Hey ho, bookings are all go

Winter is coming, snow is falling and we’re taking bookings like you’ll never know.

So get your skates on if you don’t won’t to miss out on a fabulous stay in Chamonix.

We’re celebrating the snow with a gratituous excuse for a dose of more Hey Ho in splendid black and white, by the delightfully named Gin Wigmore.

And if that’s not catchy enough for you, how about some 24 hours of happy?

How would you prefer to pay?

At the moment, we handle chalet rental payment by bank transfers between guests and the chalet owner.

We’re considering alternatives.

So we’d love to answer just two questions:

Find the hi ho! easter egg for a 3% discount!

As a welcome treat for guests and casual readers alike, we’ve scoured the musical archives of all that is Hey and Ho and fastidiously compiled eighteen of the finest tracks in a Spotify chplaylist as homage to those bawls.

Featuring the likes of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Jimi Hendrix, Wilson Pickett, Train, Jamiroquai, The Cardigans – and a load of bands whose name may escape you, but their sonically infectious tunes will definitely revive your memory –  the compilation is guaranteed to have you flexing your hips, rocking in the free world and shakin’ it like a Polaroid picture! on and off the piste.

So we’ve buried it somewhere on this website as an easter egg  – as it’s affectionately known in the trade. We challenge you to find it. It’s less tricky to discover if you are not using a tablet or a mobile.

Track down the Spotify playlist and we’ll apply a 3% discount when you make your first reservation. Up for it?

Offer expires Oct 31st, 2013.

Help us settle an argument

Now we’re not completely sure if we should spell it heigh ho – the official way of the classic song, or hey ho – more hipster like, or perhaps the preferred hi ho! – succinct and nicely shouty.

So we’ve mixed it up a bit around the site.

How would you spell and pronounce it?

We’d love to hear from you.
