We are La Source Ski & Adventure Ltd
Our adventure, in the French Alps, began in 1997 when we started with a small 3 bedroom catered chalet. Since then we have slowly grown into a medium sized business with very strong roots. Now we offer a wide range of catered and self-catered accommodation in Montchavin-Les Coches, a ski station at the Heart of the Paradiski area (425kms of pistes). As a couple we are involved with the local community and businesses to help improve and develop our environment.
We are based at the heart of one of the biggest ski areas in the world. Paradiski is Les Arcs and La Plagne, linked by one of the biggest and fastest cable cars in the world, the Vanoise Express (just 4 minutes). We are based in Montchavin-Les Coches which is a ski station comprising two mountain villages accessed by tree lined runs and both of which have architecture of original alpine style (no industrial hotel blocks here). All of our ski accommodation is one ski lift away from this link so we are uniquely positioned to take advantage of the 425 kms of some of the most varied pistes anywhere on the planet! Cruisy greens and blues to off piste trips down the north face of the Bellecote, something for everyone.
Our goals have always been the same, to give our guests the best ski holiday they could have and at an affordable price. All our suppliers are locally run businesses and we work very closely with them to ensure that the quality of their products remain high, from ski schools to our local wine cave (lots of tasting required!).
We personally interview all our staff. A major part of the interview for our catered chalet hosts is a cooking test. We are always looking for people who share the same values, work ethic, love of the mountains and have a sense of fun.
Our catered guests will enjoy the highest quality home cooked food, comfortable well positioned chalets. We also offer our catered guests a free pickup and drop off service from the local train and bus stations. You, as our guest, will be introduced to your qualified ski instructors, most of whom are friends of ours, pre-booked lift passes will be delivered to your accommodation and our whole team is there to ensure you have a great time.
Both sides of our business are equally important to us and we have specific services designed for individual needs.
Skiing isn’t the greenest of pastimes however we actively doing everything we can to limit the impact of our activities on the environment. We recycle where possible, we turn lights off and we help the local community clear up at the end of the season. We are also changing the way we purchase trying to limit the impact of plastics.
We have guests who stayed with us in 1997 and have stayed with us every year since. That is the best feedback that we can have and we will continue to work with the goal of putting La Source Ski and Montchavin-Les Coches at the forefront of peoples thoughts when they are thinking about booking a ski holiday.
Our adventure continues, we are joined by our Resort Manager who is our "right arm" as they say in French.
We look forward to welcoming you to Montchavin-Les Coches, Montchavin-La Plagne.
