At Hucksters we aim to provide our guests with a fantastic ski or a snow boarding holiday to suit their budget. We would like to thank all of our guests who took the time to send us their feedback or left us a review on TripAdvisor. Below are some of the comments that we have received, we would be delighted to hear your feedback, please email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
By dispensing with things such as towels and complimentary toiletries (bring your own) and guaranteed en suite bathrooms, Hucksters has managed to create accommodation that is definitely communal and cheap but in that no-frills way that makes you feel pretty smug at the money you are saving. It has lodges in four resorts, and its Mont Blanc lodge in Vallandry, close to Les Arcs, sits right next to the piste. With a large lounge area where groups can mix, the atmosphere is friendly and laid-back without being manic.

We have travelled with Hucksters as both a school group and a family for an incredible 18 years. Never have I worked with a company who is so flexible and accommodating to individual needs. The ski and board options are exciting and varied to suit all abilities, from novice to the extreme, from door step skiing to the more adventurous. The staff are always friendly, fun and keen to ensure everyone has a memorable holiday and the comprehensive package is great value for money.

Just wanted to let you know I had a great holiday last week thanks and wanted to say that the staff were all really friendly & helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to return.
Just back from a fabulous week in Vallandry. The lodge was great and the location to the lifts perfect. I wanted to say thank you for all your help and the wonderful staff, they are all good bunch and made us feel very welcome. Please let them know we did appreciate their hard work, and smiles every day, they are all stars.
Just a quick note to thank you all for hosting the Bennett clan the other week, we had a great time and are hoping to return with Hucksters for the new year.
Hucksters, are to be highly recommended as they offer a very personalised service at package deal prices and take a genuine interest in making sure you have a good time. I have done 4 trips with them in the last 2 years so they must be doing something right!
If you're looking for 5* accommodation where chalet girls wash your feet and sing you to sleep, just stop reading now. If you're not one of the privileged elite, but still want to see snow once or twice a year, head here.
I cannot really fault any aspect of the holiday. If you want a low cost skiing holiday in a cute lodge up a beautiful mountain, right on the slopes, with a full 8 days skiing - then you cannot get better than this. We shall certainly be returning next winter.
The staff were more like friends than employees and knew the area very well. Can't fault them. They sorted an issue with my wife's ski pass with as little stress as was possible.
To start your day of skiing one had only to walk about 20m from the door, pop your skis on and off you go. You could either ski down to the main Vallandry chair-lift, or walk 20m up a slight slope to get on the Grizzly chair-lift. Brilliant.
This is the 4th year we have stayed at Mont Blanc, we have opted for the en suite accommodation in PMB. If you are looking for 5 star luxury look else where as you will be disappointed, if however, you are looking for a fun friendly atmosphere where you can wear slippers or ski boots for a week then this is the place. The location could not be better, at the bottom of the Grizzly lift and a quick ski down to the main Vallandry lift.

What to expect from the French Alps this Winter | Hucksters Lodge
13 November 2020
Hoping for a ski break to the French Alps this season? Here’s what to expect when you get out on the slopes.
We just wanted to say, we had the most marvellous time in the Mont Blanc recently. We were very happy in the Petit Mont Blanc Annexe & the staff were absolutely fantastic. They all went out of their way to ensure we had a fantastic holiday.
I look each year to find a better value ski holiday and fail. I love the staff, the resort and the accomodation. And the coach, to me it makes flying very uncomfortable and un civilised, Dont change a thing Hucksters you are providing exactly what I want. Roll on next season......
My girlfriend and I stayed in Vallandry with Hucksters for 6 days and had a great time with a very friendly environment including not only the staff, but also the other customers. The room was also nice, warm and very functional with the slopes only few meters away from the chalet. Therefore and according to all these elements, I can only recommend Hucksters to anyone looking for a great skiing experience.
