the closest airports to fly to. Or, if you are looking for an alternative to flying, we can advise on busses, trains, and driving routes for getting to resort.
We can also help you book your transfer from an airport, train station, or bus station. We have a selection of partner transfer companies we work with whom we can request a quote from on your behalf to find the best deal. We can then put you in touch with them once you have chosen your preferred transfer.
We also can recommend some online tools for journey planning so you can book the most cost-effective journey to resort.
To ask us to help you organise your transfer to resort, please get in touch with our reservations team at email@example.com.

Prebook Lift Passes
You can book your lift passes with us in advance of your arrival, and we will activate these cards for you and have them ready for when you arrive in resort. We offer no extra charge for this service, so our prices are the same as the prices at the resort lift pass offices. However, booking through us is more efficient and gives you one less job to do on your first day in the resort!
An adult 6-day lift pass for the Winter 2020-21 season was €315, with prices for Winter 2021-22 not yet confirmed. However, there are many different lengths of lift passes you can buy through us, including flex-passes which gives you a one-day break at some point during your stay.
We can also book family passes for you if you have anyone in your group under the age of 21.
For lift pass prices and information on how to book with us see here.
Prebook Equipment Hire
At Chardons, we get great discounts from top ski rental shops in the resort.
We can advise you on the most appropriate skis or snowboard for your ability in advance of your arrival and provide you with quotes from our different rental providers.
Then, booking through us means you can take advantage of our great discounts, and have your rentals all paid for and ready once you arrive in the resort.
You can choose to collect your equipment from the rental shop or have it delivered to your chalet on the day of your arrival.
For full information on our different ski rental providers and for prices see here.
Ski and Snowboard Lessons
We work with several companies which offer ski and snowboard lessons, guiding tours, and other mountain-based lessons.
Depending on what type of lesson you are after, we can recommend which company would be the best option for you.
We can also ask for quotes from all our partner ski schools for you to decide which you would like to book.
