Top 5 Luxury Family Ski Chalets

Family Ski Chalet | Moving Mountains

Imagine spending 100% of your next family vacation relaxing and making memories with friends and family.  It’s all possible when you stay at a Moving Mountains luxury catered ski chalet. 

What is a catered ski chalet you might ask? At Moving Mountains, this simply means a mountain home where you enjoy meals prepared and served (catered) by full-time staff.  We borrowed the term Chalet from the Alps of Europe, where this unique and luxurious vacation concept was born. 

 For over 20 years we have pioneered Catered Ski Chalet packages in Colorado with a team of experienced in-house staff and private vehicles to provide the superlative guest experience. It begins with one of our exceptional mountain homes which feature luxurious touches throughout.  The stunning interior and exterior finishes compliment high-end kitchens, wood or gas burning fireplaces, great views and space for everyone to relax.  The homes typically have more than four bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a media room or a home theater, games, and a private outdoor hot tub.

Our Luxury Catered Chalet packages include private airport pickup, a personal chef and staff preparing and serving delicious meals, private chauffeured vehicle service throughout your stay, daily housekeeping and concierge service that takes care of even the smallest details. You will only have to focus on your time with family and friends.  Your hosts will take care of the rest.
