SNOWGARDEN

Our two snow gardens on the Grimentz and Zinal slopes are located right in the heart of the mountains, so that your children can discover their first gliding sensations in a safe area close to all amenities.

As the main actor/actress in their development, your children will experience their first accommodation in the snow with skis, surrounded by other children, in a setting where each child can develop confidently and at their own pace.

Our aim is to offer a welcome that is adapted to your child's needs.
Activities and learning on the snow are punctuated by breaks, so that children remain in the pleasure of play and discovery. A conveyor belt, fun and educational modules accompany your child's introduction to skiing.

Registration at Le Jardin des Neiges is available in the form of a daily, weekly or weekend pass.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

Bendolla lies at an altitude of 2133 m. and Sorebois at over 2440 m.

We encourage you to make a success of this first experience by preparing your children so that they can adapt to outdoor situations and take full advantage of the mountains and snow.

A winter sports outfit with warm, waterproof clothing and adequate sun protection will ensure that your child can evolve in the best possible conditions.

And to start learning, ski boots and gloves need to be dry and the right size.

We invite you to read the document below to help prepare your children to adapt to outdoor situations and make the most of this new experience.
