We have been to Les Coches on regular ski holidays and found the whole experience fantastic. Skiaffinity offer a great solution to missing the usual gridlock on "transfer Saturday", they offer a Sunday to Sunday package so not only the roads are quieter on a Sunday, we also get to ski on Saturday with only the locals on the slopes. Skiaffinity offer a luxury fully catered chalet within metres of the ski lift and with Laurie and Jess as chalet hosts delivering exceptional fully catered 5 star service. Great village atmosphere, check out "White Lines" après bar also. It was so good at new year we are all heading back next month.
