    A very enjoyable, relaxed but also luxurious holiday. A spacious chart with a great view of La Face. All the entertainment the kids wanted in the chalet and downstairs. The hot tubs are a great addition and the robes where very useful. Food was excellent in quality and unstinting in quantity. Nothing was too much for Molly. Well done to Murray, Fiona, Amanda, Harry, Callum & driver Harry - thanks for looking after us Thank you

    This is our third visit to Val d'Isere with VIP and we always have an amazing time. Molly did a great job and was very friendly and incredibly accommodating with our kids (who are young so quite hard work!). She always arrived at work with a smile on her face and nothing seemed too much trouble (we recommend you give her a raise to hang onto her as she's a really good one!!!). We're sad to be leaving but will definitely be back next year.

    VIP just blew my mind

    We stayed in the Maple chalet of Aspen Lodge in the last week of February 2015. I have to admit we set a few challenges for the VIP team from Day One in Maple Lodge. And I was heartily impressed by the results. 1. Two birthdays in our group over the week. We were treated to champagne, balloons, cake and candles by our spectacularly good chalet host, Molly. On top of that, Molly happily pandered to our favourite foods (like a French Toast breakfast for me). It made us feel really special. 2. One of our group broke their wrist (one hour into their first ever snowboarding lesson - legend). Kat, one of the senior managers, made a point of following up to ensure that we had the right flight and insurance documentation from the hospital- which we didn’t- and she was brilliant at collecting this all for us. 3. Some of our group’s bags went missing at Geneva airport on arrival (we travelled with Swiss Air). This meant one of our group had no ski boots or warm ski clothes whatsoever. VIP really came to the rescue here. They chased the airport repeatedly on our behalf. And whilst we were waiting, managed to source a full set of ski clothes and ski boot rental so our friend wouldn’t miss out at all whilst the bags were found. Kat even redirected calls overnight in case the airport courier arrived at stupid-o’clock, to make sure we got the bags as soon as possible. 4. We even got a call from Fiona in Concierge once we’d returned to England to say that a credit card that we thought had been lost had been found and would we like it shipped back to the UK. THE PEOPLE I’m sometimes a little skeptical about reviews that name drop the whole way through, but we encountered such a wide range of quality, helpful, friendly staff that I’m going to do it anyway. We had a lot of interaction with the VIP team – in part because of the events above, but also because there was always someone around the lodge happy to ask about your day, discuss weather conditions and good routes and tips for the best Apres. Special shout-outs to the following: Kat, who was so willing to try and solve any big problems we had; Murray (Hot Tub Uni-Cycling impressario), who was consistently positive and always there when you needed him; Harry, Paddy and Fiona at Concierge, all ready with a smile and a cold drink after a long day. But top of the list was Molly, our chalet host. She was AMAZING. Molly was hugely warm, welcoming and endearing. She was always happy to change the menu to address our more fussy requests, joined in with our chats and lifted the spirits of the chalet when we were exhausted. The particular tastes and demands of our seasoned skiers did not phase her. Little touches like remembering who likes what, asking what we had been up to with a genuine interest and joining in our fun were really special. I especially recommend her Banana cake – muy bien Molly. She truly felt like the 9th chalet guest and she totally made our week. Especially when Otis the Ostrich joined us for morning drinks. VIP are VERY lucky to have her. THE CHALET Maple chalet was very clean and well maintained. I made a point of snooping around looking for faults but I honestly couldn’t find any (even the microwave looked as if it had been vacuumed). I’ve seen some comments about noise in Aspen Lodge. In Maple, it was completely silent. I couldn’t even hear the guests in other rooms, let alone outside noise. The chalet was very warm sometimes, but fortunately it was a simple matter of opening the balcony door to introduce some natural air-conditioning. There was a huge TV and good music system. Make sure you bring some tunes on your iPhone to play at dinner. Abba was very popular in our chalet. LOCATION The location is great for the town of Val d’Isere. Its slap-bang in the middle of the main street, and less than one minute from the Ski bus. Sadly, its not Ski-In, Ski-Out and is about 5-10 minutes stroll up a slight uphill to the piste, which takes a bit of getting used to at this altitude. On the plus side, it gets your heart pumping in the morning before Ski School. The ski hire shops are all relatively close by to Aspen. We got a great deal with Intersport Pitte on skis, boots and helmet hire for the week (three minutes walk from the lodge). About half the price of that recommended by VIP. I suggest you shop around using the power of Google. Just check it’s not too far to walk to collect on day one, as you stagger back with boots, ski’s, helmet, etc… Speaking of Ski School, we did three days with TDC. They were reasonably priced, and our instructor Giles was a real gent. We took the coach with VIP. It took c. 3 hours each way. A combination of snow, landslides and car crashes means you can’t guarantee a journey any quicker unless you have the spare cash for a helicopter! Here are a few other recommendations from me: 1. There are free drinks in the communal lounge from 8am to 8pm at Aspen Lodge – beer, wine, tea, coffee- plus Sky TV, pool table and comfy seats. There was always room to sit when we visited and it’s sometimes nice to meet some fellow lodgers. 2. There are three communal hot-tubs and at least one was always available. Pump up the heat, turn on the bubbles, get some (free) drinks in plastic from Concierge and relax. If you are looking for more fun, consider having a “snow-bath” on the terrace and then diving into a hot-tub. The hot/cold/hot feeling is a real treat. 3. If you can, try to book a complete chalet filled with your friends. You’ll see a few comments on Trip Advisor where people didn’t appreciate the behavior of fellow guests in a “split” chalet. The truth is that these chalets are quite intimate unless you want to stay in your bedroom. The living space is all open-plan and geared up to sociability. So either fill a chalet or accept that you may not all have the same attitude to an enjoyable week! 4. Book a restaurant on the Chalet Host day off (Wednesday I think) – otherwise they will all be full at 8pm. Your host will do this for you if you ask. We were recommended Restaurant du Grand Cocor, which was just a 5 minute walk from the chalet. A night to remember crammed with Snails, Frog’s Legs, Fondue, Raclette cheese and a Hot Stone for cooking meats. You should also check out the Creperie Au Grand Marnier – an encyclopedic selection of sweet crepes, and you get to pour on as much free Grand Marnier liqueur as your heart desires. 5. There’s an honesty bar/fridge in the chalets filled with coke, Evian, chocolate, beers, etc. all for 1 euro each, which seemed pretty reasonable. My tip is if you have a particular preference, let your chalet host know and they can top up the fridge. We added Red Bulls, Prosecco and Perrier to our fridge – it wasn’t a problem. Of course, all red and white wine served with dinner is free and free-flowing. 6. If you are keen on Apres, try CoCoRico on the piste between 5pm and 8pm. It was absolutely wild. We much preferred it to the slightly pretentious and aggressive feel of La Folie Douce. Overall, a wonderful trip, and a wonderful lodge.

