famille plus small

Family Ski Holidays

With its amazing and very reasonably priced crèche, a first class indoor swimming 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 has won both the coveted Famille Plus Label and Best Small Resort in the past.


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 staff member is available to help you, whether it be with ski hire, finding your ski class or a lift to the leisure centre 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. To underline the village's commitment to family life Vaujany recently invested in a brand new crèche with facilities that are second to none. The new crèche has well-equipped playrooms, full of toys and games, to keep even the busiest of little ones entertained. There’s also a sledging slope out front, a ball-park, TV room. 

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

6 months to 5 years old inclusive
9.00am - 5.00pm (half day on 1st day)
€135.00 for 5 days (lunch included)

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). From 3 years to 5 years inclusive children can join the local, friendly, Vaujany ESF ski school, starting in the ski kindergarten and progressing to the other nursery slopes as appropriate. 

Ski school meets at 09:15 at the main lift station in Vaujany from where the instructors accompany them up to the ski kindergarten and nursery slopes at Montfrais. A supervised lunch is provided in one of the mountain restaurants (the Vaujaniate) after which the younger children are accompanied down to the village creche for the afternoon whilst the older children join their afternoon ski classes.

Ski lesson information

New to Skiing?

From 3 years old, 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, walking on their skis, tobogganing and skiing down the short nursery slope.

Ski School

Children over 6 and any 5 year olds who have skied before can take both morning and afternoon ski school sessions. At midday, there’s a supervised lunch break, with time out for playing in the snow or in the playroom if weather conditions dictate. 

Parents can choose to rendezvous with their children at Montfrais before their lunch, after their lunch or at the end of the day. So parents have complete flexibility and can take the opportunity to ski far and wide should they choose to without having to return at midday! If at the end of the day parents wish to pick their children up at 16:15 from the nursery slopes at Montfrais they can then finish the skiing day, en famille, enjoying a few gentle runs together. Alternatively you can collect the children from their instructors at the main lift station between 16:30 & 16:45, the same place where you dropped them off!

Full Day Ski School
6 years and older 9.15am*-4.30pm
Full day ski school €295 for 5 days Monday to Friday (inc. supervised lunch)
*Start times may vary high/low season
