3 points that tell our hostel's story....

1. Restaurant & Hotel 

Our chalet and hostel began life under its previous owners as a restaurant and hotel, named Relais de Dranse, with the upstairs rooms being renovated in 2014, meaning our hostel guests can still enjoy modern comfort.

2. Our arrival

We bought the chalet from its previous owners in August 2017, with the idea of using it as a location for our summer language camps  and as a private rental for groups, which the chalet is used as outside the ski season.

3. Birth of the ski hostel

Being keen skiers and both having worked as ski instructors earlier in life, we came up with the idea of turning the chalet into a ski hostel for the winter.

We trailed the idea in February 2018 by putting together a group of international participants from the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Malta, Poland, Turkey, Russia and Serbia.

It was a great success, so in 2018 we decided to go for it for real!
