Peak Retreats is celebrating its 20th year of organising ski holidays to France.
The Portsmouth-based company, founded by Xavier Schouller and Nathalie Soma in 2002, prides itself in encouraging its clients to discover unspoilt French alpine resorts and has grown over the years, winning numerous awards along the way.
“We set up Peak Retreats in 2002, to give skiers the opportunity to discover real Alpine France. Over the last 20 years we’ve added numerous resorts to the programme. I’m extremely proud of our team at Peak Retreats, and their passion for sharing their love of the real French Alps, with our clients.” Xavier Schouller, one of Peak Retreats’ founders.
Having started offering a choice of 17 French ski areas, it now offers holidays to more than 75, the most comprehensive range of resorts across the French Alps.
An excellent network of local contacts in the French Alps and a unique perspective, combining a passionate team and French know-how, is the secret to Peak Retreats’ success.
The team celebrated its 20-year milestone earlier this week with a special anniversary dinner – with previous team members from over the years joining them.
Some of the current Peak Retreats team have been with the company since almost the outset, illustrating the expertise within the team. Two new additions have joined the company during its 20th year; two apprentices, who also happen to be 20 years old this year.
“It’s really exciting to have been able to welcome two apprentices to our marketing and client services teams. They are a real asset to the business, and we’re delighted to be able to help them develop their careers in such a fantastic industry.” Alison Willis, General Manager, Peak Retreats.
As well as picking up a host of awards over the years, the operator is proud to be current holder of the Telegraph award for Best Ski Operator.
