The chalet coped well with 13 adults - good sized rooms, ample seating and relaxing space and a decent outdoor hot tub made for a great environment. Ski equipment storage is also excellent. That...

Slope transfers were prompt in order for the Skiers not to miss their lessons and a free bus is also available to catch just a couple of minutes from the lodge. The...

Just come back from a fabulous long weekend at Brown Bear Lodge. The chalet is big and comfy and cosy, with a roaring fire every evening. It's a bit out of town, but is more than made up for by lifts to and from the slopes every day (I reckon you end up doing less walking in your ski boots...

Another fantastic Xmas ski holiday with Reach for the Alps. Great sunny weather and ski conditions. Brown Bear lodge is perfectly located for easy access into the Avoriaz ski area, is very comfortable, with amazing canapés and dinner with wine every night.
