Chalet Perdu is your home for the perfect family skiing holiday. You will find it warm and comforting, with lots of furry throws to nuzzle up in while watching an après ski film and lots of toboggans for outdoor snow play. A toy cupboard is full of surprises, colouring books, traditional board games a Wii and apple Tv. You can help the chef decorate cakes or roast marshmallows in the après ski cabin. We have a snowman to build every week and lots of snowballs to throw.

The ski day

Breakfast is casual, so jammies are normal, you will love our pancakes and you can have them as many days as you want. When it’s time for skiing pull on your ski clothes and walk just 100m to the ski hire shop where you will greet the friendly ski helpers who will give you your skis, boots and a helmet.  Ensure your ski pass is safely stored in your jacket and walk across to the ski school. Each ski school and class have a special number and flag to meet at. You might be having private lessons, or you might be in a group lesson and it’s important that Mum and Dad know where you will be picked up from and at what time. If you are having lessons at 9 you need to be up early.

At lunchtime all mountain and village restaurants offer a little children’s menu. It’s a time to rest, get warmed up and enjoy. In the busy school holiday weeks at New Year and in February maybe book a table indoors. At Chalet Perdu we offer a ski to dine route planner and restaurant booking service. It’s also easy to ski back to Chalet Perdu during the day, maybe someone is too tired and cold and wants to play in the chalet.

Children learn to ski in Les Gets from 2.5 years old in a unique program of ski and play. Lunch is provided. Please ask us for advice on the different learn to ski options for very young children. Group and private lessons are available throughout the day for children and teenagers.

Babies at Chalet Perdu do not miss out in the ski fun. Little fur lined toboggans or buggies are available to hire making it easy to use the tele cabin to go up to the ski slopes. You will find lots of mums and dads, grandparents, nannies, babies and toddlers meeting up for morning coffee at La Croix Blanche, a restaurant overlooking the children’s ski area

The Grand Cry is a dedicated children’s ski mountain, where children can ski safely and freely away from adult’s, skiers and boarders. Themed with wigwams and totem poles and ski helpers dressed as Red Indians, children can ski in a world of their own, safely. We also have a children’s indoor activity centre, where your little ones can learn to write you’re their name in Apache language, they can feed the goats and donkeys.

Le Petit Train is a tiny locomotive with carriages, this runs around Les Gets and is most importantly free.

Xmas at Chalet Perdu Pere de Noel, Santa Claus comes to Les Gets every Xmas, He is at his cabin with his elves in the snowy woods just behind Chalet Perdu, but Santa prefers you to arrive in his magical Xmas bus. There is a Santa bus stop located at the ice rink. You can book your visit to Santa at the tourist office, this is a magical Xmas skiing experience. Of course, Santa always comes to Chalet Perdu on Christmas Eve, stockings are hung on the fireplace and Santa flies on the roof of the Chalet when everyone is sleeping. Thank goodness we have a big chimney so he won’t get stuck!
