Chalet Christine

The Ski House of the Day is Chalet Christine in the French Alps ski resort of La Tania.  The chalet sits among the pines just above the gondola which can be accessed by skiing down through the trees, or walking across the bridge that connects to the village.  La Tania, a pedestrian village, was originally created for the 1992 Albertville Olympic Games, and is now a popular alternative to the more exclusive resorts that share the mountain area.

The Chalet Christine is a traditional alpine style log cabin built out of Russian pine.  I love the warmth of the  logs, the wood beamed ceiling and the beautiful wooden floors in the living room area (good thing there's a ski room on the first floor to remove the ski boots!):

The long dining room table looks like a nice place to enjoy some French cuisine...and of course French bread.  (Something that caught my eye about this catered chalet is the unlimited table wine during dinner).

This chalet has plenty of room for a big group in its 14 bedrooms!  So cozy with all the logs:

So what does this chalet look like when it's full of skiers?  Check out this video tour, which includes a walk through the chalet, the view from the snowy third floor balcony, a ride up the gondola, and the skiers view from the slopes (...or skip to about 25 min. into the video if you just want to see some great steep couloir skiing there).

Chalet Christine looks like a really nice chalet in a really great ski resort.  Magnifique!