    Having been with VIP SKI before, we did not hesitate to book another holiday. Molly was our host for the week, attentive but a little forgetful! Her food was great, and although we never went hungry - the portions were sometimes a little on the smaller side! The afternoon cakes were great to come home too, Molly you are a great baker! Chalet was a good location, close to shops and not too far from the slopes. Concierge was great, free beer/hot drinks and the hottubs were lovely to lounge in after a great day in the snow!

    I never normally write reviews but my friend and I had such a great week with the best chalet host ever (and we have stayed in quite a few ski chalets between us) that we felt compelled to post a review. From the moment we stepped off the bus in the resort, we were met by a smiling Molly from Maple suite who eased the strain from a long coach transfer from Grenoble airport. We can't praise Molly enough... Great cook (especially loved her scrambled eggs) great cakes, great everything really and a really warm person that she just felt like an extension to our group. She is a great asset to VIP ski. We highly recommend Molly and everyone we came across at the concierge in Aspen Lodge were helpful and friendly. Diane & Ayshea

    We had a brilliant week staying in Aspen Lodge. Great location and spacious, comfortable apartment. We can't speak highly enough of our lovely chalet host, Jenny, as well as our fabulous nanny, Polly. Jenny was a wonderful host, great company and prepared delicious food and baking every day. Polly was absolutely amazing with the children - they had a ball! We think our children even preferred hanging out with Polly more than the skiing part of the holiday!! The reception/concierge area was a great addition to the accommodation, a place to get the newspapers, play pool, watch sport or have a drink. Concierge staff were very helpful with anything we required like booking tables for lunch/dinner. It was our first time in Aspen Lodge and we would definitely go back there.

