Where children are treated like royalty
Most properties offer a Kids Club: obviously, you want to spend time with your children, but there are also times when you might like to enjoy a spot of shopping on your own, or some time relaxing at the Spa… That’s when the kids’ clubs come into their own, with qualified activity coordinators who’ll look after your little ones.
Play areas, arcade games… everything has been designed to delight young children and teenagers, who’ll enjoy a bit of time away from their parents to make new friendships.
Have you heard of the Family Pass?
It’s THE essential skipass for families staying in Les 3 Vallées! It’s perfect for families of 4 to 9 people, comprising at least 2 children (maximum of 7) aged between 5 and 17 years, and 2 adults.
The Family Pass is valid for 6 to 21-days and it couldn’t be simpler: everybody, even the adults, pays the child rate for their skipass! That means 300€ / person instead of 375€ for a 6-day skipass from the 23rd of December 2023.
On the slopes of the world’s largest ski area, which comprises 50% easy and 50% expert ski runs, you’ll find a multitude of fun and beginners’ areas, to meet all your family’s needs, and cater to everybody’s skiing ability.
Ski lessons and ski kindergartens
So that your children learn to ski in the best possible conditions, there’s nothing better than entrusting them to one of Les 3 Vallées’ ESF French Ski Schools. They offer group ski and snowboard lessons where they can learn with others and make new friends.
There are also the Piou-Piou ski kindergartens, which are perfectly adapted to young children discovering the joys of snow and snowsports in safe, supervised sites. Not forgetting the beginners’ package including lessons and a skipass.
It’s the best way to help your children progress: they’ll soon be able to follow you, and you’ll all be able to ski together as a family on the slopes of the world’s largest ski area… How about that!
