Thank you

Wow – that winter season has just shot past! A big Thank you to you all for staying with us this season. We have had an amazing time but all over far too quickly. Whilst the season does not officially close until the 24 April 2016 here in Chatel, most people assume that after Easter holidays, the slopes all close. This means the empty pistes are there for abuse! lol

Thank you to my amazing team, Abi and Oli, Abi and Sam, Luke and Grace, Alice and also Tim and Elaine who left us early due to an injury sustained on the slopes.

An extra thank you to Abi and Oli have been around Chatel for a while now and are departing shortly for new ventures. Looking after the administration of the business ensured smooth running and extra help always on hand. We wish them all the best in whatever they choose to do. We know you’ll be back though 😉

Luke and Grace will be with Alpinebreaks throughout the Summer 2016 and also looking to return next winter which is fantastic news. They have been a brilliant pair of hands and have built an excellent rapport with guests, nothing being too much trouble. Thank you to them for stepping into Tim and Elaine’s shoes in February following a helicopter ride of the piste for Elaine. Watch out for Benidorm this year, where Tim and Elaine are extras on this popular TV show lol.

Abi and Sam did an amazing job in our new Chalet this year. They served and looked after Chalet 1972 with great care and attention. Thank you to them both for their humour and wit and we wish them all the best in the future wherever they end up as not quite decided what doing next.

Then there is our young Alice, in the midst of a gap year, who assisted in Chalet Lac de Vonnes with her beautiful smile and personality. Thank you Alice and we wish you all the best in your future at Uni.

We would like to say thank you to you all for your custom. We have had alot of new people stay with us this year who we hope to see again. Our reputation at Chalet Lac de Vonnes and Chalet Linga saw 80% plus of people return from previous years! A total of 457 people came through our doors this season….456 of you are welcome back anytime lol 😉

Several people have already re-booked for next year which is testament to our great job the teams are doing here in Chatel. Or is it because of Heinz the dog? lol Thank you from Heinz for all the gifts you brought him. He is now on a diet! incidentally, someone did think Heinz was my gay partner as only heard about Heinz and didn’t appreciate he was a dog…..lol

So we move on, and the many jobs to do in the chalet, repairs and refurnishing etc. All exciting and all in preparation for the next winter 🙂

Thank you, it has been emotional,

Darren, Heinz and the Alpinebreaks team
