Accommodation

Our accommodation partner for this coaching holiday is Ski Hame, an independent chalet operator that operates a number of chalets in the Trois Vallees. Chalet Grange á Charlotte is a lovely chalet located in the traditional hamlet of Meribel Les Allues. It sleeps up to 14 people in great comfort, featuring seven en-suite bedrooms (all with full size baths except one which has a shower).

It is a very comfortable and spacious chalet, with an open plan lounge/dining area, log fireplace and underfloor heating throughout. There is a TV and DVD player, CD player & iPod docking station. There are hair dryers in every bedroom, and a boot room with full size boot dryer/warmer for comfortable boots every day! There is free wifi internet access throughout the chalet. The highlight of the apres-ski facilities is a full size indoor hot tub.

Meribel Les Allues is a short journey from the centre of Meribel itself. Chalet staff will take you each morning to the main lifts in Meribel by private minibus, where you will met the Inside Out Skiing coaches. At the end of the day we will agree a time and location for collection by the chalet staff, which could be Meribel or Meribel village, allowing for a different venue for apres-ski drinks before being taken back to the chalet. Alternatively the free resort shuttle bus can be used to travel around the Meribel valley.

Once the two single rooms are taken at the main chalet we have the option for you to stay in a twin room on a single basis and take your evening meals and afternoon tea with the group at Charlotte.

Travel

Transfers to the resort
A free transfer to and from Geneva Airport is included in the cost of the coaching holiday. This gives you the freedom to choose whatever flight and departure airport is most convenient for you. Transfer to the resort will be by private minibus service. Please contact complete our booking form or contact Ski Hame to confirm transfer timings before you book your flights. As a rough guide look at flights arriving Geneva airport between 9am and 5pm on arrival day, and scheduled after 9am on departure day. There may be a wait for others on different flights as Ski Hame shares the transfer with other chalet operators and the service is very reliable and well coordinated.
Travel within the resort
The villages of Meribel Les Allues is approximately 10 minutes from the main Meribel lift complex. Ski Hame's chalet staff are extremely helpful and use a private minibus to take you to the slopes each day where you will meet the Inside Out Skiing coaches. A time and pickup point is agreed each day for collection after skiing, allowing you the choice of apres-ski venues.

In addition to Ski Hame's service there is also a free resort shuttle bus service to get you anywhere within the Meribel valley and taxis are plentiful if you desire a late night out.
