Ski Chalets and Apartments in Paradiski

About Ski La Source

We are Ski La Source based in Montchavin - Les Coches. It’s nice to meet you!

Back in 1997, founders Linda and Chris started the adventure in the French Alps with a small chalet in Les Coches. Since then, we’ve lived in the area and have firm roots.

Supplies are bought from small, local businesses wherever possible, and we love to work closely with them.

A strong working relationship ensures the high quality of products and services.

Wine tasting at the local wine cave is a tough and challenging job.

Seriously though, our goals have always been the same; to give our guests the best ski holiday they can have at an affordable price. Your enjoyment is paramount.

Often guests return to us year upon year, some since 1997, which is the most valuable feedback an independent chalet company can have.

When you think about skiing down perfect pistes, we put Montchavin - Les Coches at the forefront of your mind.

Our Environmental Efforts

It’s essential to us that we minimise our impact on the environment.

We know how travelling and skiing affect the planet, so we take steps to balance that.

Actively limiting our impact is at the core of our business, and we encourage you to help us.

Where possible, we recycle, turn lights off, save water and limit the use of chemicals. We protect our guests using chemical products where necessary, such as toilets, kitchen surfaces, and door handles.

Ski La Source limits the purchase of plastic for use within our accommodation. We use local traders, and we’ve switched to greener electricity suppliers.

After the winter season each year, Ski La Source helps the local community clear up the rubbish left behind after the snowmelt.

Supporting Canopée - A Charity That Protects Forests

Ski La Source donates to Canopée, an organisation that protects forests. Our donations help this fabulous organisation protect forests in France, Europe, and worldwide.

They have only been going since 2018 and felt we wanted to support a French organisation.

We plant a few trees here and there, but when it comes to saving forests, we feel powerless.

Canopee keep forests alive

Trees contribute to biodiversity and mitigate the effects of climate change and pollution – just a few of the many boons bestowed by forests worldwide.

Three years of living with Covid strengthened our belief that healthy forests mean healthy people. Protecting and restoring forests will improve the environment.

Every tree counts, and even small-scale tree planting makes a difference.

Ski La Source Review from Penny

I just wanted to say what a lovely week we all had in Les Coches last week. All the arrangements worked like clockwork and the family had a great time re-acquainting themselves with skis. Thank you very much for all the hard work on our behalf.

The Team at Ski La Source

As our adventure continues and the business grows, we bought in staff. We take time to interview everyone and do personal checks. Our team must suit you, our guest.

We look for people who share the same values, work ethic, love of the mountains and have a sense of fun.

Linda 

Linda is one of the owners and founders and works alongside the operations team. Together they know everything there is to know about organising and enjoying a ski holiday in Montchavin - Les Coches.

As a young person, Linda was into track and field. She ran for a club and competed at Country, Southern Counties and UK Athletics Championships level, where she came 4th. A distinct memory is when she threw up after the 400-metre hurdle.

Chris

Chris is Linda’s other half, joint owner and founder of Ski La Source. His strengths are guiding the businesses financially, meeting the guests in the pub and organising live music events in Montchavin - Les Coches.

Before leaving the UK, Chris played cricket and football. His sporting endeavours were not as high level as Linda's.

Chris played for the village, which involved frequent visits to the pub to test the strength of Newcastle Brown.

The height of success was being crowned Mr Brockham for both football and cricket in the same year. Brockham is where Chris grew up, in the Mole Valley district of Surrey, England.

Chris is fun-filled and has a lot of experience on the slopes.

Ski La Source Review from Mark W

I wanted to thank you and the team for a fantastic holiday, and in particular Hannah who did a great job looking after us all. We have all had a great time during the last week.

Linda and Chris’ Life Together

Linda and Chris met at a party whilst dancing to the Smiths. Chris won Linda over by buying her a Cinzano and lemonade. After Linda’s father thoroughly checked over Chris, they were allowed to meet up the next day.

These days they enjoy living in the mountains together; they ski, snowboard, hike, climb, mountain bike and enjoy white water sports.

About ten years ago, they started to play open mic gigs at apres ski in Les Coches, which led to the pair playing live with friends to entertain guests and locals.

Food is a significant interest for both of them, so they enjoy creating chalet menus. Their love of cooking inspired them to home-grow vegetables in the summer months.

They grow their produce with a permacultural approach, creating a garden in harmony with nature. They plant a diverse selection of edible plants in their food forest to help the natural ecosystem flourish.

Local Holiday Accommodation Suppliers

To match our customers' needs exactly, we work closely with other local accommodation providers who look after guests in the Le Boulier and Le Domino apartments and a selection of Montchavin self-catered chalets.

We'd use “fun and friendly” if we could describe our chalet holidays in two words. We want you to enjoy your holiday and the Montchavin - Les Coches area as much as we do.

Test us and ask us questions - we almost always know the answer. And if we don't, we’ll do our best to find the solution for you!
