Accompanied by our instructors, your child experiences their first emotions in the mountains thanks to the piou piou club in a dedicated space. ESF instructors use the game to help your child get his bearings and make his first slides!

For several years, the ESF Guzet has had a kindergarten in order to allow the youngest of its students to evolve in an adapted, closed and secure space, dedicated to the first evolutions in skiing ( from 3 years). Located on the Prat-Mataou belvedere which benefits from maximum sunshine, it is designed to facilitate the discovery of the first sensations of sliding and the acquisition of the basic gestures which will very quickly allow an evolution in autonomy on the easiest slopes. from the resort.
This is the starting point for an initiation phase which will provide children with the basics necessary for skiing.
This area has its own ski lifts: a treadmill protected by a tunnel (30 m long) and a rope (50 m long).
Following night-time grooming, the configuration of the terrain is prepared each morning: bumps, installation of the various equipment, configuration of the training areas, etc.

The various equipment allows the activity of the children; these activities are designed according to their young age and the educational objective which consists in acquiring the triptych: balance, source of braking and change of direction.

The major objectives are threefold: Initiation to autonomy (children must be able to move freely in complete safety, from one workshop to another), gradual acquisition of motor skills and discovery of the mountain environment and the first notions of security.

Additional Information :
EQUIPMENT: - own equipment (skis and boots), - a helmet (highly recommended), - sunglasses or preferably a mask, - a packet of tissues - a small snack for the break during the lesson. - Insurance, equipment and ski pass are not included in the services.
