Reason #2: Fun kids activities outside of skiing

The children will not be bored for a moment in Les Portes du Soleil during a fun ski tour with the family or while practising skiing in class. But there is nothing better than to alternate skiing with other fun activities! A visit to the local cheese maker is highly recommended for example. Let the children get acquainted with the cheese farm, so they can see how the cows are milked and how the Abondance cheese is made! Other fun activities are the Fantasticable in Châtel, tobogganing, the indoor playground C L'Aventure or indoor swimming in Châtel.
