[R1708R, Les Saisies] is giving families a way to save money on almost everything the French resort has to offer. With the discount card 'Carte Easy' families will get price reductions on ski passes, lessons, gear hire, accommodation, refreshments, and more.

There is a three-person minimum per card and it costs €5 per person. For example, for one parent and two children (under 18) or two parents and one child, the card costs €15. For two parents and two children, the card costs €20 and the card is valid for both summer and winter 2010.

On the ski side, the card means that you will get half off a day's ski pass for children under 18 and a free ski pass for those under six on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Several gear renters offer a 20-percent discount, and ski lessons will cost 10 percent less with the Carte Easy.

On the resort side, several bars and restaurants take 10 percent off the bill on Wednesdays and weekends, while the Tahiti Eden Spa lets you savor two hours in a Turkish steam bath for 20 percent less. Of course you'll need somewhere to sleep, so Alpes Savoie Voyages gives cardholders a free night with the purchase of one night's accommodation (starting at €45 per person).

To obtain the card, you can either download, fill out, and mail the form on Les Saisies' Web site or purchase the card directly at the lift counter.
