Great organisation that makes a long weekend skiing brilliant. We came last year when the weather was awful, this year we had perfect blue skies and fantastic skiing. The room may be basic but it's not what you are here for. Great hospitality from a great team. Everything is really easy. Will be back next year.

We spent a long weekend at this lodge which in winter is run as SkiWeekender during the ski season. We arrived at Geneva late on Thursday and the SW minibus was waiting for us, it took about an hour to get to the lodge where we were fitted up with ski’s boots etc the same evening. We were offered a...

Stayed in Aravis lodge on my own (slightly more expensive). Appreciated the privacy and ease of getting in and out and especially taken to the various ski resorts. Very fortunate for the weather to co-operate and had both Bornand and La Clusaz available for the 4 days. Also appreciate the ability to ski the last day and then immediately to...

Really great short holiday. Everything taken care of....ski passes, ski hire, transfers. Staff really helpful and accommodation nice. Very clean which is always a bonus. Food was excellent.....to be honest, couldn't have asked for much more. Oh and the skiing was really great too. I never go back to the same place but I would seriously consider going here again.

Wow! Where do I start? 'Ski Weekender' was faultless & made our holiday easy & trouble-free. Everything was sorted for us with no hassle after the flight, from ski passes to lessons to transfers. On arrival & throughout our stay every member of staff was very friendly, lovely & hospitable. We were also part of a great bunch of people...

We stayed in the Lodge - 2-5 Jan. I have numerous food intolerances and I ate like a queen. The vegan cake was so good I have come home with the recipe. The meals were delicious and perfect after a day on the slopes. Everything was so well organised without making us feel like we were being herded. Extra effort...

We had a great time over new year at the Aravis Lodge.. Ski weekender took care of everything - equipment hire, booking lessons, transfers, transport to the slopes each morning and great evening trips out. We all had a brilliant time and didn't need to organise anything ourselves which was great with a 7 and 5 year old. The food...

Having just been here for a 4 day Christmas break, the amenities at Aravis Lodge and the efforts of the Ski Weekender staff are second to none. Transfers to the slopes are arranged, hassle free and although Mother Nature is not currently being kind on the snow provision front we still got some good skiing in on what was available....

I don't normally write reviews but am sitting in our Hotel room and thought it a great opportunity to let everyone know about this Ski/Summer Lodge and the staff.

“Sorry, but I can only say that some of the guests had a couple of disturbed nights, as the snow ploughs were dumping snow and reversing (with beacons active) throughout the night time periods of snowfall. As for the room numbers - don't know. Guess these are at the front of the lodge.”
