Texte d'introduction

YOUR CHILD WILL ENTER THE WORLD OF PIOU PIOU AND LEARN WITH A SMILE ON THEIR FACE!

SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN FROM 4 YEARS OLD

For your little 4 year olds

At ESF Arc 1800 we pride ourselves on our Club Piou Piou area and kindergarten slopes. Everything is available for your child to learn to ski and have fun at the same time. We have an experienced team of ESF professionals that have trained for many years to earn the privilege to teach your children.

With a mix of both young and experienced instructors our team ensure the atmosphere is a pleasing and rewarding one for both parents and children alike. Your children will first discover the feel of real mountain snow under their feet and play games with different character friends of Piou Piou himself. Incidentally, Piou Piou is the talisman icon of the learning process of ESF and is a rather large yellow chick. Piou Piou gets his/her name from the sound a small chick makes when pecking at food. Apparently!

Groups sizes are small in Piou Piou and our teaching process is tailored and directed towards the discovery of snow and the pleasures that come from skiing down the slopes. When the children are not learning to ski we encourage them to play during snack breaks and sometimes take walks into the forest, play educational games and join in fun activities.

  • Registration levels for 4 year olds:
  • Beginners who have never skied. 
  • Club Piou Piou for children who have already spent a week or more at the Piou Piou club.
Ski Pass is FREE for children up to 5 years old.
