The Ski 2 Penguin Club 2018 / 2019
Our Penguin Club offers a fun and friendly place where your little ones will have fun in the snow, get creative with arts and crafts then have a kip when the excitement gets too much. It’s an easy walk from most of our accommodation, but if you’re staying a little further away then we offer a minibus pick up and drop off service so that little legs (and yours!) don’t get too tired.
Penguin Club with Skiing
We think it’s never too early to learn to ski. Our Penguin Club ‘seniors’ (children aged 3 or older) get all the benefits of the Penguin Club, but with the added opportunity to try out the mini nursery slope at Crest (2,000 metres) for an hour each day with one of our qualified British instructors. With its own travellator it makes for the perfect learning environment so that when you come back next year your children will be raring to go in our ski school. One of our team will escort the youngster from the Penguin Club up to the slopes with the appropriate equipment and then back to Penguin Club after the lesson. For your child’s safety we do reserve the right to decide if they are ready to learn to ski and if we think they’re not quite there then we’ll refund you the difference in price and they can have fun in the Penguin Club.
Kids Ski School
Our British Ski School takes children from ages 4+ years and runs every week of the ski season. With qualified British ski instructors your children will have a fun and hassle-free experience where they can ‘improve on the move’. Our Ski School attracts rave reviews from our customers and is one of the reasons why our family ski holidays are so popular. If you’re ready to know more, head over to our Ski School page for information on the days and times, prices and equipment.
Adventure Ski Courses
We run our Adventure Ski Courses on selected weeks, aimed at teenagers with over 8 weeks of skiing experience. If you’re looking for an opportunity to develop your youngster’s skiing ability and experience (both on and off-piste), then these courses are not to be missed. Take a look at our Ski School information for further details and cost.
Babysitting can be arranged in the evenings for parents wishing to explore Champoluc or have a little time to themselves. You can arrange this locally with our nursery staff at a cost of approximately €15 per hour, paid directly in cash to the babysitter.
Car / booster seats
We are pleased to provide the car / booster seats for our younger guests on all of our airport transfers.
