Best Family Ski Resorts

Skiing for a long weekend

Courchevel 1650

Courchevel 1650 is a great option for families who want to enjoy the amazing terrain of Courchevel, but at an affordable price point. 1650 has long been a family favourite for many Brits and there is good reason for that.

Gentle Ski Runs – Firstly, there are a number of easy runs close to the village. There is also a separate beginners area at the top of the Ariondaz bubble that has two magic carpets, and keeps first timers separate from fast skiers whizzing by. There’s also a fun teepee at the top that you can visit, shoot some bows & arrows, play some instruments or get your face painted. The area also gets a lot of sun and has a number of wide, gentle slopes – ideal for beginners and intermediates.

Ultimate Luge Run – The resort also boasts a massive luge run down from the top of the gondola to the base of resort. For 10€ a go, you can race your each other down this winding slope, through tunnels and all. We definitely recommend a helmet for this adventure though!

Aquamotion for Non-Skiers – If you have non-skiers in your family or would just prefer a day to rest your ski legs, the swimming and spa facility Aquamotion is just around the corner. This state of the art centre boasts a few different waterslides, a surfing pool, aquafitness classes, a spa, climbing wall, restaurant and more.

Family-Friendly Food – La Boulotte is a great lunch or supper option. Yummy, casual eats at a reasonable price – and you just might have some entertainment from the woman in the kitchen ;-).

Epic skiing in the 3 Valleys

La Tania

La Tania is a good-value, family-friendly base to head out and explore the slopes of its nearby resorts, Courchevel and Méribel. It is a traffic-free mountain village which is easily accessible no matter where you are staying in resort.

Skiing for Everyone – The magic carpet and nursery slope for small skiers are right in the center of town. After they improve a bit you can take the winding green run down from the gondola and for those a bit more advanced, the blue run Folyeres into La Tania is brilliant. For the advanced skiers in your family, there are some great tree runs and off-piste skiing area near Duo des Launches as well as a few black and red runs.

Kids Events – The tourist office often puts on evening activities for kids that may include some chocolate chaud! But you can always grab a bum board and slide down the piste after the skiers have gone or have a play on the playground in town. With a local creche right near the gondola station, it is convenient even to bring tiny tots with you and still get some time out skiing.

Casual Eats – The majority of the restaurants in La Tania offer casual dining settings and early seatings from 6:30pm. Pub Le Ski Lodge, La Taiga, Marmattons and La Ferme are all good options with kids menus as well.
