Family Ski Holiday

Family Ski Resort

The ski area of Les Houches in the Chamonix Valley, where Chalet Prarion resides, is one of the Alps best family ski resorts. It also boasts one of the best family friendly ski schools as well as a snow garden, separate nursery slope, and some great blue and red family ski runs.

Stay at Chalet Prarion, and enjoy the luxury of its ski in ski out location and the chance to ski from the door in one of the best family ski resorts you'll probably find in the Alps.

Family Skiing

What really makes the Les Houches ski area special and stand out from many other resorts, is that the ski resort has something for all ages. Beatiful tree lined slopes, great blues and reds, and the Kandahar World Cup run for the adventurous:

Snow Garden

At the base of the Les Houches ski resort, close to the Prarion Gondola that is below the Chalet, you’ll find the snow garden, referred to by the locals as the Jardin de Niege and great for the small family ski members. With a great selection of activities for the 3’s to 5’s beginner in respect of toys and inflatables’ your be amazed at how quickly the young children take to skiing on this gentle incline.

In the middle of the ski session the children have a break for a goutier (snack) and afternoons or mornings you can elect to place your children in the crèche facility where you can also opt for the lunch option so you can maximize time on the slopes.

Beginners Family Ski Area

One of the factors that makes Les Houches such a great family ski resort is that the slopes offer confidence building skiing. At the top of the Prarion Gondola is the Prarion nursery bowl, a gentle series of green slopes that benefits from a magic carpet (travelator) and a dedicated chair lift that is slow moving for all ages to build confidence getting on and off. The chair lift also has an anti-slip bar for very young children for added safety.

As the area is sectioned off this is the perfect place to learn to ski as you won’t be put off by other skiers race by which can be very disconcerting.

Family Friendly Ski Slopes

From the green bowl there are some great blue runs that are gentle and encourage early skiers, young and old to build and ski with confidence. The more experienced skiers will enjoy the Kandahar World Cup run and the blacks that sweep down through the trees.

Combine the great family skiing with some of the most spectacular scenery anywhere in the world and you have one of the best family ski resorts in the Alps.

ESF Ski School – Children Over 5 (& Competent Under 5’s)

A short ski (or you can use our driver service if you prefer) down from your family chalet, you’ll find the ESF Ski School, a very family orientated set up with instructors, experts at tuition for not only young children, but all family ski members, young and old. Teenagers particularly enjoy the ski school as it has some great, and very safe skiing to the sides of the pistes and through the trees that allow them to adventure safely with their intructor.

ESF Ski School - For Parents And Their Friends

We strongly recommend the ESF ski school for all ages and older family ski members raved about the ski school as much as the younger ski members.  Group lessons or private, it’s a great opportunity to see the mountain and pick up some useful tips.
