We prioritise accessibility and safety

To allow you to learn and progress in complete safety, we have set up 4 areas for beginners in the districts of La Croisette, Preyerand, Les Bruyères and Grand Reberty, with conveyor belts leading to the easier slopes.

In the centre of the La Croisette district you can find the Boukty Snow Camp play area, for young children (accompanied by their parents) to discover the joys of snow and sledding in a fun environment where they can practice going down a toboggan run, play hide and seek in an igloo or even have a snowball fight.

Our five chair lifts (Menuires, Doron, Reberty, Tortollet and Bettex) are equipped with a guardrail safety system to ensure that the ski lifts are safe for use by children. This ingenious system does not require any special equipment in order to be used by children. We have installed ramps and removed stairs in order to allow children to easily access the cable cars (Roc 1, Bruyères 1, Preyerand, Saint Martin 1).

Fun for all the family

On the slopes and in the resort there are many activities on offer to allow parents and children to enjoy themselves as a family.

La Croisette Sports Centre is a real paradise for children, with a Fun Park and 500m2 of recreational spaces and discovery play areas. It has a pool which offers swimming lessons for babies and fun aqua aerobics classes for children. The water park and wellness space at Les Bruyères has a recreational balneo-pool with water jets and an enormous paddling pool exclusively for children.

From the Boukty Snow Camp for children to Roc'n Bob (snow sledding activity) and Speed Mountain (an alpine coaster) for adults, the various toboggan runs on the resort will allow you to discover the pleasures of sledding no matter how old your children are. Non-skiing activities are offered to share thrills and excitement with older children: Fat biking on the snow, Easy Trott (activity with electric scooters on snow), Roc'n Trott (descend the slopes by scooter). Take on challenges with your family in one of the many recreational areas such as: the Friendly Natural Park, the Pixel Area, the Mini KL (speed ski slope) or even the Liberty Ride (freeride ski slope).

Take on challenges as a family at Crazy After Ski, our fun weekly après-ski!