What more could we want? The resort was fabulous (my 6th time in this area). Not disappointed as the snow was good enough and we had 3 days each of blue sky and snow. Varied skiing but ticked my boxes for certain. My technique and confidence improved as the week went on. And another week without injury to me! Yeh!

    Overall a very enjoyable week at aspen lodge. Our host Isla is an excellent cook and kept our suite very clean all week. Xmas dinner was very capably provided for and nothing was too much trouble for her. In the numerous vip trips we have made I would say she is the best we have had. Chalet facilities were good, we especially liked the complimentary afternoon drinks downstairs which are a nice alternative to après ski. I think our only issue would be the transfer and specifically the awful quality of the coach used. The driver and our guide Sean were fine but the coach was so uncomfortable - cramped and with toilets with no toilet paper or running water. This seems to be a regular problem and we would urge you to resolve it for the future.

    Great Apartment, Fabulous Location, Brilliant Host. Weather was great and the whole experience was most relaxing with the mix of putting us with a similar family whom the adults and children got on with very well. The host was very engaging on all levels and could never do enough for adults and kids. The only thing that would add to a better experience would be for our ski's and poles to be taken to the slope as this was a chore especially with the children.

    I have been using YSE for 10 years. Last year the chalet girl was 5 minutes late in the morning so John docked her day off. My 19 yr old son thought that outrageous and said he didn't want to go with YSE again. Last year you bailed out a friend of mine in March (Lydia) who was with someone else in a terrible chalet. She said you were great so I thought I'd give you a try. Chalet excellent great location, good size, great facilities (jacuzzi , bar and pool downstairs great). Ways to improve: Whilst john's commentary on the bus up is cheesy it is human interaction. Your man on the bus is not experienced as does the bare minimum. Could tell us about the weather conditions, honestly, could talk about different ways and people to hire skis from(did not mention the 25% off at snowberry for instances). The double decker bus is cramped. Such is life, but don't understand how John can afford a more spacious one. The French never turn on the air on. We had to ask. With only one chalet girl it is hard to get all the meals out warm. John has two girls even for a chalet of 8. It makes a lot of difference. She was great as she had to do two vegetarian dishes too. We often play games, we couldn't find anything in the chalet, not even a pack of cards. Overall a great experience, these are just tweaks.

    Came on a short 3 night break with 3 friends, the chalet is vey well located and the new hot tubs are a great addition as is the lounge area in the reception since my last stay at Aspen Lodge. Only negative is the heat in the chalet which I don't feel has been addresses as VIP say it has. Our chalet host Molly was great and helped to make our stay most enjoyable - shame she could not bring the snow !!

Sam and Rhianna interacted really well with the children and they all had so much fun making pizzas and cup cakes. I really recommend Sam and Rhianna!! Sam was particularly good leading the children and organising the chalet to a high standard. Well done team!

    We've had another great week with VIP in Aspen Lodge this March, having also stayed here last year. Our host Eliza was a delight, looking after us impeccably - nothing was too much trouble. Food was great - the cookies on the last day being a particular highlight for both myself and our 20 month-old son Jacob. Jacob has also had an amazing week with VIP nanny Yas, who organised lots of fun activities and quickly quelled the expected tears when Mummy and Daddy left on the first day. Both Eliza and Yas have also been stalwarts responding to Jacob's many requests to be sung to! Only minor point is that the chalet is very warm - as chalets tend to be. This was greatly helped by the provision of a flat sheet as an alternative to the duvet - but given that this is an expected issue it would be better if these were available immediately rather than only once requested. Overall a fantastic week, thank you!

A few minor points. The beds are way too hard. I like a hard bed but found it difficult to sleep on these beds especially when you have skiing aches and pains. One kitchen roll a week is not enough.

    The last day of your holiday always comes around too quick however as my weekend treat i went for the cooked breakfast opposed to the beautifully made porridge. Not only was there bacon, tomato and sausage I had the most perfect poached eggs. After a sad return from the the last run on the slopes there was a surprise on the afternoon cakes.....death by chocolate cookies, and they really were, one was perfect and too if you dare. A last night in the chalet while overlooking the flood lite face, drinking champers and tucking into canapés, 3 variations on the canapés for those who had individual food preferences, imy never asked about these but just automatically prepared the options. The table for dinner was prepared with candles lite, most colourful and well presented starter that any a la carte restaurant would be proud to present. A main dish of duck cooked to each persons preferred colour, accompanied by fresh broccoli, potatoes, roasted onions and sautéed leeks, a divine dish for a final feast. If the above was not enough to follow was a citrus lemon cheese cake with each guest having a personalised caramelised letter of their name presented on their individual dessert. A perfect finish with the cheese board and crackers however we do have some cracker monsters in the chalet who managed to eat through the supplies before the end of the week so imy noticing this never said a word but made sure , even if it was out of her own pocket, that we had enough crackers for our final after dinner cheeses. Imy has a personality and genuine kind nature that will make any guest feel that no request is ever too much bother. She has a natural enthusiasm for hospitality and a visible passion in baking where I would have loved to stay longer to see her individually flair. She really will do anything and everything to make sure your stay with VIP is one where you truly feel like the VIP.

