The chalet is located at the bottom of the ski and snowboard slopes of Vallorcine- Balme- Le Tour ski area. The Walser chalet is a 5 minutes walk from the 8-seaters gondola of our family ski town of Vallorcine Mont Blanc mountain range and part of the Chamonix valley and ski resorts of Chamonix Mont Blanc. Vallorcine Balme, is one of the five Compagnie du Mont Blanc ski areas, besides the ski descent of the Valley Blanche from the Aiguille du Midi. There are many advantages to rent the Walser chalet, because :
- since 2004, Vallorcine is equipped with an 8-seater gondola serving the Domaine de Balme Le Tour Vallorcine located in the Chamonix Mont Blanc valley. This is a family resort and visually open throughout the Mont Blanc. There is plenty of off-piste skiing directly from the ski area, either from the French side, or from the Swiss side.
- another asset, our Anatase chalet is located 5 minutes walk from the gondola and from the Ecole de Ski Français. A red difficulty ski slope takes you back to the chalet while skiing or riding, depending on snow conditions and those who are tired can descend by cable car.
- the Ecole du Ski Français is located at the foot of the gondola, 5 minutes walk from the chalet and if there is beginners, ski school takes them to the Poya at the other end of the village and bring them back to the gondola at the end of ski lesson. You can also get there by train because our Vallorcine village is served by a railway line going from Chamonix to Martigny in Switzerland and we have two train stations in Vallorcine, one in Chef Lieu at a 5 minutes walk away from the chalet and the other train station at the Buet la Poya three kilometers from the village center and where are the ski lifts for beginners.
- You can also use the services of the Walser chalet owner, ski instructor and mountain guide if some of you need a private ski instructor or a mountain guide to ski the Vallée Blanche in Chamonix or to learn on how to ski off piste and on glacier www.mountainguide-chamonix.com
- The cross-country skiing and snowshoeing start, marked and maintained is 200 meters from the chalet.
- You will find everything close by from the chalet, two rental ski and snowboard shops, a grocery store, bread, bars and tobacco. But there are also several restaurants in the village and next to the chalet. A free outdoor skating rink, at a 5 minutes' walk from the chalet that is open at night since winter season 2009-2010. Sliding runs close by from the chalet. Possibility of ski joring and dog sled ride.
- Transportation by train is free from Vallorcine to Chamonix and even further down to Servoz on presentation of the guest card that we give each member of your group at the beginning of stay. This allow skiers who want to travel to other ski resorts such as les Grands Montets and la Flégère Brévent to go there by train and therefore not to drive. Ski resorts on North side of the valley of Chamonix are not connected to each other because there are glaciers between each ski area, which explains the need for transportation that are recommended and possible via the train to visit the other ski areas.
- You can also got to the website www.compagniedumontblanc.com to discover all the skiing and snowboarding sites in the Chamonix valley.
