Chalet Viewpoint is a stunning, newly built chalet with breathtaking views of the Matterhorn and Mount Dente Blanc. Located in the hamlet of Les Masses, set high in the mountain and just metres away from the brand new 4-man, high speed chairlift, this chalet offers excellent accommodation for 6 to 8 people. On the ground floor there are three double bedrooms and two modern bathrooms, one with a whirlpool bath and both with walk-in showers. Go upstairs and you emerge into a large open plan living area with sofas, separate dining area and a modern designer Poggenpohil kitchen. Everywhere, there are stunning views through the large floor to ceiling windows that lead out to one of two balconies. By the front door there is a large boot room for drying and storing skis, with the added benefit of a boot warmer. No cold, wet boots in the morning here!
Chalet ViewPoint is designed to be luxurious and comfortable with large relaxing spaces to 'chill' in the evening, whether it be with a glass of wine in front of a stove fire or around the dining area with satisfying stories of the days skiing.
Ski access – Is a 200m walk to the new high speed four man lift up to the snow park of Thyon and beyond. Great access to the ski school is one short run away from the snow park.
Skiing - Les Masses, Les Collons and Thyon form the eastern gateway to one of the largest continuous skiing areas in the Alps. The “Four Valleys” (including the resorts of Thyon, Veysonnaz, Nendaz, La Tzoumaz and Verbier) offers a total of more than 90 lifts and over 400km of groomed pistes. Winter walkers will find several kilometres of cleared winter footpaths as well as routes for snow-shoe walking and dog-sledge rides.
Les Masses, Les Collons and Thyon are ideal for family holidays. The severely restricted traffic, quantity of nursery slopes, children’s ski school and the quiet village atmosphere make these resorts particularly family-friendly. Yet there are some excellent restaurants and bars that cater for all budgets for evening entertainment.
In addition to the local skiing, an extended ski lift pass will allow you to ski or snowboard in the other Four Valleys of Bruson, Evoline, La Tzoumaz and Verbier. This is a huge ski area and it would take some really determined skiing to explore in a week. That’s not to mention the many areas of off piste skiing for the hardened skier. Please consider guides for these world renowned great areas, they know exactly the best places to go and will keep you safe.
With skiing above 2000 metres, snow cover is generally reliable throughout the season, which lasts from early December through to April. But just in case, Thyon and Les Collons are able to augment natural snow, with 68 snow cannons to ensure that you have a great skiing holiday whatever is happening to the climate! And with 42 ski lifts in the local area, lifting 10,000 skiers/snowboarders per hour, queuing is a rarity and seldom seen in these parts.
The vast variety of pistes here mean that there are runs and slopes for all standards of skiers and boarders to enjoy, from gentle blue and red cruising runs to blacks that will make your toes curl and your heart beat just a bit faster. The women’s world cup down hill run of Mayens- de-Lours is a great run and local to your ski area. Thyon also hosts the Snowboard Swiss Cup ‘The King of the Mountain’ and Champion Suisse de Snowboard Junior. This resort is quickly becoming the area of choice in the 4 Vallees, with great skiing for all abilities and a more relaxed comfortable environment.