    From the booking over the phone to the reception in resort, VIP promised a memorable week skiing. Writing this review now, I can confirm we have had that and more. From check-in to check-out, we've had the most amazing experience, obviously honed from a well delivered number of previous seasons. Our welcome was, warm, sincere and informative from our 'Chalet Host', Sam. From introducing the resort, the opportunities, and services and taking our orders/requirements for morning wake up drinks, Sam was the consummate professional. 6 days on, VIP, have been amazing, from the supporting staff, to general Management, that we found, out on resort, offering advice on random pistes, our experience has been maximised. We will be coming back for sure. Show us the booking list for 2015. Regs. Andre, Paddy & Andy.

    A happy morning with cooked breakfast all round and even though some of us had been a little slower than others Imy passed on the message from one group to another of where we had to meet in order to have the rest of today together. The freshly made cake and beds were to every day standard on return from the slopes. This evenings menus was Devine! Lamb with honey roast veg and cauliflower purée, the lamb was cooked to perfection and the cut was beautiful. Dinner was finished off with a lovely cheese board and even an extra cheese of the local favourite. Imy made sure the chalet looked its best before offering coffee and tea to finish but we all agreed to just leave the wine out and for imy to have a good night, as we know we would, with all the laughter around the table.

    Although we had no imy yesterday it was like she never left us. Morning wake up as normal and breakfast with a smile. Although we were a little slow and tired this morning imy never made us feel rushed, even if we did come to breakfast after the time allocated, it was no bother and she made us our own personal requests regardless of us encroaching on her own time. We were taken through the evenings menu, at breakfast, but unfortunately the majority were not keen, however this was no trouble to imy she gave us various options and a after group review we went for the special lemon chicken with couscous salad, which mark my words, was far better than you could imagine. After skiing we indulged in the unlimited free beer and wine downstairs in the bar and on seeing imy in passing she still made the effort to say hi and ask how out day had been. Back for dinner and we had two new guests mid week however the dynamics of the group did not change, imy introduced us all to each other and the night of wine and food went on like as if we had all met on day one. Around the table we shared stories of the snow and all decided where tomorrow's slope plan would be in order to share the adventures round the table over more wine and fabulous food tomorrow.

    Pleasantly woken up like clock work this morning with a beside drink of your favourite morning refreshment. Breakfast was greeted with a bright and fresh happy smile from Imy, a full English with a special extra on the plate which was mentioned in passing the night before. On return from the slopes was a lovely note personally hand written by imy to welcome you home with home made cakes and drinks. After a relax and freshen up in a lovely cleaned room, beds made, bathrooms cleaned and towels on the radiator so fluffy and fresh after a well needed shower. When advise on the evenings menu in the morning in order to cater for any particular taste, I must admit I was apprehensive of the 'parsnip and apple soup' however I could not have been more wrong and wished there was more than just as a starter. The main was a beautiful pork with stir fry noodle and veg. It was a perfect light dinner after over indulging on the first couple of days and night of the local cuisine of pastries, bread, cheese and more. The wine complimented the food, as it has every night. Imy kept a great atmosphere with all from wake up to turn down down to make sure every night was one to laugh and smile.

    1st day Reception in Grenoble by rep as we walked through arrivals, very quick and direct, straight to our coach. There was no wait on the coach and very direct route. A comfort mid way stop was at a perfect time and then straight onto the val. During journey we were informed at all times of journey time, arranged ski hire, lift pass and all very pleasant. On arrival we were greeted by own our dedicated chalet host who personally took us to the chalet. Imy was so welcoming, bright and happy. Arrived in chalet with cakes, coffee and even the preferred sports channel to watch the dedicated game that day. Champagne! Canapés and the most welcoming first night dinner. The house wine was lovely with a good choice of two or wine list for even the most particular of choice.

