Recent guest review

A fabulous hotel. Friendly, charming – rooms are cosy, warm, plenty of hot water! Staff are incredibly friendly, cheerful and helpful. Food is amazing – and amazing value: four courses every night for dinner, brilliant breakfast spread with home made cakes etc. We stayed over new Year and enjoyed the special meal – six courses, champagne, all the trimmings. Everything home made and delicious. Champoluc is a lovely village too

Monterosa Terme Spa Complex

This week Christina and Jenny, part of our resort team in Champoluc, went on a little mission to check out the Monterosa Terme Spa and report back to you. If you’ve chosen to stay in Champoluc with Ski 2 you too will have access to Monterosa Terme – a luxurious spa with heated pools and relaxation rooms nestled in the valley at the end of the village.

Entering through the reception area, the girls’ first impression was of the local contemporary art hung around the walls. The reception staff are all multi-lingual and ready to help you to hire a towel, robe and slippers for just five euros or you can bring your own from your hotel.

Once inside, Christina and Jenny began with the thermal pool journey, dipping their toes in the salt water pool, then they stretched out in the large heated pool and dived under the water to emerge outside surrounded by snow and ice.

Next to the pools is a relaxation lounge where you can curl up with a good book and enjoy a view of the snowy mountains. There is a café/bar too, where you and your family can enjoy the complementary buffet or purchase something special with a tap of your wristband and pay later.

For just 12 euros, Ski 2 customers can escape the children and venture into the adults only ‘wellness suite’, where two wood-lined saunas, a Turkish aromatherapy steam room and a Hamman with salt scrub await you. Not to mention a circular hot tub with a domed ceiling, monsoon showers and hot and cold therapy pools. The girls would particularly recommend the second cosy relaxation room, which offers you a further quiet space with unbeatable views, free tea and fruit, loungers and swinging egg chairs to while away a few more hours in.

Jenny and Christina loved it so much that they treated themselves to membership for the season! So if you’d like to give the Monterosa Terme Spa a try, just pop into the office in Champoluc where the team will sort you out with your spa voucher.

A Week in the Life of a Ski 2 Penguin

What fun will your little ones have while you are skiing?

Arriving at the hotel

After a comfortable (and probably sleepy) journey from the airport, you and your little penguin will arrive at your hotel, find your room and get settled in for the night.

arriving at the Penguin club in Champoluc

Arriving at the Penguin Club

The next morning, one of our Ski 2 Resort Ambassadors will take you over the bridge and up the snowy road to the Penguin Club. Surrounded by trees and snow, there’s lots of outdoor fun to be had if you are lucky enough to have sunny weather.

Drawing at the Penquin club in ChampolucIndoor Activities

There are plenty of toys, games, jigsaws, books and DVDs to choose from. If your little penguin likes to get creative, they can colour in their own penguin to add to our penguin scene on the wall.

Outdoor Activities

Sledging anyone? There are plenty of sledges for all the penguins. There are also some strap on skis if they are too small for ski school, but would like to have a go. And, of course, lots of other fun outdoor toys to play with. Or they could always build a snowman!

Have a go at skiing?

For the bigger penguins, we offer Penguin Club + ski. Your penguin will spend most of the day having fun at the Penguin Club and then one of our dedicated nannies, who is also a qualified ski instructor, will take them up the mountain to learn how to ski. Your penguin will first need to get kitted up in ski hire…

…they will then take the gondola up to Crest, where they can play on the nursery slope.

Tired?

After all that excitement, it might be time to curl up with a hot chocolate or have a nap in the Penguin Club cot room.

Ski 2 Countries

skiers

Excited for your next family ski holiday but unsure whether to stick with Champoluc or explore France? Perhaps you already know you love the Portes du Soleil, but you’d also like to explore Italy? Or maybe you’ve never been to either? A Ski 2 Countries holiday could be for you!

Les GetsNew-this-season, Ski 2 now operates in the authentic French village of Les Gets. Just one hour from Geneva, the town has a vibrant programme of activities and events for children and adults. You’ll have access to 120km of skiing in the Portes du Soleil area and at the end of the day you can ski down into the village. Ski 2 has two catered chalets, where our friendly British staff will be on hand to make your stay comfortable and prepare you tasty meals, and one self-catered apartment, all within a few metres of the lift so you can get each day off to a flying start and enjoy après-ski without worrying about getting home at the end of the day.

Why not treat yourself to lunch at Lodge Le Chasse Montagne? On the ski slopes, this beautiful lodge restaurant with 360⁰ fireplace serves delicious food in a sumptuously themed atmosphere. Don’t miss the strip lights that make you feel all powerful as they light up at your foot’s command!

When you’ve had your fill of French cheese, wine and rolling pastures, a beautiful drive with one of our transfer drivers (who know these mountains like the backs of their hands) winds its way up the valley and through the Mont Blanc tunnel. You’ll enjoy fantastic views of the Valle d’Aosta before taking a left up the tributary Ayas Valley and alighting in the pretty Italian village of Champoluc. There you will be greeted by our resort staff and have access to our ski hire facilities and the Ski 2 office for all your queries.

Your first ride up the mountain will reward you with views of the Matterhorn and you’ll be free to ski across three valleys. Pristine pistes with no crowds, bombardinos (avocaat/eggnog and brandy) with your lunch and you can ski into the village at the end of the day. Lift passes included, British ski instructors if you need a helping hand, free shuttles around the village and access to the Penguin Club for the little ones.

Why not have your cake and eat it too?
