Where to ski with very young children?

Most ski resorts have facilities for little ones - whether that means lessons on offer, easy runs, snow parks or simply good babysitting services. But that doesn’t mean that they’re all created equal when it comes to taking your children on a skiing holiday.

In particular, if you have very young children, amenities that allow them to get out in the snow are less common. St Martin de Belleville offers a perfect compromise - with fantastic facilities for small children, it’s also close to the incredible choice of skiing option in the Three Valleys area.


In recent years, the town has landscaped a new, gently sloping ski area for complete beginners, suitable for young children. It has also added a magic carpet ski lift to the area - operating along similar lines to a conveyor belt, it’s simple and safe for children to use.


Of course, in addition to this you’ll also find the usual ski schools, daycare options and babysitters that allow parents some time to themselves on a ski trip.


It’s not just the ski facilities that make St Martin de Belleville such a great choice for a family ski holiday with small children, though. It’s one of the smallest resorts in the Three Valleys area, and has a unique traditional charm.


This low-key and relaxed vibe makes it the perfect family-friendly destination, with a less buzzing apres-ski scene than some nearby resorts.


Of course, if the weather turns and you need some indoor activities, you’re also just down the road from the larger areas of Meribel and Val d’Isere. Meribel even boasts a cinema, with extra screenings in bad weather!


The younger your children start skiing, the more comfortable they’ll be on the slopes - and the more comfortable they are, the more fun family ski trips you can take!
