The range of chalets within the Ski Olympic collection is constantly being upgraded and added to. Currently, there are just 2 chalet hotels available from Ski Olympic.
Ski Olympic operate chalet holidays in Les Arcs & La Plagne, a small programme like this means that staff recruitment each season can afford to be very selective and only the best season staff get to join the company.

Good food and wine are an essential part of any good skiing holiday. Ski Olympic start the day with a full cooked breakfast, this is available on 5 mornings, with a continental breakfast available on the other 2 days (departure day and chalet staff’s day off) and consists of fresh fruit, cereals, breads, jams boiled eggs, porridge, yoghurts, tea and coffee. Cooked option includes bacon, eggs, sausage, mushrooms, hash browns and tomatoes, a perfect set you up for a day on the slopes.
At the end of the day, staff will have prepared home backed tea and cakes to tide you over until the evening meal.
The evening meal is always a big part of a catered chalet holiday, a chance to recount the day’s wipe-outs and enjoy a delicious 3-course evening meal with wine. On the last night, a cheese board is also available.
Feedback from our clients has always been very positive about the standard and quality of the food in a ski Olympic chalet.
