Valmorel is definitely a family resort with a laid-back atmosphere, pedestrianised centre and a great ski area to enjoy together.

The youngest children, from age 18 months, can join the Piou Piou Nursery (+33 (0)4 79 09 81 86) in the resort centre, which has a good reputation. From three years old children here can have their first ski lessons, if they want them, in the snow garden.

Children aged six and up can join the ski school which again is highly regarded and offers lessons following the standard French national testing regime according to the age and stage of the child.
