Chalet Edelweiss - Plagne 1800 - 31/01/2022

3 of us were booked into a one bedroom apartment in the Chalet Edelweiss. The other bed is in the lounge/kitchenette area and is a pull out from the sofa. Apartments were spotlessly clean as was all the cooking and storage spaces. The bathroom and separate toilet also spotless. The apartments are "Bijou" and it would have been good to have a draining board, but we managed okay and we were mostly eating out in any case. Apartments are no more than 50m from the bottom of the Melezes lift so literally from breakfast to the Bergerie lift is a 5 minute job. You could also order epic pain chocolate and bagette to collect from reception in the mornings from a local bakery. Also great pizza from the Bobsleigh bar just a 1 minute walk away. As is the lift pass office and sport 2000 for ski hire. All in all perfectly situated. This was our 3rd time in Plagne 1800 and usually do chalet catering, but due to Covid 19 only 3 of us were up for risking travel this time and we felt the self catered option a safer option. We had a fabulous bluebird week (bar the 2 hours stuck on the apron at Chambery, on the way in, which the whole flight got through in good humour and a few bevvies) Lyon on the way home was a much smoother operation (nicely done Crystals). Was good to knock the rust off the ski technique after 2 years of pining for the Alps. Everyone in resort was bob on. Ignore my Apres ski review as I am more of a few beers back at the chalet type. The food at the La Roche Restaurant was probably my favourite, with the Bergerie altitude restaurant a strong second. Honourable mention to the Bonnet bar in Bellecote for a solid beefburger. Roll on the next ski trip.

Apres Ski: 3/5

The skiing - 31/01/2022

Unexpectantly good. Late January 2022 with no new snow but pistes well conditioned. In the lower villages there was artificial comming through but higher up they kept most of the slopes open and groomed and some left "Natur" with enough bumps for most. The off pistes were well skied. The South facing sun bowls were a treat of wide quiet blues and challenging reds. Only saw occasional lift interruptions for unknown reasons. Occasional Covid passes done very efficiently on phones. No significant queues . Restaurant / drinks queues at busy times were long but could be avoided with planning of location and timing. Skiied many resorts in many countries and La Plagne was not on my radar but had a great week and commend the resort for operation only a few days after French covid rules relaxation.

Apres Ski: 2/5
