(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.
|Vaujany Ski School / Ski Kindergarten|
|3 and 5 year olds 09:00*– 17:00|
|Ski Kindergarten €245 for 6 mornings and supervised lunches|
|Plus €95 for 6 afternoons in the day-nursery.|
|*Start times may vary high/low season|
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.
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!
