The 3-6 years old are welcomed in the Piou-Piou Club by ski instructors of the French Ski School (ESF). In a large secure playground bordering La Petite Ourse, they make their first glides on well-groomed and equipped slopes (decorated with figures, magic carpet, mini-ski lift and snow cannon) and discover the joys of snow.

ESF proposes the option to take charge of your children directly from your accommodation.












Opoual loves children! He is the nice “not all abominable” Yeti and mascot of the Labellemontagne resorts.



Opoual loves children! He is the nice “not all abominable” Yeti and mascot of the Labellemontagne resorts. Opoual offers all children between ages 6 and 11 years his “handbook” in which they will follow, while playing, his adventures and those of his beautiful mountains. He will have them discover the mysteries of the mountain and the various resort professions. Opoual gives them some pointers as to how to behave on the slopes and in nature.
Thanks to Opoual’s handbook the children could possibly win their families’ next trip to the snow, while participating in the new game-contest “Adopt the Opoual Attitude”! Plenty to put their parents in a real good mood!



So fine, Opoual’s Snack Time

OPOUAL likes to eat, and share…so he invites the children to his Snack Time, every Thursday during French school holidays. On the program: Meet with OPOUAL, pictures with OPOUAL, music show.

On top of his fine Snack Time Show, OPOUAL does not stand idle with his paws in his fur! Children will have the chance to shake his paw in various places of Orcières 1850: on the slopes or elsewhere…

With all that, kids will have a great holiday—Opoual’s promise !

Opoual has his own kingdom on the Web !Find it fast!
