    Altitude Lodge in Les Gets has been three years in the making. Drawing upon 23 years of ski industry experience, VIP SKI has designed and built what it believes is the ultimate piste-side retreat, an ultra stylish ski-in ski-out chalet with all the trappings of a luxurious boutique hotel. Altitude Lodge houses nine bedrooms, including five spacious family rooms, all with flatscreen TVs and BOSE SoundDocks. Every comfort and convenience has been carefully considered to ensure that the needs of all ages are met. The Lodge’s superb facilities include an outdoor hot tub with mountain views, children’s playroom, sauna and massage suite and a piste-side bar and restaurant. Altitude is located at 1530 metres, on the piste, in the main Les Gets ski area of Les Chavannes beside all the lifts.Altitude Lodge boasts a funky urban interior with lift access to nine stylish bedrooms, including five family rooms, some with balconies or terraces and three with private outdoor hot tubs. All rooms have flatscreen TVs and BOSE SoundDocks. For the ultimate privacy the penthouse level offers three bedrooms with a private lounge and small office. Downstairs there is a piste-side bar, sun terrace and restaurant that are open to the public during the day. Residents also have exclusive use of two private lounges with an open fire and flat screen entertainment. On the ground floor there is a wet suite with sauna and massage room and access to the outdoor hot tub which enjoys lovely mountain views. A ski room with boot warmers ensures boots are dry and snug at the start of each day.

    Altitude Lodge is located at 1530 metres and offers a unique position overlooking the pistes, lifts and nursery slopes of Les Chavannes, 300m vertically above the village of Les Gets. Green, red and blue pistes weave back to the terrace through the woods.

    From Altitude Lodge guests can take the bubble lift down to the resort until late in the day or select from a number of gentle pistes down to the lower nursery slopes. The lifts outside the door lead you to the challenging Point de Nyon, the untracked Chamoissiere off-piste or the gentle intermediate Les Gets bowl. Just over the ridge is Morzine from where the variety of the Portes du Soleil is outstanding; the largest linked ski area in the world, a claim made by many certainly, but only here will you find 2 countries, 14 resorts, 209 lifts, 288 marked slopes, and over 650 kilometres of piste!

    Renowned for their uncompromising service and ultra stylish chalets, VIP SKI believe that after 23 years in the business they might have at last conceived and delivered the ultimate skiing venue in Altitude Lodge.
