Praz de Lys-Sommand

Praz de Lys-Sommand is a family oriented ski resort in the Haute-Savoie. Its ski area is centred around two villages located on the plateaus of Sommand and Praz de Lys. They are traditional mountain villages with wooden chalets and residences surrounded by pine trees.

The ski slopes of Praz de Lys-Sommand are on both sides of the same mountain so you can ski in the sun all day with fantastic views of the Mont-Blanc, Aravis, Chablais and Jura mountain ranges.
