Family Ski Holidays

With its fantastic and incredibly cheap Vaujany creche, a first class indoor pool, its own dedicated ski school, indoor ice rink, bowling complex, safe streets, village feel and never far to a lift, it’s easy to see why Vaujany is winner of both the coveted Famille Plus Label and Best Small Resort (Cadogan 2008).


Ski Peak has always ensured that families are well cared for… After all it’s not just the kids that are on holiday which they like to believe! A rep is always on hand to help you, whether it be with ski hire, finding your ski class or a lift to the leisure centres in the minibus.


Limited places so please book in advance and bring your child’s red book and injection history!

The local village nursery has established an excellent reputation and is exceptionally good value. As a result Vaujany child care is second to none and have recently invested in a brand new facility. The crèche with its well-equipped playrooms are full of toys and games to keep even the busiest of little ones entertained. There’s also sledging slope out front, a ball-park, TV room and a dormitory for napping when required.

The staff speak reasonable English and the day-nursery is conveniently situated close to the main lift-station in Vaujany accessible via funicular.

It's quite unbelievable the amenities that this facility has considering the size of Vaujany. Nathalie was very helpful and I felt extremely reassured.

Ski Kindergarten (skiing in the morning and afternoon child care)

There are tailor-made packages of activities provided by Vaujany’s small, friendly ski school (Vaujany ESF). In the morning, children can find their ski legs at the ski kindergarten and after a supervised lunch spend the afternoon having more fun in the Garderie day nursery. Available for children from the ages of 3-11 year old.

Ski school starts at 9.15am when instructors meet children at the main lift station in Vaujany and accompany them up to the ski kindergarten at Montfrais. After a lunch stop at the mountain restaurant near the kindergarten, all 4 year olds and any 5 year old beginners are accompanied back to the day nursery for an afternoon of games and activities until 5.00pm.

Ski lesson information

New to Skiing?

For those who are new to skiing, the Jardin de Neige (ski kindergarten) at Montfrais near to the top of the gondola has a special nursery ski lift and some model animals. Children are gently introduced to snow by simply walking on their skis, tobogganing or skiing down the short nursery slope.

Ski School

All children over 6 and any 5 year olds who have skied before can do both morning and afternoon ski school sessions. Instructors meet children at the main lift station at 9.15am and take them to the slopes.

At midday, there’s a well-earned lunch break at the Montfrais mountain restaurant with time out for playing in the snow or in the playroom if conditions are poor. Parents can choose to rendezvous with their children at Montfrais at 4.15pm to see the day’s progress first hand and do a few gentle runs en famille, or to collect them from their instructors at the main lift station between 4.30 & 4.45pm.

6 years and older 9.15am*-4.30pm
