For beginner skiers, there can be a lot of daunting tasks to face on one of your first ski holidays. From finding out that there is a LOT of planning that comes with a ski holiday, to putting on skis for the very first time, we know it can all be overwhelming. Friends and family who have skied before are always great to get advice from and many will tell you that a ski in ski out chalet is the way to go! They are not wrong either, it can really make for one of the easiest ski holidays… well that is if the chalet is on a beginner friendly piste of course! To help you find suitable beginner friendly ski chalets, we are here to help! Take a read if you want to see our top picks.
Located directly next to the nursery slopes and only a minute walk from the main ski lifts, this ski in ski out chalet really is one of the best chalets for a first time skier. Let the little ones find their snow feet in the ski school garden while you explore an array of beginner friendly pistes. The resort itself is also very family friendly and has a superb snow record which means it’s an ideal ski resort whether you’re planning to ski over Christmas in the early weeks or head late and go for an Easter ski holiday.
The Chalet at 11° East can accommodate a group of 8-10 guests and is offered with full chalet catering service.
Chalet Sapin de Reberty really does tick all the boxes for a beginner friendly ski chalet. This chalet is located in the 3 Valleys in Reberty, just outside the popular resort of Les Menuires. There are some excellent ski schools on offer here and what’s better is that they meet just outside of the door to your chalet. As the world’s largest ski area you will be sure to have plenty of runs that match your level to explore, and with the high altitude you are looking at one of the more snow sure resorts out there too. Win, win, I’d say!
Sapin de Reberty can be taken both on an exclusive use or shared basis, so even if you just want a room or two you will be more than welcome here.
Chamonix is often mistaken as an advanced skiers destination only. However, this is certainly not the case and Chalet No 5 makes the most of the beginner friendly skiing on offer. This lovely ‘home from home’ chalet sits directly on the blue Aillouds piste in Les Houches. In fact, with a bit of a run up you could probably jump the hedge and land in the hot tub! For the beginner skier you can enjoy the cruisy tree-lined pistes and soft snow to practice your techniques.
Chalet No 5 also comes with a very impressive cinema room and billiards room so the fun doesn’t stop after your day on the piste. Invite your friends, invite your family – this chalet can sleep 10.
Domaine Toit du Monde is an exceptionally well positioned chalet, ski in ski out from two pistes! On one side there is the famous World Cup downhill ‘Coupe du Monde OK’ piste and on the other, the popular green ‘Verte’ slope. For the beginner skiers out there the ‘Verte’ slope is the perfect piste to find your feet.
The Domaine Toit du Monde is not only ski in ski out but also swim in swim out too, with two depth adjustable chalet swimming pools! Ideal for any large group, this chalet sleeps 16 guests.
Boogie on down to Chez Bugi if you are a beginner! This brand new chalet for winter 18/19 has arguably one of the most enviable piste side locations in the 3 Valleys, located at the bottom of the home run piste in St Martin de Belleville. Here, the ski runs are much quieter than those of the busy neighbouring resorts and the home run, blue grade piste, has a very gentle gradient with no scary edges. This is certainly one for young skiers with the ski school meeting point only a stone’s throw away.
Chez Bugi can welcome 12 guests and comes with full gourmet catering and selected complimentary drinks. With the St Martin gondola going overhead and the beginner piste running down next to the chalet, the location is hard to beat.
If you are looking for the ideal family friendly ski chalet in the sought after ski resort of Courchevel 1850, then look no further than Chalet Le Namaste. This ski in ski out chalet is located on the Bellecotte Piste (green run) heading straight down to the Croisette where you will find the main lifts and ski school meeting points. For beginner skiers, we also know that a full day on the pistes can be hard work, so why not enjoy an afternoon in the chalet’s indoor swimming pool, sauna and hammam?
Chalet Le Namaste is the perfect chalet for a small group sleeping 8 – 10 guests.
