About Us

The perfect skiing holiday experience


Our aim is to offer remarkable ski holiday experiences that you will want to come back for, year after year.  Both Ruth and I had careers in the City and after having spent many years booking our own ski holidays (often for large groups of our friends) we feel we know what the discerning traveller wants and expects from a memorable chalet holiday: luxurious and comfortable accommodation; friendly and professional service; and with a catered chalet offering, scrumptious food and great wines.  We strive to offer all of the above (and more) so our guests are left with only one choice when booking their next skiing holiday.

The best ski resort in the 3 Valleys

Both Ruth and I have considerable skiing experience in ski resorts throughout Europe and the rest of the world, but we have always been drawn back to the 3 Valleys time and time again. It was therefore an easy decision when leaving the City to head to France and the 3 Valleys for our first winter season. We both fell in love with the unspoilt charm and beauty of St Martin de Belleville and realised that this was the perfect ski resort for White Mountain Chalets.

We know that there are many different types of chalet companies out there, all with different aims and ambitions.  At White Mountain Chalets, our ethos is simple: we continually ask “are we offering the holiday experience that we have always been looking for”.  We hope that this ethos, coupled with our deep passion for food, love of entertaining and eye for detail will make you feel you’ve found the holiday you’ve always been looking for.
