VIP SKI delivers the ultimate 2015-2016 ski season

VIP SKI is set to open three penthouse apartments in Avoriaz this coming winter and two stunning chalets in Meribel.


VIP SKI has bought the top floor of the best located building in Avoriaz. Andy Sturt, owner at VIP SKI said; “Ten years of searching for the perfect location has finally been a success”.

Converting a selection of hand-picked 1970’s apartments into three penthouse suites, VIP SKI promises guests spectacular aerial and panoramic views over Avoriaz. Three penthouse suites in the very centre of Avoriaz, right next to the piste and overlooking the ski school meeting point, Tourist Office, Aquariaz indoor pool complex, drag lifts and ice rink. These luxury penthouse apartments are perfect for families looking to stay close to other fun activities for their children to enjoy.

No. 1 Penthouse Suite Offering three en suite bedrooms, one with an extra bed in a quirky private alcove, this penthouse suite is an ideal space for 6-7 guests. This modern, chic apartment with surround sound TV, DVD, WiFi and flat screen TVs in all bedrooms is perfect for those looking for a refreshing change from traditional wooden chalets. Prices start from £869 per person.

No. 2 Penthouse Suite With just two en suite bedrooms, No.2 Penthouse Suite is an inviting, family hideout and a perfect retreat after a busy day on the slopes for four. Couples or small groups can enjoy the privacy that this apartment offers whilst making the most of its proximity to Avoriaz’s centre. The suite is entirely independent with open plan living/dining area and contemporary fireplace, surround sound TV, DVD, WiFi, flat screen TV’s in the bedrooms and a dedicated chalet host. Prices start from £929 per person.

No. 3 Penthouse Suite This apartment is the largest and most adaptable of the three units on the 9th floor. It offers three en suite bedrooms, two of which have additional bunk beds. This gives flexible and spacious accommodation for groups and families of 6 to 10. Prices start from £909 per person.

If booked early, large parties can book out the whole of the 9th floor to accommodate up to 23 guests for special occasions. All guests would benefit from the proximity to the slopes, the ski school meeting point, Tourist Office, Aquariaz indoor pool complex, drag lifts and ice rink in addition to the dedicated chalet hosts. All three penthouses have the style and facilities of luxury modern apartments with the space of large chalets.


Very few chalets are located on the piste in Meribel, however, situated only a six minute stroll from the centre of Meribel and two minutes away from the pistes, via VIP SKI’s Merishuttle chauffeur service, both Chalet Zebra and Little Zebra are easily accessible.

Chalet Zebra is another masterpiece to add to VIP SKI’s eclectic collection of desirable chalets at the very heart of the Three Valleys. Just a few minutes stroll from the centre of town, this stunning Meribel chalet offers style, comfort and a great deal of space.

An impressive suspended central fireplace, surrounded by large, comfortable sofas, dominates the living area. Guests can admire the view from the warmth of the living area though the floor to ceiling glass windows. The accommodation is generously spread over three floors with abundant wrap around terraces. The bathrooms have huge walk-in showers and the bedrooms boast flat screen TVs. Guests can also make use of the small TV lounge, massive outdoor sauna and sunken hot tub.

Chalet Zebra provides comfortable accommodation for twelve in six en suite bedrooms. The dedicated chalet hosts will happily prepare daily delights at breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner, allowing guests to sit back, relax, and make the absolute most of their ski holiday. Prices start from £1,159 per person.

Little Zebra can be found across the terrace and up a flight of stone steps from Chalet Zebra. Two bedroom chalets are not easy to find, particularly in the popular resort of Meribel. VIP SKI’s chalets are therefore even more delighted to introduce Little Zebra to their collection. Couples, families of four or small groups of friends will enjoy this spacious chalet that promises privacy and intimacy.

Little Zebra is a freestanding, two bedroom chalet over two floors. The open plan living/dining space is generous for four guests whilst the patio doors open out onto a private terrace with hot tub. Guests can admire impressive views whilst relaxing in the warmth of the hot tub. Upstairs, both double en suite bedroom and twin bedroom have a huge shared balcony and a separate shower room. VIP SKI has stylishly decorated this recently renovated chalet so that it is now smart and contemporary, yet comforting and welcoming to guests who have spent a long day on the slopes. Prices start from £1,189 per person.

Together, the two chalets are a perfect choice for a larger group of 16. Should the chalets be booked by separate groups, guests of both chalets will enjoy their own privacy and, of course, their own chalet service. Using VIP Chalet’s Merishuttle transfer service will maximise guests’ skiing time and preserve their legs for the slopes. The driver will come to the chalet every morning at a pre-set time and then drive guests the few minutes and few hundred yards to the main Chaudannes lift station. Guests can then call to be collected from the piste and returned to their chalet as late as 7pm.

VIP SKI has built most of the accommodation in their impressive portfolio, which extends to 10 resorts. These five properties, however, have been hand-selected by the VIP SKI team and renovated to provide all five with the VIP SKI seal of approval. VIP SKI always endeavours to design and decorate their properties to suit the needs and dreams of their guests. A goal that they never fail to achieve.

The VIP package does not stop at the stylish, luxury accommodation: VIP SKI strives to provide service that guarantees the dream holiday for all guests. The VIP team has carefully organised packages that mean guests will not need to lift a finger.
The style and the service of VIP SKI attracts a range of people from expert skiers to those who have never set foot on the slopes. Other activities are available at both resorts to guarantee the enjoyment of all guests regardless of their skiing abilities.

Laurent Perrier

VIP SKI’s Executive Chef is passionate about food and hugely sensitive to the appetite of a hungry skier whilst considering a balanced diet. The new and refined 2015/16 menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.

As well as possessing a flair for entertaining and a genuine love of food, VIP SKI’s chalet hosts are friendly, unflappable and exceptionally hard working. Every chalet and hotel in the portfolio offers guests a catered ski holiday.

New for this winter, Laurent-Perrier is being introduced as the house champagne included in the holiday on two evenings of the week with canapés. In 1881, when Cellar Master Eugène Laurent inherited the Alphonse PierlotChampagne House, he provided it with the essential foundations required to produce great champagnes, namely the houses and land to create a fully-fledged estate.

The Domaine Laurent-Perrier (the Estate) is anchored in Tours-sur-Marne. This picturesque village is ideally situated at the crossroads of the three main wine growing areas of the Marne département: the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs. It is also part of the 17 Champagne villages ranking in the prestigious ‘Grand Cru’ area and fits well with the VIP SKI ethos.
