Skiing with Children
Taking children skiing for the first time isn’t easy, but get it right and you’ll hopefully have a brood of enthusiastic ski buddies to share your passion with . . . at least until they can out-ski you that is!
Skiing With Younger Children
If you are travelling with young children Ice and Fire can provide a cot, high-chair and changing mat to help you cut down on the packing. We provide cot sheets and towels but recommend you bring your own baby sleeping bag. We have children’s crockery and cutlery in the chalet. There is a microwave in the kitchen for heating bottles – please bring your own steriliser if you use one.
If you are travelling with very young children, please let us know at the time of booking to ensure that we can reserve the most suitable rooms and advise on any other requirements.
Skiing With Older Children
All of our chalets have separate games areas where kids will find a selection of books and games.
In the evening, we offer an earlier kids tea on request.
Les Coches is great for families. It has an ice rink, sledging area, regular children’s entertainment and two excellent nursery slopes for learning to ski with excellent ski school options.
There is a lovely swimming pool in nearby Montchavin, and several child friendly restaurants for eating out.
We recommend a company called My Mountain Nanny. They provide flexible chalet-based childcare.
You can choose to book hourly, daily or weekly, either for full or half days. They can also offer evening babysitting on request.
They do fun activities with the little ones such as picnics, snowman-building, sledging, trips to the park, treasure hunts, painting and drawing, hide and seek, making play dough, camps and dens and adventure walks in the snow.
Every child has different needs and requirements so we recommend that you contact My Mountain Nanny directly.
