Winter at Chalet Pelerin
Think of the Alps, and think of skiing. The French Alps have a reputation for easy-access powder skiing and plenty of off-piste runs. Whether by helicopter, ski lift or randonneé, you’ll be smiling, smiling, smiling. Locals have been skiing these “hills” for centuries, and the tradition is part of the fun.
Nothing quite beats clicking in after a heli-lift. The Valgrisenche Valley has incredible glaciated runs. You’ll be right on the Italian border. The relief is so massive your legs may scream for reprieve after your first 5,000-foot descent. But once you spy your next line from the chopper, adrenaline kicks in and the next run may beat the first. Ski. Repeat.
Legendary off-piste runs promise endless steep and deep lines. With so much terrain, we often remind clients to leave some gas in the tank—this terrain has “best-day-ever” potential written all over it
Simply spoken, on piste means ski trail. There are endless trails and ski lifts, routes, restaurants and multiple ski resort connections in the valley. The Chalet is surrounded by seven world-class ski resorts—all 30 minutes away or less. We choose the day’s best conditions prior to even stepping out the front door.
