Hotel La Boule de Neige – Rooms

The hotel offers 21 ensuite bedrooms across 2 chalet buildings. Each room also has a flat-screen TV. Some of the rooms have a balcony with fantastics panoramic views of the Grand Massif mountains, and the valley below.

Hotel La Boule de Neige – Social Facilities

After a day on the slopes, enjoy the sunny terrace for a drink or the hotel does feature a jacuzzi and sauna. It also has a games room with pool table, but the hotel does lack a lounge or cosy space in which to relax. However, just 50m away is a very cool and chic auberge-bar which is a favourite apres-ski hang out.

The hotel is located 2km from Samoëns town centre, where you will find much more going on if you want some livelier après-ski. There is a bus to Samoëns until 6pm which takes 5 minutes, or you can take a taxi for around €10.

Hotel La Boule de Neige – Food

Catering is on a half board basis, and includes a continental breakfast and 3 course evening meal, featuring traditional French cuisine, and Savoyard specialities.

The food is very good, and comes in generous portions, ideal after an energetic day skiing.

Hotel Boule de Neige – Location & Skiing Access

The hotel is located in the pretty hamlet of Vercland, just 2km from Samoens village and 1 hour 10 minutes airport transfer from Geneva.

The Vercland Saix Gondola is just across from the hotel which gives you quick access to the whole of the Grand Massif ski area.

There is just one bar in the hamlet which boasts a lively après-ski, and the main village of Samoëns, which has a good selection of restaurants, bars, shops, banks and other services, is a 2km downhill walk or a 5 minute bus ride. Buses stop around 6 pm and there are some taxis available if you don’t fancy the walk back!
