The Source Awards for Excellence

During yesterday’s Source Suppliers Show on Lac Montriond, the finalists in each category of our Source Awards gathered for the announcement of our winners.

In this first year of the awards, the objective was to recognise the local businesses that go out of their way to make holiday makers happy. Happy holiday makers make for a busy, successful resort, and then everyone benefits. It’s for this reason that we asked the public to tell us their favourite businesses in four categories:


The finalists were:

Skizeen – La Ferme du Lac Vert
More Mountain
Mountain Mavericks

Our independent judges selected their winner using the comments left in nomination forms. These included:

“So much effort and talent has gone into not just designing this beautiful place, but maintaining a most welcome atmosphere through great staff and ambience.”

“The hosts are wonderful, and the accommodation is luxurious, but not pretentious and of the highest standard. They think of everything!”

“Beautiful decor, warm and cosy beds, fantastic dining area, log fires and everything you could possibly wish for on holiday.”

WINNER – Skizeen, La Ferme du Lac Vert

From a collection of 40 different nominations, our judges selected the following stand-out comments:

“Every meal is consistently not just good but fantastic. All of our party were extremely impressed. The standard was that of a high end restaurant.”

“We ate delicious gourmet food and how she produced it so effortlessly I just don’t know. A favourite was her shredded duck but everything was amazing. The icecreams were sensational. It was better than restaurant food every night!”

“The flavours, presentation and variability in the menus was outstanding as well as the well thought out wine pairings”

“Amazing customer service from booking through to departure at end of holiday. Went out of their way to provide a great holiday and were invaluable when we needed support after a broken bone!”
