  Pralognan is easy to reach, situated in a bowl at the end of a 27km drive from Moutiers, following the road which starts towards Courchevel and Meribel. The road is a good one, but you should carry chains in case of snowfall. Pralognan is almost unknown by the British. You can ski directly from your apartment and the slopes and lifts are never crowded.

Pralognan may be a little smaller than the larger resorts nearby, but it more than makes up for it with its other charms. The slopes are top quality, with some nice challenging blacks for the adventurous, right down to plenty of 'easy snow' for the beginner. Prices are reasonable, and people are friendly and helpful. The views are stunning. The local ESF provides ski, snowboard and snowblade instructors of a high quality - maybe helped by the fact that many of them used to be on the Olympic team! Along with the great skiing there is an Olympic skating rink and plenty of night life, including a very lively discotheque.
