Snow Activities



n a peaceful and protected area featuring specific equipment,
everything is organized so that children aged 3 to 5 can discover the fun of learning to ski via games and activities.
The PIOU PIOU Club is open from Sunday to Friday.



My objectives during the OURSON (beginners) course:  

  • To recognize the different parts of my skiing equipment.
  • To learn how to put on and take off my skis by myself.
  • To use the ski lifts.
  • To control my speed and learn how to do snaking turns.
  • To be able to move around in different ways on my skis over varied terrain that is almost flat.
  • To ski with parallel skis downhill and to stop with a snowplough turn.
  • Even if I don’t meet all of my objectives, I will still be awarded the PIOU PIOU badge for my efforts.

The PIOU PIOU and OURSON tests, which are the first level ESF ability tests, take place every Friday and are handled by the PIOU PIOU Club .
