Chalet Talenti is based in La Plagne 1800, in the heart of the Paradiski resort - the world’s 4th largest ski area! This fully catered chalet sleeps 16 guests, has an outdoor sauna and it’s just a 5 minute walk to the nearest lift: Melezes, La Plagne 1800.
Chalet Talenti is a traditionally built chalet, set amongst the trees and has a split-level sitting area with an open fireplace. Six bedrooms have full en-suite facilities whilst the remaining two bedrooms share a shower room. The open plan dining area has doors leading to a balcony with views across the valley and the ski area. The chalet is just a 2 minute walk into the village and well positioned for quick access to two ski bus stops.

The chalet is located just a stone's throw away from all the action of La Plagne 1800: hit Le Mine bar for apres ski, and if you manage to get bored of the nightlife in La Plagne 1800 (a tricky feat since the village is buzzing at night) there’s a regular bus service running between La Plagne 1800, Plagne Centre and Plagne Bellecote until midnight. The Bura gang will be able to show you around the best bars - just another one of our professional responsibilities.
The Paradiski area offers 425km of piste - 225 on-piste runs in La Plagne, and by hopping on the Vanoise cable car, you can access another 200km of runs in Les Arcs - we challenge you to try riding them all in a week!
With two half pipes, an inflatable big air jump, two terrain parks, boardercross runs as well as incredible off-piste options, this is a world-renowned resort for a reason.
For beginners, there’s tons of options with a huge variety of wide, long green and blue pistes to try. Take a lesson with our English-speaking ski instructors, and you’ll be riding in no time!
With such a large ski area there are heaps of blues and reds for intermediates to try - make sure you take the long run down to Champagny from La Grande Rochette and the Mont Blanc run is one of our favourite tree-lined runs in the whole resort. Feeling more confident? Hop on the cable car and explore Les Arcs!
For the advanced Bura riders, the Paradiski area is a dream setup. Picture riding epic powder through the trees down to Les Coches or Montalbert, drop off the Bellecote mountain (with a guide!) or challenge yourself to glacier skiing on the Glacier du Varet. From exploring the sheer range of off-piste, checking out our two snow parks or visiting the Avalanche Training Centre to perfect your backcountry skills, you’ll find it impossible to be bored here with such an insanely varied range of terrain and extra activities.
A 6 day La Plagne lift pass is included in your package. An upgrade to the full Paradiski area pass is available for £30

All group lessons have a maximum of 8 people per group, are English speaking and you’ll have people sharing your lessons who are exactly the same standard as you. If your level changes during the course of your lessons you can be moved groups according to your progress if you like.
We can also arrange off-piste guiding and tuition, and freestyle / board park tuition.
Airport transfers are included in your package and can be from either Geneva or Chambery airports.
Our transfers on the outbound journey depart Geneva at 1400 approx. so we ask for flights to land as close as possible to this time to avoid you having to wait for too long at the airport (however of course if you wish to get an early flight, which are often the cheapest option, there are plenty of cafes, restaurants etc. do spend some time before the transfer).
On the return journey, we leave the chalet at approx. 7am to ensure there is ample time to reach the airport, particularly in peak weeks when traffic is busy, or when there is heavy snow fall. We ask that no departure flights are booked to depart Geneva prior to 12.30pm at the earliest. If you have a later return flight and have some time to spare, when we drop you at Geneva airport we can direct you to left luggage and there is a train from the airport terminal into Geneva centre which only takes 7 minutes and is a nice way to spend the afternoon or have a long lunch.
Transfers to / from Chambery airport are also possible. Our transfer minibuses can travel via Chambery airport en route from Geneva to the chalet (and vice versa on the return journey).
The transfer minibus will pass through Chambery at approx. 1530 on the outbound journey and around 0830-0900 on the homeward journey, so we require flights into Chambery to land before 1430 and depart the following week after 1130.
There is a surcharge for the Chambery pickup / drop off of £20pp.
No need to book the whole chalet, just book the room or rooms of your choice.
An under-occupancy charge will apply if, for instance, you have one person in a twin / double room, two people in a triple room or three people in a quad room (£250 per bed).
All prices quoted include the full package of catered chalet accommodation, 6 day lift pass, ski or snowboard hire and return airport transfers (subject to flight times) from Geneva or Chambery airports.
Discounts are available for kids aged 12 and under or having your own ski or snowboard equipment.
Prices do not include flights or travel insurance.
All holidays can be paid for in interest-free monthly instalments from the time of booking until the month prior to the holiday starting. Exact instalment amounts will be advised upon receiving your booking requirements.

"The food was outstanding, we were amazed how Kevin and Olly produced such high quality meals with no stress and a fun, friendly and chatty atmosphere. Bura's prices include chalet catering, unlimited wine, transfer, skipass and ski hire: all organised smoothly and efficiently so no hidden costs and reasonably priced. We were so impressed"
