Child Specific Information
We recognise the unique challenge of taking young children skiing and have put together the following information to help ensure you are fully prepared.
Please let us know any specific requirements you may have for your children on the online Holiday Information Chalet form so our staff in Méribel can prepare for the arrival of your family. If you have booked childcare, please let us know so we can liaise with the providers.
What to bring
We suggest that you bring the following for children:
• Several changes of warm clothing (a few thin layers are often more effective than one thick layer).
• Waterproof ski suit, waterproof gloves and a hat.
• Helmet and goggles for children who will be skiing. Helmets can be hired in resort.
• Waterproof boots for outside and slippers for indoors.
• Sun cream/block, lip salve and sunglasses with strap (for when not skiing).
• Favourite cuddly toys/comforter and books.
• Special ointment and creams.
• Nappies and baby wipes (these are available in the resort supermarket but they are expensive).
• Special pillows or blankets as needed although we do provide all cot and bed linen, including quilts and blankets.
• Special food products. You may not be able to buy familiar foodstuffs in the resort. Baby milk from home is generally preferable to French baby milk.
• A sling or pushchair, however we do have a small supply of these in resort.
We ask that you ensure that all of your child’s clothes, shoes and personal items are named to avoid any mix-up or loss of property.
Our children’s meals have been devised to reflect ‘home-cooked’ flavours and ‘top favourites’. All meals are freshly prepared using the best ingredients. Mid-morning snacks, lunch and afternoon tea snacks are included for children with Meriski childcare booked (full day or afternoon). Children’s tea is provided for all children by your Chalet chef; if you have booked a whole chalet you can advise us of any specific dishes you would like your children to have; alternatively please let us know of any special requirements or preferred dishes.
Evening babysitting for the chalet staff night off should be arranged with Méribel Nannies in advance.
Our vehicles will have the correct age appropriate child seats for your children.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
