Younger children

Next door to the top of Grand Massif Express is a designated ski area for children from the age of 3. The Jardin des Neiges (the "Snow Garden") is fully equipped to keep younger children entertained (while you enjoy the slopes.) The garden is an ideal safe and fun environment for them to learn to enjoy this beautiful winter playground and become familiar with the equipment.

There's even a small chalet for them to warm up in should they get chilly at all.

It is also possible for your children to have half a day in the Jardin des Neiges and then half a day in the creche where they will also be provided with lunch. Perfect should you wish to enjoy a complete day on the slopes knowing that your little treasures are having fun and being carefully looked after.

From 3 ½ years old, children are also accepted into the standard French Ski School (ESF).
