My son and I decided to go skiing, and asked Aurigny Ski/Zenith Holidays to suggest a resort, chalet, and organise ski hire & lift pass. Katie was excellent, understood exactly what we were after, and suggested the Marmotte room in Chalet Paulette.
The organisation by the Zenith team made the holiday effortless for us - Travel, Chalet, Food, Ski hire, lift pass - all just fell into line.
Chalet Paulette is directly above the ski hire shop, so it's so convenient to get/return hire items. Whilst there are no ensuite rooms in most chalets, the Marmotte room is the only bedroom downstairs, which has an adjacent bathroom and toilet - so is as close as you can get to ensuite! Perfect for us.
Cami was our chalet host - and she was excellent. Dinner was three courses each evening with plenty of wine, with breakfast being both cold selection and cooked. Afternoon tea was always left for our return from skiing each day too. Whilst there were 9 other guests in the chalet too, Cami managed the group very well to ensure that meal times were at a convenient time for all. It's fair to say that the other 9 guests were great fun too!
The resort manager Mark, and resort rep George were available and visited the chalet most days, but were always contactable if anything was needed - a real comfort to ensure that any query can be answered.
The ski lifts are a very short walk from the chalet, which lead to the Alpes d'Huez resort. There is so much skiing available for all levels of experience, making it an ideal resort for all.
Directly opposite the chalet is "O" bar, run by a lovely English lady, and also the Cremaillere which is an excellent French restaurant - ideal for the chalet hosts day off!
We are already considering dates for next year - it is highly likely that we shall be back in Alpes d'Huez, and also highly likely that we will be at Chalet Paulette!

Stayed at Chalet Armonia, Arvoriaz but cannot post there for Zenith, but wanted our appreciation noted.
Brilliant ski holiday for friends and family.
Excellently hosted by Elliott, who could not do enough to help us and make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. As well as providing hearty meals, he organised us and gave lots of advice. he catered for every whim from extra alcohol to getting bruised bodies back on the slopes !!.
Our rep Sarah was also great, making sure everything ran smoothly from pickups on arrival and departure, to organising any extras we wanted (lessons/massages)
Thanks Zenith, Elliott and Sarah
Where to start…. Firstly, best offer on group ski trips by far. The most reasonably priced and best we have experienced. And we have done many! Furthermore dealing with Katie as out first point of contact was an absolute pleasure. She went out of her way with all things organizational including last minute changes and urgent visa requests. Amazing.
On arrival, the chalets Hermoine, Louis and Paullette were clean and comfortable with the most accommodating hosts you could imagine. George, Elliot and Cammie were incredible. Meals were tasty and generous and everyone in our group was well catered for and satisfied. Mark our tour operator went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed whether it was ski passes ASAP on the first day or ad hoc extra lessons when and where required.
Big thank you! We would without doubt use you guys next time!
