Full review

A secret ski paradise of two villages within minutes of the Grand Massif on one side and Les Gets-Morzine on the other. But seemingly the exclusive preserve of local French families? Beautiful trails through soaring pines and varied open winter landscapes all unfold over the 60km of downhill at all levels. Praz de Lys has the sort of pillowy snow topped chalets that are a thought to exist in dreams - some old, some new - dotted amongst rolling sea of snow and pine - Narnia for familys. There is a distinct lack of abrasive shouts from Londoners, high on their yearly release from dreary offices. And gone are the hectic lift queues and the M25 bottlenecks of Samoens/Morillon. Hire your own chalet with your family or close friends, and ignore the plastic distractions in the commercial resorts. A days skiing here is under 20€
