Serre Chevalier, France
Serre Chevalier, France

SCV Ski Area is already preparing the 2018-2019 season with a planned investment of € 10 million for even more access! Exciting times!

The new chairlift Cote Chevalier will allow a better flow for us powder seekers offering a significantly improved connection between Monetier and all domain areas:

Monêtier> Briançon

5 chairlifts > Bachas, Eychauda, Cucumelle, Cote Chevalier Prorel

35 minute journey - 2 runs 

Capacity 3000 persons per hour comparing to 1800 persons per hour!

The old chairlift Cote Chevalier chairlift and the Frejus lift Pré du Bois will be dismantled. The number of pylons will be decreased with 39 being disassembled and 22 relocated.

.Everything is scheduled to open in December 2018.          Happy Days!

Here is a litttle video from the crew at SCV to get your tastebuds tingling for Winter 2019

 

Winter 2018

  • Unlimited wine with dinner
  • Tiramisu
  • Jibber Jabber 2018

Well it's been a couple of months since the winter ended and we are now well rested and back to business!

On reflection .....What an incredible season 2018 was. We're still reeling!

The snow Gods delivered hundreds of centimetres of snow to most resorts and of course we being one of them revelled in the empty powder filled fields for days on end, making fresh tracks even three days after fresh snowfall - which is one of the reasons we love it here. No fighting for freshies, they are plentiful. Quiet queues and uncongested runs...this makes us smile : )

We had a fantastic Jibber Jabber week with the awesome Love Inc crew, a crackin new menu and Serre Chevalier had mentions all over the media including The Telegraph noting Serre Chevalier as one of the best ski resorts in France. 

Our biggest news of the season has to be our farewell to Steve aka the Third muskateer of Snowed Inn Chalets. We started the company together but this year he welcomes another path and says goodbye to the SIC life, although I am certain we will be seeing him plenty on and off the hill. We wish him so much good luck and also with the arrival of his new baby any day now!

We also should announce the news of mine and Matt's second little one arriving in September meaning we have two new Snowed Inn trainees in the making! We are thrilled! 

So, we look at 2019 with loads of excitement as we are preparing new menu's, new chalets - soon to be revealed, and much more. If you have any suggestions as always contact us but we hope to meet if not beat your expectations with Snowed Inn Chalets 2019.

Cheers

Jo, Matt, Arnie and bump x

Spectacular 2017 in Serre Chevalier

What an incredible end to a season. Yes, the lifts shut a few days ago and then the snow gods let loose!! Never mind, we always fancied a hike anyway!

So, what can we say. Great guests, incredible staff, mega snow conditions with a good solid amount of powder days, the best Jibber Jabber week yet and just a hell of a lot of good good times!

We look forward to doing it all over again nex year for winter 2017 - 2018 in Serre Chevalier.

 

Winter Gifts

Everyone to the hospital!

Well....What a season. You're probably thinking why it has took this long to create a blog post for last season being June already....well let me tell you.

As most of our returning guests know we have had an interesting winter but for those that are new to us let me explain.

We *Snowed Inn Chalets* is made up of me (Jo), Matt and Steve.  This winter, for some wonderful crazy reason...the wind turned and we all got pregnant! *Jo and Matt and Steve and his bootiful missus*

Of course our planning was hilarious and randomly *if you can believe it* we all ended up in hospital on the same day welcoming our fresh little ones to the snowy world, not just in the winter season but during half term....our busiest week of the year and of course the busiest week we have EVER had with over 90 guests staying with SIC! Great timing kids!

The show went on of course! We had a dreamteam including *life saving* big sisters, best mates, new mates with impressive culinary skills and we couldn't be more happy that it all went so smoothly...with our guests that week praising their stay and most returning for Winter 2017! 

So a massive thank you to every one that helped us and everyone that came and stayed with us this last hiver....we are so grateful for the love and support!

Now, we need to get training these new little beings! Welcome to Snowed Inn Arnie and Kira xxx

Jibber Cruise

Poor Lory last year regrettably broke himself for a few weeks. But on the plus side he made a little jib vid from the SIC archives.

Thanks Lory!

 

Returning Wonders

We are pleased as punch to announce the return of mega staff duo Sasha and Lory this coming winter 2016!

Superstar Chef

Superstar Chef!

You’ll never guess where I was this working this week……

As the personal chef to Tori Amos and her crew!!!

I had the privilege to work and stay at Martian Engineering Studios in Cornwall and prepare their breakfast, lunch and dinner whilst they rehearsed for a upcoming festival in Barcelona.

As you can imagine I took this all within my stride, chefing for a music legend ain’t no thang *!?* So you’ll be pleased to hear that when I was first introduced to Tori and her family I promptly turned the colour of a beetroot, and continued to glow away in bashful embarrassment for the next ten minutes even outshining the bright red kitchen!

Fortunately I composed myself and knocked up a variety of tasty meals for Tori and her team over the next  four days. Serving a selection of hearty and healthy delights including; Moroccan mezze, Sunday Roast, Italian platter, and on request good ole steak with heaps of veggies and peppercorn sauce….rounding it off nicely with homemade tequila ice cream!

It was really nice to meet them all and lovely to see that after a long day they liked nothing better than enjoying each other’s company  unwinding over dinner with some bottles of wine.

As you can imagine I really enjoyed this experience and along the way stumbled upon a selection of new dishes .  So if you come and pay us a visit this winter,  get ready for some Super Star Cooking!
