Second trip with Tri4thealps and couldn't fault anything. Excellent guidance from Joe and Amelia and great food too. The location of the chalet close to the lake in Montriond is excellent, and only a short walk to Morzine. Great way to meet some like minded athletes too.

I had a very enjoyable week of triathlon training at Brown Bear Lodge with the tri4theAlps team. Lodge is in a quiet location not far from centre of Montriand. Can occasionally hear owls in evening. Everything went smoothly from prompt pick up at Geneva airport to drop off for flight home. Nothing was too much trouble for hosts Amelia, Joe,...

This was our third stay at Brown Bear with Reach 4 the Alps & it didn't fail to disappoint. The welcome, food & standard of accommodation really are first class. Our chalet hosts looked after us well from the cake waiting for us each day on return from the slopes to the fizz & canapés served by the fire before...

Hard to beat this chalet and the set up- and we"ve been chalet holidaying for the last 18 years.. Very spacious, lovely bedrooms and sitting area. Food was fab, lift service to the slopes a godsend, and all loved the hot tub. Chalet hosts were great- and Chelsea's cakes were to die for. Discovered Brown Bear 4 years ago and...

Having never done a chalet before I was a bit apprehensive as to what to expect. It was a fantastic break ALL the staff were excellent. We were the guests from hell with lost luggage and a hospital visit during our stay Kelly and Adam could not have been any more helpful and really did go the extra mile !...

We could not recommend Brown Bear Lodge more highly. The lodge is beautiful and the accomodation very comfortable indeed with ample cosy seating around the log fire in the living room, excellent sauna and lovely outdoor hot tub. Meals prepared by Liam and Chelsea were excellent and substantial, and the transfers to and from the airport, and from chalet to...

For my first experience of a chalet ski trip, it couldn't have been better. Having previously stayed in hotels, my wife and I decide to go for the chalet option this year. The rooms were very spacious and our one had a bath in (which we paid a bit extra for to get). Having 14 adults guests proved to be...
