We go to Champoluc because it’s easily accessible (we can ski on arrival and departure days); if you go outside holiday time it is uncrowded (last Saturday morning we had slopes to ourselves for 1.5 hours – literally!); there’s some very good skiing (including masses off-piste ); and Ski 2 package takes care of everything.

Lovely quiet village, we didn’t sample the apres-ski so can’t really comment. Possibly not somewhere to come if you want shopping and nightlife, but that suited us perfectly. We liked the relative lack of crowds, despite it’s being half term, and the mix of nationalities, plenty of Italians, which made it feel more authentic than some more famous resorts! The walk to the village from the hotel through the woods was delightful.
The cheeriness of all the ski 2 team was great. The drivers, office staff and the ski rental staff were all unfailingly informative, helpful, polite and endlessly cheerful.
Patric provided us with 10 hours of snowboarding lessons and was absolutely brilliant. He coped with our very mixed experience (or lack of) group and we all found ourselves very excited for the next day of lessons! Very friendly, kind and patient. His English was excellent and we all understood his instruction easily.
The number of staff available when we arrived to sort ski hire etc was wonderful. With small children it is the most stressful bit of the hols and your staff were wonderful.
Office staff also very helpful booking restaurants etc.
Our children were taught by Connell who was wonderful. He was very accommodating about earlier starts and finishing at various different places on the mountain. My children liked him very much and learnt and improved under his guidance. He was an excellent instructor and dealt with two lively children extremely well.
We’ve had a very good holiday and were pleasantly surprised by the lack of lift queues during the busy February half term as compared with the French resorts.
Simon has established a nice team of helpful and skilled people who seem to like what they do and like each other. The atmosphere is a pretty cheerful one.
Byron was excellent. He took us from complete novices to confidently tackling challenging red runs by the end of Day 5!
