About us and our service…

A family run business

Alpine Culture was founded by Ben Farley snd Heidi Luomanen, and still have an active role in running the company. They have created a team of passionate skiers and hospitality professionals who are enthusiastic about providing you with the best skiing holiday you have ever had.


Starting with the renovation and management of Chalet du Rassel 13 years ago. Then in 2010 overseeing the purchase, development and design of Chalet La Tene on behalf of its owner. Recently we have expanded into Tignes with the stunning Chalets Opale and Ambre which means we can now offer something for everyone.

A culture or enthusiasm

We work hard to find the right staff year after year. We employ only like minded, ski-driven, hospitality professionals who get a kick out of exceeding guest expectations.We have guests that return year after year seeking the high level of service and helpful and friendly chalet staff we always deliver.

Local Experts

Operating in the luxury chalet business for over a decade has given us extensive knowledge of the local area and the industry. We have trusted partners we work with in restaurants, ski schools and child care to ensure that our level of service is extended beyond the chalet.

Your skis waiting at the chalet

When you get to the chalet, the last thing you want to do is go out into town and queue for your skis in a shop. Sit back and relax with a glass of champagne! We will have your skis waiting for you. Our experienced technicians offer a personalised fitting service in-chalet to cater to your individual requirements.

Picked up by a member of the team

When you come on holiday with Alpine Culture, you leave you stress at the airport. We take care of everything from the moment you step off the plane. You will be picked up by one of our experienced drivers in one of our VW Caravelles, stocked with refreshments. The moment you get to the chalet there will be champagne and a warm roaring fire waiting for you.
