First slide

Introduction to skiing, from the age of three
A child will get used to his or her first skis, become self sufficient, and discover all the fun of the snow. Annie Famose and her team have developed an original teaching method based on the use of games.

The teaching team share the pleasure of sliding on safe, comfortable, terrain to the theme of cartoon characters ; 25 acres of fenced and controlled pistes that have been specially developed for children (slides and bumps, mini tracks, coloured runs, small jumps… ). There is a moving carpet and a beginners teleski. Children can have lunch and snacks in the Children's Village and enjoy numerous après ski activities such as dolls, reading, drawing, theatre, films, dressing-up and face painting, shows…in a superb chalet that is perfectly equipped and set-up for small children.
