Specialist French Alps ski tour operator Peak Retreats has become the first to offer Praz de Lys to the British market.

Just 40 minutes from Geneva Airport, sitting at 1500m in the Giffre Valley, Praz de Lys is surrounded by trees and has stunning views of Mont Blanc. Virtually unknown to the UK, Praz de Lys is a perfect resort for families with a great beginners’ area, 56 slopes between 1240m and 1965m, a snow park, and 60km of cross-country skiing.

Where to Ski and Snowboard 2016 says of Praz de Lys: “It has nicely varied skiing and its snow-pocket location means it can have better conditions than neighbouring resorts such as La Clusaz.”

Peak Retreats is offering a variety of accommodation in Praz de Lys including the centrally located 3* apartments Les Soldanelles, just 120m from the ski lifts, the nursery slopes and the ski school meeting point. Snow permitting, skiers can ski back to the residence and there is an indoor heated pool and spa facilities. Prices from £208pp for seven nights’ self-catering.

Peak Retreats has also introduced new apartments to the programme in La Rosiere, Morillon, Les Saisies, Les Carroz, La Clusaz, Vallorcine and Chamonix. For more information visit
