Why Sommand – Praz de Lys?

This is fabulous skiing, on over 50 unspoiled runs, served by 24 ski lifts, that spread out over several mountain sides and forest trails. Have a quick look at the resort video here.

These runs beg to be discovered and at times you will feel like you have the place to yourself. The resort remains a well guarded secret known only to local Alpine families and the nearby Swiss. So far it has escaped the mass tourism and concrete hotels of the resorts next door. Service is personal, with a focus on families and the skiing offers plenty of choice.

All skiing levels catered for.

Praz de Lys - Sommand ski resort

Praz de Lys – Sommand ski resort

Private ski tuition and ski schools are all available. For absolute beginners there is a newly installed ski tow known as “the magic carpet” (“tapis magique”) which provides small children with a safe start at Sommand. The main lift, restaurants and facilities are all easily accessible from your car which makes lift tickets, restaurants and ski hire can all be done within a few metres unlike the mass market resorts where increasingly large hotels, shops and queues dominate and get in the way.

The Sommand mountains has a protected national park status and development is strictly controlled. As a result the area is very popular for both cross country skiers and mountain ski-touring (ski randonnée). Mountain guides can be booked in advance to take you over the mountains, ski touring for the day if you wish.


we would love to hear from you!
