Texte d'introduction & contenu

With ESF Alpe D'Huez your children will fall in love with our magical Children's Chalet


From the age of 2 and a half your child can take their first real steps on snow in the surroundings of our wonderful Children's Chalet in the Les Bergers area.

Our team of specially trained ESF instructors are fully equipped to ensure your child learns from the basics and enjoy their time while playing in the Children's Chalet area. By developing the confidence level of all children we quickly ensure they adapt to mountain conditions and start having fun.

For all chlidren under 5 years old from beginner to Garolou

What's on offer for your little skiers?
The first process is to get your child used to the snow and how they react when standing in snow for the first time. At ESF we have an extremely proven way to allow this to happen naturally. This involves our characters of Piou Piou and friends. These are fantasy created characters that all have a different level of learning to ensure a playful, safe and specialised fun teaching occurs. 

Each child has an initiation at the beginning to identify their current level and then your little skiers get to meet Piou Piou and his friends. They will discover the environment of the mountain, play games in the snow and take those first slides on their skis!

All this takes place in safety and in a secured area. At the end of the week there is a medal ceremony to congratulate them on their progress and efforts (Piou Piou, Blanchot, Sifflote, Garolou).
