A Family Travel Destination
LES CARROZ, THE CHILDREN'S SKI RESORT!
Well, Les Carroz is THE family ski resort par excellence!
A great family ski holiday is made up of a recipe with several ingredients: a resort-village atmosphere where you will find refuge in cosy chalets or apartments; an XXL ski area which offers all kinds of skiing possibilities, particularly for your beginner-level children; activities other than skiing thanks to which you can add excitement your stay according to your wishes; arrangements offered to help you organise your week…
Les Carroz’s recipe for family ski holidays fulfils all these essential criteria, so the mountain remains a lasting pleasure to share with your loved ones. The resort is looking forward to welcoming your tribe and helping them enjoy an exceptional week. Because, of course, knowing that you’re happy in return is the cherry on the cake. Before you arrive, we’d like to give you some practical information…
1. A FAMILY ATMOSPHERE
In this respect, the resort village of Les Carroz rolls out the red carpet for families. Throughout your ski holiday, you will appreciate the human-scale village spirit of Les Carroz and its architecture of cosy chalets… It’s an ideal setting for family get-togethers, discovering snow holidays, and, above all, learning how to ski.
Here, we share the real-life experience of a pioneering winter sports resort that reveals all its character – nature, sports and, above all, family-friendliness…
In a nutshell, the life of a mountain village perched at 1200m, where you and your family will find refuge in charming cocoons.
2. THE FIRST BENDS OF YOUR SKI HOLIDAY
THE SNOW GARDEN
The Les Carroz snow garden is dedicated to teaching young ones (aged 3 and over) how to ski. Its advantages? Exposure to the sun, two covered treadmills, fun (and new) modules and a spot at the foot of the cable car are appreciated by parents, skiers and non-skiers alike.
The Figaro zone is a completely free beginner zone. Between the cable car and the village, it’s easily accessible all day long! Figaro has a covered carpet, where parents love to take their little beginners to start practising their first bends on the green “Figaro” slope of the same name.
COIN COIN SLOPE
At the arrival of the cable car lined with fir trees, the green slope for young skiers is equipped with a covered carpet and a gentle ski lift. The bonus? A view of the Aravis massif and easy access for parents returning from skiing (pedestrian cable car access for non-skiing parents).
PLEIN SOLEIL SLOPE
The “plein soleil” blue slope is the instructors’ favourite area for gently teaching children the joys of skiing and snowboarding and continuing to improve. As the name suggests, it’s all about learning to ski in the sunshine.
3. SKIING AND HAVING FUN IN THE PLAY ZONES
The Cool Zone at the Oasis
It’s a 100% pure gliding area for children. Head for the Cool Zone at the Oasis, an unmissable place where the palm trees are immaculately white. On the programme: the first small jumps and sensations on a boardercross, also in a family version (blue level). And don’t forget to relax on the deckchairs and footstools in this play area.
The boardercross area in the Cool Zone (blue level) offers the whole family and young skiers the chance to try out banked curves, jumps, “whoops”, and “bump ball”.
With the whole descent being filmed, now’s the time to challenge the whole family! Kids love elbowing mum and dad!
Once well-trained on this fun course, it’s time to head for the Gron boardercross (red level).
Located in the Gron valley – 4 starts and 8 bends for a descent lasting over a minute.
A chairlift selfie
During your ski holiday, there are some photos you just can’t take on your own!
