Chalet Le Lac Blanc 2, Alpe D'Huez, France
As part of the Mountain Collection, Chalet Le Blanc offers free ski guiding and coaching with fully qualified Mountain Expert ski and snowboard instructors. Various sessions run throughout the week to introduce you to the ski area and improve your technique along the way. Skiers and snowboarders wishing to take part need to be over 18 (or 12 in school holidays) and be good enough to ski down blue and red pistes. You can sign up for the sessions at the chalet on your first day in resort.
The Lac Blanc II and its identical sister chalet occupy the same building which is located slap bang in the middle of the slopes right next to the DMC gondola. There's a snack bar underneath the chalets for a quick stop, or you could just nip back to the chalet for a cuppa or even just a quick sit down.
At the end of the day, ski or snowboard to your door, head up the stairs past the equipment storage and boot warmers, turn right and you're straight into the chalet with its contemporary styled lounge and diner. Step out if the lounge doors to the large wrap-around balcony which overlooks the resort and slopes for some fresh air and amazing views.
The choice of lifts within 100m of the chalet door includes the two-stage DMC gondola which takes you to 2700m or a series of drag lifts. Having this choice makes the Lac Blanc a good option for any level of skier.
