Les Menuires, a supportive resort!

For years, Les Menuires has been supporting various charitable organisations. While skiing is central to the resort, altruism is in our DNA, and at the heart of our values of kindness, commitment, sincerity, sharing and loyalty. Shall we introduce our organisations to you?


Created in 1965, the Association Départementale des Infirmes Moteurs Cérébraux de Haute-Savoie (ADIMC 74) is an association of parents. It represents and supports people with disabilities, along with their families.

ADIMC 74 provides concrete solutions in their establishments, in varied areas such as education, healthcare, work and housing. ADIMC 74 supports 350 people and 450 professionals are involved.

For 25 years, along with ADIMC, Les Menuires has been organising the Trophée de l’Espoir, an event that is sponsored by the double Olympic judo champion David Douillet. The goal is to raise funds to help the organisation. A group of disabled people and their carers spend a day discovering the joys of skiing through handiski. The evening is both festive and supportive. On the programme: a sale of soft animals, a torchlight descent with the ESF, light shows, an exceptional show and fireworks.

We are proud and happy to have helped ADIMC to finance the purchase of a HANSA boat suitable for disabled people.

Action Enfance

Since 1958, Action Enfance has been offering children who are separated from their parents by decision of the Juvenile Court the opportunity to live in a village. Siblings are not separated as may be the case in foster care. In Action Enfance villages, each child lives in a house with educators who work in shifts. They provide a stable, educational and protective environment, in order to help the children grow up and integrate better into society.

For several years, Les Menuires has enabled young people from different villages to come to the mountains in summer or winter on holiday, thanks to partnerships with SEVABEL (ski lift company), estate agencies, SOGEVAB, etc. The aim is to offer them an unforgettable and magical holiday in the mountains.

In December 2021, the resort welcomed 46 children and 24 accompanying adults from the Village d’Enfants et d’Adolescents de Cesson for two days. They were able to discover the mountains, try skiing and take their first lesson.

A selection of testimonies: “I liked it because when I skied, I fell and went down the slope on my back… I didn’t like it when we had to leave because I wanted to stay”, said Kiara, 8 years old. "It was so good... I liked falling in the snow. It was all soft. It was like a magic carpet” added Stella, 12 years old.

Association Petits Princes

Created in 1987, the Association Petits Princes works with seriously-ill children aged 3 to 18, making their dreams come true. By pursuing their passion and realising their dreams, children often find new energy to fight their illness. The organisation supports children throughout their illness and provides vital assistance to the whole family.

Since its creation, the Association Petits Princes has made 8,500 dreams come true. Each day, the dream of a seriously ill child is fulfilled.

Since 2018, Les Menuires has been collecting money for this organisation, especially through sales of soft animals and other souvenirs during different events such as the Thursday Night Show. Our resort thus participates in operation “Famille Plus, la montagne solidaire” (Family Plus, a mountain of support).

In 2022, a card game, 7 families (Happy Families), was created in partnership with SEVABEL. It is sold at events, at the Tourist Office and at the Croisette ski lift ticket office. The proceeds are donated to the Association Petits Princes.
