Overview

A new pedigree of pioneer

The final climb up from Täsch feels like coming home. An avid skier and mountain enthusiast you’ve skied other resorts, but your heart belongs to Zermatt. Disembark at the train station but this time let the staff whisk you to the new prestigious 7 Heavens development. Vying for attention as the most iconic peak in town, you can almost see the battle unfolding between the Matterhorn and Chalet Mckinley.

Just like the efforts of Harry Karstens, Hudson Stuck, Walter Harper and Robert Tatum on 7th June 1913, as the party leader you have the privilege of being the first to summit Chalet Mckinley. Those hardy four may have chosen to take the South Summit but we prefer to use the elevator to reach the peak of the fourth floor. As exclaimed by Tatum, "The view from the top of Mount McKinley is like looking out the windows of Heaven!" From your impressive floor to vaulted ceiling windows in the tremendous open-plan living room, we reckon your private viewing of the Matterhorn might just draw such comparisons.

Eyebrows will continue to rise and jaws will continue to drop upon further exploration of Chalet Mckinley’s über-luxurious facilities. Sleeping ten of your nearest and dearest intrepid Alpine pioneers, your home for the week has five breath taking ensuite bedrooms. With both master bedrooms furnished with sumptuous sofas in decadent velvet hues, you might reconsider using them purely as a place to discard old socks.

For the future explorers in your party, the playroom will inspire their minds with its revolving television and be their sanctuary for the week. Just like them, we understand quite how tough we have made the notion of going skiing. Just as Walter Harper was an Alaskan native, take it from your friends in high places and natives of Zermatt, that we would only recommend the most extravagant and luxurious of private residences to you. 

Chalet Mckinley is somewhere you’ll never want to leave, just like the impending doom felt by the first explorers of Alaska’s highest peak when faced with leaving their tents. Whilst hours were spent hibernating from the forces of Alaskan nature, diarizing their previous days, maybe don’t mention to Karstens, Stuck, Harper and Tatum how you will be spending your days hunkered down away from the depths of winter.

Chalet Mckinley’s sublime private spa and wellness area is the ultimate place to while away a white out day or to rejuvenate those intrepid limbs. However, a polar bear plunge this most definitely is not. With an indoor hot tub, hammam, sauna, plunge pool and chill out area, Chalet Mckinley’s second floor is an oasis of rejuvenation and serenity.

With the limbs supple and tomorrow promising the first outstanding bluebird day of the week, you are prepped and ready to conquer the Matterhorn Ski Paradise. Located in the heart of Zermatt, Chalet Mckinley provides an enviable short stroll to its neighbor, the Sunnegga lift, enabling you to be on the ski slopes in just three minutes. You often wonder what you did before being introduced to your friends in high places.

With a goggle tan any pioneer would be proud of and lungs full of the freshest of air, you are rather excited about the prospect of returning to your slice of 7 Heavens. Entering into the towering entrance hallway, Tom, the bartender, knows exactly which is your favourite rejuvenating tipple. With boots deposited in the ski room, ssh don’t tell that to those four of 1913 fame, Tom even has today’s newspaper laid out for you in front of the roaring fire. Service at its finest.

Above you, on the upper floor, you will find the shared state of the art gym. Don’t worry, your chalet manager saw the initial look of horror upon arrival and has ensured that the massage room on Chalet Mckinley’s second floor is reserved for you. You’re on holiday and these magical hours of après are yours to spend just as you wish. After all, you want to be rejuvenated for tonight’s soirée.

Not only is Chalet Mckinley at the pinnacle of luxury but also at the pinnacle of fine dining. Your SkiBoutique PA has already worked with your chef to ensure that the perfect menu is designed for your favourite week, along with tonight’s seven course evening meal. Fortunately with Chalet Mckinley’s professional kitchen on the ground floor, supper is a seamless affair with a sense of heightened excitement when dinner wondrously appears for all to marvel at and enjoy.

We know that you deserve only the summit of luxury.

Gastronome

Do you love food? I don't know many people that don't - there is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. But when that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience of high end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We hand-pick our chalet partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered ski chalets: 

A perfect start to the day

No need to rush out of bed - breakfast is laid on. A healthy array of fresh fruit juices, a selection of warming teas and coffee - yoghurts, crispy cereals, juicy fruit and a mouth-watering display of delicious fresh breads & delicate pastries. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? So much choice that you might miss the first ski lift if you're not careful. 

 

High tea temptations

Come back after a wonderful day on the mountain to the warmth and comfort of your chalet. Snuggle up on the comfy sofa in front of a crackling fire, with a steaming cup of tea and a generous serving of cake – this is how all afternoons should be. Your chef will prepare a fresh from the oven, sweet treat for your return, so whether your preference is for a hearty sticky Apple and Ginger cake or a delicate Mille-feuille aux framboise is more your thing, there will be something tempting waiting for you. Personally I don’t think you can beat a slice of crispy baguette with lashings of butter and dollops of apricot jam or nutella - but maybe that ‘s just me - the perfect comfort food.

 

Celebrate with Canapés 

When staying in a catered chalet every night feels like a special occasion, and why shouldn't it, you're on an amazing holiday and it's so good to be alive. You’re dressed and ready for a glass of something chilled with friends and family, ready to regale them with tales of your mountain adventures that may get a little exaggerated for dramatic effect with each rendition. Enjoy the delicious canapés and amuse-bouche freshly prepared by your star in the kitchen. 

 

Serving up a sensuous feast

Take a seat at your own private table - it's time for the main event – a delicious feast, masterfully crafted by your talented chef. With an emphasis on using hand-selected, fresh, local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt in your mouth three course dinner that wouldn't look out of place in a Michelin starred restaurant. Dinner is complimented by a tangy platter of divine local cheeses. Menus can be tailored to suit your tastes and your chef will be happy to prepare everything from a simple supper to fine dining delights. 

 

Let the good times flow 

The chalet provides an open bar of beer, wines, spirits and mixers. 

 

Children & dietary requirements 

The chalet is happy to cater for specific dietary requirements, and will serve an earlier high tea for children. You can talk to your SkiBoutique PA about any specific requests from dietary requirements such as gluten free diets to birthday cakes and favourite dishes. We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted and delivered in resort.
