One lucky Where to Ski and Snowboard reader has booked a holiday he won by reporting for us this year.

Every year, WTSS relies on hundreds of reader reports to compile our new edition, and as a thank you to our loyal followers we offer 100 free books for the best reports submitted. Each of those reporters is entered into a draw to win a stay in a Lagrange apartment for up to four people.

This year’s winner was Barry Patrick from Chepstow in Monmouthshire and he has just booked his prize to stay in Les Gets in January with his wife, Kathryn, daughter Rosie and her partner, Tom.

“I will also be going to Warth in March as well and will be sure to send a report in,” said Mr Patrick.

“My reports last year were from Val d’Isère and Les Arcs. I’ve been sending in reports for about three or four years — and the previous season (2011/2012) I also won a book for a report based on Saalbach-Hinterglemm!

Lagrange UK managing director Rebecca Maffeis said Mr Patrick and his family have booked to stay Lagrange’s most popular Prestige residence, Les Fermes Emiguy. The apartments are 400m from the lifts and have wifi, an indoor pool, sauna and steam room with extras such as a bakery service and pre-bookable food hamper.

“We discussed the various different options that would suit him, such as the Lagrange Prestige Le Hameau du Rocher Blanc in Serre-Chevalier as it is close to the slopes and he’d like to ski that domain, but he has picked Les Gets as it is a larger town and a shorter drive from Calais (8 hours).”

Ms Maffeis added: “It was a pleasure speaking with Barry and helping him to pick the ski resort, self-catering apartment and Lagrange residence that would suit him and his family best.”

If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning next year, find out how to send us a report from your ski trip this season here.

Prices for Les Fermes Emiguy start at £346 per week for a studio apartment for two people. For more information visit
