The ski season will soon be upon us, and with it some choice, new-to-the-market chalets. Start in Verbier, where the former proprietors of Ski Verbier are offering No 14 Verbier (second picture, www.verbierexclusive.com; from £32,500 a week), which sleeps up to 28 guests over five floors. All wood-panelled Gemütlichkeit on the outside, the interiors are sumptuously appointed with flat screens, an indoor pool, a steam room and two spa treatment rooms.
To the east, in Saas Fee, Mountain Exposure (www.mountainexposure.com) has the lovely little four-bedroom Chalet Chloe (first picture, from £928 per person per week), with a charming, open-plan living-dining room, a wide south-facing deck, and a location two minutes’ walk from both Saas Fee village and the Hannig toboggan lift station.
