Notes from our Igluski Experts

"The Chalet Christophorus is unique for more than one reason. Not only is it the only catered chalet for adult guests in the popular Austrian ski area of Obergurgl, it is also one of very few Austrian chalets to be ski in ski out. Surrounded by ski slopes, guests at the Christophorus start their day with a gentle beginner run down to the chairlift. Even better for first timers, the ski school meeting point is just 50 metres from the chalet, making the Christophorus a smart choice for beginners. "

Chalet Christophorus - Obergurgl, Austria

Chalet Christophorus proved hugely popular with its guests, not least for its rarity value – at the time of going to press, this is still the one and only catered chalet for adult guests in the whole of this superb resort!

Set in a quiet cul-de-sac off the main street, within easy walking distance of the village centre, and right on the slopes at the foot of the imaginatively named No 6 Blue run, the Christophorus is one of the best located chalets in the Alps! For added convenience, the beginners ski area is just behind the chalet and the ski-school meeting-point, a mere 50m away.

Just 30m from the ski-room door, you can put your skis on and ski down to the main Festkogl gondola, and then ski back right to the chalet at the end of the day. Or, if you wanted to start from the village centre, the regular free ski-bus stops just 50m from the chalet.
The bedrooms are all well appointed, comfortable and attractively styled, most with their own private en suite bath and separate wc, and several with balcony or terrace.

The dining-room on the first floor is traditionally styled with light wooden fixtures, and there is a traditional Tyrolean tiled stove to add ambience and warmth to your chalet dining experience. A small separate lounge offers a quiet spot to read or chat over the day’s skiing, and the sauna and relaxation area are an added bonus for unwinding after a busy ski day. Approximate Transfer time to resort: 1 hour 45 minutes

Meals - Chalet Christophorus, Obergurgl

We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your own holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff during the pre-season training course are trained to the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health’s Level 2 in Food Safety*. For six days of the week our staff prepare all your meals, as described below.


A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a cooked breakfast including your choice of bacon, eggs, sausages and beans, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself.  On our staff’s one day off a week, only the continental breakfast will be provided.

Afternoon Tea

The traditional ‘welcome home’ after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff’s one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.

Children’s High Tea

In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children’s tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.

Dinner in Chalets

A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host – or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets – and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.
