In 2001, the Pilatus chalet was refurbished for the fourth time. Martine and Michel found a mountain-loving architect, Christopher Unterkofler (former high-level skier), who worked in the deep
depths of an Austrian valley, who in three years, managed to transform the Pilatus into a cosy mountain refuge. Wood and stones were given pride of place and a new trend was set in Courchevel.
There was no more self-service restaurant, this time it became a typical Savoyard restaurant with food served at each table. The restaurant was named Le Pilatus in reference to the emblematic
plane which flew with Air Alpes for over 20 years.
