According to the Ski Club of Great Britain, catered chalets in European ski resorts are the most popular ski lodging choice capturing nearly 40 percent of the market.
Across the Alps, the hills are alive with the sound of happy skiers. Why are they so happy? Because when they woke in the cozy bed of their chalet, their hot breakfast was waiting for them in the kitchen. After a day on the slopes, they returned to the warm chalet for afternoon tea and beverages. Later in the evening, they are treated to a multi-course, gourmet meal prepared by their personal chef.
No shopping for groceries, no waiting for coffee to brew, no slaving away in the kitchen.
Is this exclusively a European phenomenon? No.
Yet it is a mystery why the concept remains so foreign on U.S. soil.
Moving Mountains Chalets helped introduce the U.S. to this type of ski vacation when we opened our first chalet in 1998. Since then our guests who have experienced a catered ski chalet say they cannot imagine a ski vacation any other way.
Our friendly chalet team will help you get the most out of your vacation by taking all the work out of it. They greet your family or group at the Steamboat Springs/Hayden Airport and whisk you to your chalet. They also take care of all the little details so you have no worries. Then there is your own personal chef who prepares delicious healthy meals throughout your stay.
The catered chalet is a great choice for families and groups because everyone is well taken care of under one roof. At Moving Mountains Chalets, this option is offered in luxury vacation homes ranging from three to eight bedrooms that can accommodate families or groups of up to 24.
This package is a great value for your stay. If you take out all the costs you would otherwise incur, such as food for everyone and rental cars, the additional cost of this package is typically less than $50 per person per day. Factor in your personal time savings and it’s a no-brainer.
A word of warning – this will change your view on ski vacations forever! And in the US, you may find your choice of resorts limited to the few locations, like Steamboat Springs, that have catered chalets.