    Met at the airport by Jack, he was very welcoming and we were kindly offered water, chocolate and fruit. Good transfer. Spacious and comfortable chalet, Imogen our chalet host offered us tea and cake (amazing Guinness cake) followed by champagne and canapés that evening. Delicious, consistent food all week, very good timings. Best food I have personally ever had in a chalet. Favourite meals: chocolate chilli pots, chicken saltimbocca, beef tagine, beetroot and goats cheese stack. Offered to have rooms cleaned every morning. Rooms cleaned to a high standard. Imogen was extremely friendly, creating a very welcoming and warm atmosphere in the chalet. She made our week very enjoyable. Easy access boot room. The DVD hiring system could be improved with a one night rental policy, as we were waiting all week for a particular film. Great having such a central location. A brilliant holiday, would definitely book with VIP in the future.

    Wow! The skiing has been incredible as always, however our chalet host Sam was a star! He was an absolute delight to have around coincidently his cooking was awesome -recipes I want to hunt down! His constant smiley face and fun personality meant that we could just accept him as part of the group as well as his cheese jokes. Overall Sam added a lot to our experience and we are already talking about coming back next year for pure fourth time! So sad to leave but all good things come to an end.

    Aspen Lodge a great choice for families/friends with older children - great central location & the added bonus of the communal bar/pool table. Our host, Joe, was brilliant, totally tuned in our requirements and really added to our holiday experience. He was great with our children, good fun and game for a laugh. The food he cooked was always delicious, presented beautifully and good portion size. Anyone staying in a chalet he's hosting will be truly spoiled. Mention should also be made of the concierge & driving team, particularly Harry and Sam. Charming people who really gave us the impression nothing was too much. We'd highly recommend VIP, and Aspen Lodge in particular. From initial booking through to our stay in resort we've had a wonderful holiday.

    This is our 3rd holiday with VIP each time in a different chalet. The chalet itself is nice but the kitchen is very small for someone to cater for 8 people in. It is the smallest kitchen of the chalets we have stayed in. Two of the knobs on the hob are broken and have not been fixed despite Eliza asking. My only complaint is about the cleanliness of the crockery and cutlery. I am not sure if it is a problem with the dishwasher, but we did keep having to rewash items because cleanliness was not to an acceptable standard. It would also have been nice to share with a family with similar aged children rather than 2 couples.

    I have already reviewed our holiday which was great in itself. However we were really dissatisfied with the transfers. For a company named "VIP" wedging people onto a bus made for hobbits and children doesn't befit the name or the price of the holiday. We had more leg room on our flight which was only an hour and twenty minutes. 3 hrs on the bus to and from Grenoble was torture.

    We have pondered the issue of coach transfers long into the night and spoken to our guests at length over the years. We have done our best to acquire modern comfortable coaches with a sensible seat pitch, working loos and reliable drivers but there is no doubt that a coach journey is never going to be the most enjoyable aspect of a ski holiday. Unfortunately, the cost of private transfers can appear a little breathtaking (it is easy to forget that a one way taxi to Val d’Isere occupies a vehicle and a driver for an entire day), particularly if you don’t have at least four in your group, and most of our guests have said that they simply do not feel that the cost is justified for the sake of a few hours of additional comfort. We therefore include coach transfers in the standard price of our holidays for the majority of our customers that have said that they are happy with this small inconvenience at a pragmatic cost. Nonetheless, we recognise that some guests, and particularly those of larger stature, or unused to coach travel, would rather the convenience of a private vehicle to and from resort, and we are therefore delighted to arrange this service at an additional cost.

    Eliza was a perfect host and managed to save the holiday with her pleasant attitude and diplomatic skills. As a couple we were disappointed to be put in a chalet with a family with 2 young children who woke us up in the night and 6am in the morning, so not a relaxing holiday. The family also made it clear they were not happy couples were in the chalet causing an awkward environment. Eliza is a lovely accommodating and helpful girl, all the food was really delicious and better than when we went out for meals. The chalet could be improved if Tvs where in rooms and the shower didn't spray on the floor.

