Peak Retreats have been named Best Ski Operator at the Telegraph Travel Awards 2023.
The awards have been running since 1998, but last took place in 2019, when Peak Retreats also triumphed. The annual awards are decided by votes from Telegraph readers, with over 27,000 readers voting this year for their favourite destinations, airlines and travel companies.
Xavier Schouller, Peak Retreats Co-Founder said:
“We are thrilled to have been named Best Ski Operator by the Telegraph for the second time in a row. It means so much to us that discerning Telegraph readers, who we know are keen skiers, have recognised us with this award.”
“We are passionate about skiing in the French Alps and over the past 20 years we have developed our range of resorts and accommodation to encompass both traditional village resorts away from the crowds, yet with access to superb slopes, and the world-renowned winter destinations for which the French Alps is known. We’re delighted that this award confirms that what we offer, from our service to our range of resorts, resonates with UK skiers,” Mr Schouller continued, concluding,
“We couldn’t have achieved this without our brilliant team, who know our resorts inside out, enabling them to help clients find a ski holiday that is perfect for their party. Thank you to everyone who voted, we look forward to sharing our passion for the French Alps with even more skiers in the coming winters.”
The company, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, was founded by Xavier Schouller and Nathalie Soma in 2002. It prides itself in encouraging its clients to discover unspoilt traditional French ski villages, as well as high-altitude resorts, with a programme of over 70 ski resorts across the French Alps. The company’s strengths include an excellent network of local contacts in the French Alps and a unique perspective, combining a passionate UK-based team and French know-how.
The company’s highly experienced reservations team know Peak Retreats’ resorts inside out. Many of the team have been with the company for over 15 years, and have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share.
Peak Retreats’ other recent accolades include The Times Travel Editor’s Award (2018), a Family Traveller Excellence Award (2019), Best Family Ski Operator at the Family Traveller Awards (2018).
