Business Directory

St Christopher’s School Business Directory is an opportunity for Past Pupils, Parents (current & past), and staff to advertise their business to the School Community. We hope the School Community will use this as a starting point when requiring a service or looking for a particular provider. It is a complimentary online initiative however we do invite a donation if a business wishes to do so or generates a significant income as a result of an introduction via the directory.

BLACKROCK SKI LODGE

We offer luxury ski holidays and all year-round sports holidays from our Les Houches chalet – BlackRock Ski Lodge.

Nestled on the mountainside above the Chamonix valley our Les Houches accommodation is ski in/walk out in the winter – one of only a handful of luxury chalets that can make that claim – and is available on a fully-catered or self-catered basis.

BlackRock Ski Lodge is also one of the few catered chalets in Les Houches to boast a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence which we believe reflects the delight we take in providing the highest levels of service to our guests.

In addition to luxury ski holidays and all year-round sports holidays, the Lodge is also available for rental on a self-catered basis in the summer. So, if you’d like all the facilities of a hotel in a private luxury chalet in Les Houches, then look no further.

We look forward to helping you create the perfect holiday.