    Aspen lodge enjoys an enviable location on the high street a short walk from the lifts and ski school. The reception area with pool table, draught beer and coffee bar was a delightful place to unwind and meet other guests after a day on the slopes. Our bedroom (room1) was spacious by French chalet standards and comfortably appointed. The bathroom was generously proportioned with shower and bath, ideal for soaking in after a day in the slopes. Our chalet host Elliza was charming and abundantly enthusiastic. Nothing was too much trouble for her to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Cooked breakfast every morning, bacon cheese and tomato croissants was my daily choice. Cakes for afternoon tea each day, highlight was the Guinness cake, one of several recipes we managed to persuade Elliza to part with. We enjoyed Christmas dinner in the chalet and it was a pleasure for Elliza to join us. Menu highlights for the week included poached pears in red wine and mascapone and vanilla, apple crumble with granola topping, salmon tartare, spiced parsnip soup and croziflette. Elliza has certainly embraced her role in hospitality. Her personality and enthusiasm shine through. We both her a wonderful and enjoyable Season..

    Had a great holiday in Val d'isere, love skiing and the choice of runs in the resort are great, pistes are well maintained and the staff on the slopes are very friendly. First time we've stayed in a chalet hotel and even though it is a big hotel the apartments within are quite cosy, spacious and decorated in a more modern style to traditional chalets. The bathrooms I have to say are the nicest we've ever had and a great shower at the end of a long day is essential. Love the Molten Brown smellies! Sam our host in the Maple chalet has been great and definitely added to the enjoyable experience of our holiday. He has been friendly, easy going and knowledgable. The standard of the food has been top notch every night, lovely cakes await us after a long day and the chalet is always clean and tidy. In fact I can't believe the amount of work the chalet staff have to do. (Whilst still wearing a smile) The communal bar area downstairs is also a nice ad on.

    Overall a very good holiday in an excellent chalet. However, a few things for you at VIP to work on. Overall VIP delivered on commitments but the wow factor that was our previous VIP experience was missing; no over delivery on promises! Sam, our chalet host, was excellent but chalet manager Sebastian was not very visible and Jack on the coach did his job but with no evident enthusiasm. Uncertainty seemed to prevail - may be they are all just new. Little touches absent - eg daily newspaper used to be provided to each chalet, now 3 are shared across all chalets. Important specific issues to address: - coach used for transport back to airport was wholly unsuitable, with inadequate leg room for all but the shortest passengers; nearly everyone struggled with this. - Monarch, on return flight, failed to organise baggage handlers at Gatwick. Official announcement advised that all other flights had been prioritised over ours with result that bags were not delivered until over 90 minutes after landing. Why did this unacceptable situation arise? We hope that VIP are back to your normal exceptional standard when we travel to St Anton in February.

    VIP SKI - Unfortunately one of our aircraft developed a technical fault on the stand at Gatwick which led to a delay of 1 hour and 50 minutes. A subsequent breakdown of part of the Gatwick baggage handling system and the resulting mayhem then caused widespread disruption for the rest of the afternoon to both outbound and inbound aircraft. By the time some of our returning guests actually received their luggage, the baggage chaos had compounded their delay by several hours. This was clearly thoroughly unsatisfactory. We are advised that Gatwick are currently investing substantial sums in their ageing luggage systems and that reliability will improve in the future. We are sincerely sorry for the inconvenience caused on this occasion.

    Over all we had a fantastic holiday, location of chalet excellent, accommodation was lovely - only issue was around heating - it was too hot, but we were told it's an issue with building. Our nanny was excellent and really made the holiday. Resort and skiing were fantastic. We did have a fantastic first family ski holiday which was a result of very helpful staff in the UK office (Jess) and a very good nanny (Steph).

    We are aware that some of our guests have found Aspen rather hot in the past and clearly it is not environmentally friendly to cool the building by opening the balcony doors. We are pleased (at last) to announce that we have successfully found a cunning way of reducing the ambient temperature in the building and restoring individual room controls by disabling a heat regeneration unit and incapacitating some sensors. Tests after the season (Spring 2014) have been successful and everyone will now be able to control the temperature in their lounge and bedrooms by an individual thermostat rather than opening the doors and melting the nursery slopes! Apologies to our Aspen faithful that it has taken us so long to work this out and many thanks for your enduring patience.

They went the extra mile to make our stay even better - from early breakfasts to accommodate our conference, to helping ship our luggage to a different resort for a ski holiday the following week. We are likley to be back in Val d'Isere next year and would certainly look into staying at Aspen Lodge again.
