Courchevel and La Tania with children

Fun on the slopes
Courchevel 1650 and La Tania are both relatively quiet resorts with lots of gentle green and blue pistes which are perfect for children. Both resorts have designated beginner areas with ‘magic carpet’ lifts; ideal for children to learn to ski in a protected, safe environment.

Courchevel 1650 also has the fun, themed Western Park where kids can learn about West-Indians by dressing up and singing songs in a tipi. There’s fun for all the family in Courchevel 1850 with the Family Park with jumps, a ski cross and big air bag. There’s also an Adventure Camp at the Altiport with lots of activities including snow-mobiling!

There is a small, child-friendly sledging area at the top of the Tovets chair lift in Courchevel 1850. For older children and teens there is the exciting ‘Moriond Racing’ luge track in Courchevel 1650. The 3km track has steep slopes, twists and turns through trees and tunnels.

Fun off the slopes
Courchevel is home to Europe’s largest mountain aqua-fun centre, Aquamotion. With indoor and outdoor swimming pools, kids play area and baby pool, fun slides, diving boards and a surf pool… enough to keep the kids entertained for hours!

Val d'Isere with children

Fun on the snow
Val d’Isere has two nursery ski areas with one in the resort centre and one in La Daille. The main nursery ski area for kids is at the bottom of the Solaise lift in the village. Here there are three free lifts giving access to green pistes, perfect for beginners. There is also a beginner area at the top of the Solaise lift with gentle green runs to enjoy higher up the mountain.
There is an exciting adventure programme, ‘Val Kids’ for younger ones to find out about the ski area through play. It is split into different zones on Solaise and Bellevarde with a playground, fun piste with games, toboggan run and mini ski cross. There is a designated area for luging, located next to the nursery slope on the left-hand side of the Savonette lift, the perfect place to take your kids sledging.
Fun off the slopes
For fun splashing around, visit the Aquasportif Centre in the village with an indoor swimming pool, river currents and water cannons. There is also an indoor climbing wall at the Aquasportif Centre which is a great activity for the whole family.
For a more unique Alpine experience, visit the farm at Ferme de l’Androit situated in the Manchet Valley, accessible by bus. There are cows, horses, pigs and more. You can visit in the evening at milking time for the cows and buy some of the local produce to try!
Val d’Isere also has an outdoor ice skating rink in the village opening late afternoon and into the evening. What happened to good old-fashioned snow-ball fights and snow-man building we wonder…
