Texte d'introduction
IS YOUR CHILD READY TO BELIEVE?
Enter the magical world of club piou-piou where your child can play, have fun, meet new friEnds and learn the process of skiing.
Club Piou-Piou is a kindergarten specially designed for your child's lessons that includes a covered magic carpet and 5 animated characters to help them learn to ski through play. 

Piou-Piou is the talisman of the children's learning process and is used to make each child feel welcome. Using characters to teach the process of skiing, your child will meet and greet Piou-Piou (standing on snow with skis) the white rabbit (sliding to a gentle natural stop), marmot (sliding to a  controlled stop), wolf (turning away from the wolf using snowplough or pizza turns) and teddy bear (sliding down using small turns with a controlled stop), your child will be rewarded for their final finishing level at the end of the week.

Your child will progress at their own pace and discover the pleasures of skiing safely with one of our ESF instructors, who will put them at ease and help build confidence on their skis.

SUMMARY of the Objectives of Club Piou-Piou:
  • Confident with the equipment: get your child to be comfortable on their skis and in their boots and to be able to move freely.
  • Acquire movement and technical skills through the discovery of key characters in the imaginary world of Piou-Piou: e.g: take the carrot to feed the white rabbit - but beware of the wolf!
  • Discovery of the mountain environment and the first notions of security through animations and playful games with the 5 key characters in the history of "Piou-Piou's Adventures". 

Piou-Piou's friends in English and French:
White Rabbit - Blanchot
Marmot - Sifflote
Wolf - Garolou
Teddy Bear - Ourson
A snack break is included during lessons.
