We have responded to your cries for a St Anton chalet and rustled up a little gem. In fact, not just one gem but two. Haus Gamskar and neighbour, Haus Hochkar, are only a short slide on skis to the main Nasserein lift, nursery slopes, ski school and kid’s kindergarten. If you are going to travel hundreds of miles from the UK to ski, you might as well travel an extra few hundred yards and stay close to the slopes.

Haus Gamskar has been painstakingly tailored to satisfy the modern-day skier. No cheesy Alpine kitsch here, just warmth, comfort, space and a cracking location. Big bedrooms, smart bathrooms (including heated walls behind the towel rails … clever eh), a jumbo living area and stacks of hot water.

The bars and restaurants of Nasserein are a quick toboggan ride or few hundred yard walk away and the infamous Tom Dooley’s Bar is next door but one. For the more adventurous, the seductive buzz of central St Anton nightlife is a ten-minute stroll away. A great choice for those who like the click of bindings a few steps from the door.

All rooms in Haus Gamskar can be made up as Twin or Double beds and have plenty of room for a cot. Thanks to an additional single sofa bed (charged at half the adult price) this chalet can sleep 8 - 9 guests

LOCATION

A short glide on skis from the lifts, kindergarten, ski school and nursery slopes, a 250m walk from the ski shop, bars and restaurants in Nasserein and a 10-minute stroll into the heart of St Anton.

Our Executive Chef is passionate about food and hugely sensitive to the appetite of a hungry skier whilst considering a balanced diet. The new and refined 2014/15 menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.

All catered ski chalets with this operator include:

  • Continental breakfast with a cooked option on 6 mornings
  • Afternoon tea will be left in the chalet for you to help yourself to freshly made cake or biscuits, bread & jams, selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate
  • Canapés on the first and last evening
  • 3-course evening meal (6 nights) followed by cheese board and coffee
  • A choice of red and white wine is served throughout dinner

If you are staying in one of our larger CLUB chalets then your chef will be offering canapés and a choice of menu on 6 evenings; a little more choice to pander the penchant of everyone in the party.

Our three hotels, Altitude Lodge in Les Gets, Hotel Montjola in St Anton and Hotel Theodul in Lech, include dinner and cooked breakfast on 7 days.

Sample menu to whet your appetite

The dishes above are examples of what you can expect on the menu, please note it is not a confirmed menu for the upcoming season.

Special dietary requests can be catered for, please advise at the time of booking.

Choose alternative dishes...

Many of our guests have commented that occasionally, after a hard day skiing (and often quite a substantial lunch on the mountain), they would prefer to see a more simple dish on the menu, or maybe a lighter option.

We’ve listened to your requests and can now offer the following menu choices which can be ‘switched in’ from our standard menu plan.

Simply select the dish you wish to switch (listed below 1-5), and select the dish you wish to replace it with (listed below A-G).

  1. Coq au Vin Blanc, served with Hasselback Potatoes, Vichy Carrots & Garlic Green Beans
  2. Teriyaki Beef, served with Coconut Rice & Stir-fried Vegetables
  3. Confit Duck Leg with Lentils & Cherry Vincotto, served with Sautéed Leeks & Broccoli
  4. Fish Pie served with Peas & Mangetout
  5. Pork Tenderloin & Boudin Noir, served with Apple Puree, Garlic Potatoes, Savoy Cabbage & Gravy

‘Switch’ in choices (LO = light option) ….

  1. Tartiflette with Charcuterie and green salad
  2. Gourmet burgers with chunky chips
  3. Homemade Lasagne and green salad
  4. Savoyard Salad (LO)
  5. Pan-fried Sea Bream with sizzled ginger, chilli & red onion (LO)
  6. Lemon Baked chicken and warm quinoa salad (LO)
  7. Vietnamese Chicken & Mint Salad (LO)

Important notes: Dinner on the first Sunday evening cannot be switched. This is only available for whole chalet bookings and the whole group must all agree on the ‘switch’ i.e. only one dish can be served each night (vegetarians/ special dietary requirements will of course still be catered for). Menu switches must be advised no later than 2 weeks prior to travel in order for us to pass on the details to your chalet host. No limit to switches, you can switch just one, or all 5 meals.

Special requests

We do understand a holiday can sometimes be stressful particularly if you, or one of your family have food allergies or special dietary requirements. Our mission is simple; to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible. So, to that end we will do everything we can to cater for your needs. Whilst our menu is planned, it is not set in stone, we will always do our best to accommodate preferences and requests.

Unfortunately, most ski resorts simply do not offer the huge selection of Gluten, Lactose or Dairy free products available in UK supermarkets. That said, if you have any dietary requests, food intolerances or food allergies, we will do our upmost to plan the menu to suit your needs.

Have special dietary requests? In order to plan the menu and source relevant ingredients it is important that you advise us at the time of booking (or at least two weeks before you depart for your holiday). If you have any questions or concerns, one of our Executive Chefs would be more than happy to speak with you personally to ensure you have the confidence we can deliver a chalet holiday to remember. Please call 020 8313 3999 if you wish to discuss your dietary requirements.

Sample children's menu

Our chalet hosts serve high tea for children around 5.30-6pm. We require all children under 12 to take high tea unless you book the whole chalet. If you book the whole chalet and would rather your children eat with you later then please advise us at the time of booking along with any dietary requirements your child may have.

Our children's menus are very adaptable and the chalet host will discuss with you on arrival to tailor meals to your children's liking.

  • Children’s tartiflette

Our wines are selected by our Chalet Sommelier, Xavier Rousset. Chief Sommelier at the Hotel du Vin from 1999 to 2004 and Ruinart UK Sommelier of the Year in 2002, Xavier then became the youngest Master Sommelier in the world. After working as Head Sommelier at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Xavier opened his own restaurant, Texture, with Head Chef, Agnar Sverrisson in 2007. We are all privileged to enjoy Xavier’s advice and share in his passion.
