Rude is a company that rents chalets in the heart of the Alps, around Morzine, France. They’ve now gone and got themselves a third high-quality chalet for snowboarders – all bedrooms are en suite and decked out rude style with flat screen TVs/DVDs/CD/PlayStaion2 games consoles. It is a three-minute drive up to the Prodains ski lift, giving direct access to the legendary Avoriaz board parks (free morning lift runs provided) and it is within staggering distance of Morzine’s après-ski bars and late night clubs. They’ve even purchased two Garlando 5000 table footballs, which are great for alternative apres-ski entertainment and late night beer-fuelled footie tournaments! And they’ve even installed free-to-use wireless Internet access in the flagship chalet, Christophe, so work can’t keep you in the office! Also, to make sure you don’t get left behind on a hire plank, they have an Option snowboard in their on-site test centre for every occasion. Check www.rudechalets.com for more info.
