      Had a nice skiing holiday for a reasonable price, seek out those hidden extra services to enhance

      Had already booked a skiing holiday with Powder White before reading the reviews on he web. Actually turned out there were only 1 or 2 bad reviews so I went ahead with anticipation and stayed in the Chalet Antares in Courchevel 1650. The chalet was advertised as a 6 person chalet but we found there were 2 extra beds which was a bonus as we could invite friends. The chalet was clean and had an open airy feeling. There was a balcony also which had great views. Everything went smoothly although our TV stopped working on the 2nd day but was immediately replaced. The chalet was in a great location with everything from shops to the ski lift only a few minutes walk away.

      We hired a catered chalet and the food was surprisingly good although the premium wines were a bit expensive which we didnt get but heard it was good from other guests. The chalet was hosted by 2 girls who who were quite nice and funny although a bit young they did a good job. One bug bear I had was there was a bit of noise from a neighbouring chalet but I can't help feeling we were just as noisy with our 3 kids.

      Overall we were happy with our ski holiday and was made to feel welcome by the staff and even other guests were nice whom we invited over for dinner. I only found out they did childcare middle of the way through the week which was a god send but do ask for what extra services they provide as some can be quite useful.

      Chalet Pic Vert was great and staff at Powder White helped organise many areas of our ski holiday

      I booked a ski holiday with Powder White and stayed in a Catered Chalet in Verbier, Switzerland. I booked the chalet Pic Vert online which was easy enough although you do have to pay a deposit when you book. I did end up calling the sales team who helped organise some ski hire and some skiing lessons for the kids. The resort was beautiful and it had just snowed when we arrived. The chalet was only a few minutes walk from the ski lift and the centre of town which made it an ideal location. The chalet was clean and presentable although I wished it was a bit bigger, however it was enough to accommodate 11 of us. There were 6 bedrooms, 5 of which had ensuite bathrooms with 1 main bathroom. We also got Internet and some gaming thrown in to keep the kids occupied.

      All in all I really enjoyed my ski holiday, mainly becuase I did not have to worry about organising anything as the Powder White team helped organise certain aspects of the holiday. Their chalet staff were courteous, although a bit young they were eager to please. The food was better than average although I would like to have greater variety and had to ask for beverages a few times, other than that a very enjoyable experience and plan to book a chalet with Powder White for my next skiing holiday although we will try a different resort.

      Was very happy with the service given by Powder White and the chalet was in a great location

      I went on a Ski Holiday with Powder White Ltd to Val d'Isere in France by booking one of their chalets. I booked my holiday online as the PowderWhite website conveniently allowed me to view available dates with live quotes so was easy to chose a property. I chose to stay in the chalet Appaloosa which accommodated our large group of 11 people. The chalet was clean and the staff were really good, each room also had ensuite bathrooms. We booked a catered chalet so all the cooking and cleaning was done for us allowing us to concentrate on skiing and having a good time. The chalet was in the heart of val d isere which was close to shopping and more importantly right by the ski lifts. All in all we had a good time and was happy with the fact that Powder White took care of holiday extras such as booking us ski lift passes, ski hire and even childcare which was a bonus. I will book again through this comapny becuase they indepently run the chalets and are not agents which means if you do have any problems they get sorted our quickly.
