We operate a minibus service in the morning to the ESF Ski School for beginners unable to use the lift from Le Bettaix for guests who book their lessons through us.

 

Group lessons are provided at all levels with English speaking instructors. The school employs 200 instructors and provides an array of services for both adults and particularly the children.

Special Young Children Classes

Sunday Start – Children aged 3 (skiing)

 

The special classes for very young children, situated in La Croisette, are designed to introduce 3 year olds to skiing combining this with play.  Children will combine ski lessons for part of the duration and supervised play for the other part with the possibility of a nap, snow shoe walking in the Croisette area, sledging and inside games.

 

Children are taught by fully qualified instructors in a protected area featuring special equipment including magic carpets, mini-ski tows, a rope tow, and play structures to encourage learning.  It is possible to also add additional lunchtime care and a meal and the “miniclub” day care nursery if you would like a combined package for your child to cover the full day.

 PRIVATE INSTRUCTORS

Ski School in conjunction with ESF

Private instructors are available to provide a whole range of services from taking a private instructor to yourself for an hour, to engaging the services of an instructor for the whole week to work on a dedicated basis with your group. 

 

This gives the maximum flexibility to exploit the instructor perhaps by using him or her for adults in the morning and kids in the afternoon, or for beginners for 2 hours and experts for the remainder of the day!

 

The instructors we use are from the “Ski School” division of ESF who all speak fluent English and are more accustomed to working with English guests.  They are based in the Bruyeres office of ESF but are also available to meet guests in Bettaix at the Croisette meeting point.

Esf Piou Piou Club – Non-Skiing Childcare

There are two nursery locations – one in La Croisette (in the centre of Les Menuires – accessible by the ski bus or with our minibus service by arrangement at the time of booking) and one in Les Bruyeres (next door to our chalets).  Children can be cared for from the age of 3 months up to 5 years – but note the younger ones under 18 months can only be accepted at the nursery in La Croisette

 

The nursery has English speaking carers including nursery nurses and qualified child minders and can take a maximum of 28 children in this age group.  Places are therefore limited and early booking is essential.  Childcare can be booked for morning or afternoon sessions and lunchtime supervision and a meal can also be added if required to ensure seamless childcare for the whole day. 

 

NURSERY

Non-skiing nursery for children aged from 3 months to 30 months at La Croisette and from 18 to 30 months at Bruyeres.

 

The facility includes secure play areas, eating areas and 3 sleeping areas with cots for the younger ones.  Children are allocated their cot at the beginning of the week and it is kept just for them for the duration of their stay. 

 

Children under 20 months old must have a declaration from their GP at home, stating that they have received all the normal vaccinations (which may vary by country of residence) and that they are fit to be cared for in a group environment with other children at an altitude above 1800m.

 

MINI CLUB

Childrens daycare club at both La Croisette and Bruyeres for children aged 30 months to 3 years old (non-skiing).

 

Young children can discover snow without skiing through games both inside and outside, including snowballs, raquettes (snow shoe walking) and sledging and they will also take the telecabine on foot (gondola lift) to experience the mountain. The Mini Club facilities include secure indoor and outdoor playing areas, a dining room and fully equipped kitchen plus several quiet sleeping areas.
