Other Activities

The village is very family friendly. The main centre is traffic free and there are usually activities for children most evenings in the centre of the village or in front of the main chair lift.  The village also hosts various festivals. This year we were there during 2018 when the ‘Motor Trail’ weekend which finished with a fantastic live band playing on the slopes. We also saw the Bastille day fireworks display and party. The tourist office provides details of events each week in the summer and winter.
