➕ Our advantages : our lessons are limited to a maximum of 8 children! This guarantees a more effective and personalized lesson.
The location: these courses will take place at the Panda Club * in Argentière at the foot of the Plan Joran ski lift.
This is a Club that hosts all of our children's courses that we offer at Evolution 2 Chamonix. In Argentière, in the heart of the forest, the Panda Club has its own ski slopes and private ski lifts. There is also a large garden equipped for the youngest levels as well as a chalet that welcomes children for lunch or the indoor activities of our Winter Games
Lunch: when your child is old enough to no longer need an afternoon nap it is possible to have lunch on site for morning or full day courses during the school holidays. Note: we are not equipped for nap time. Please consult details at the bottom of the page.
Number of participants: 4 to 8 children maximum per instructor. If the minimum of 4 children is not reached, the lesson will not take place. You will then be notified 48 hours in advance.
