The holidays have started, in a few hours you will be on the slopes! But before that a small transfer is necessary between your different types of transport.
Do you have a few hours to wait at the station? In the airport hall? How to keep toddlers and future champions waiting.

Tip #1: Destination Game

Nothing like a little geography to liven up the troops! Are you near the billboards, in possession of a departure/arrival timetable leaflet or near the audio announcements? Three options are available to you:

  • Use the letters of the destinations to make the simplest game! Which destinations have the most letters A? Etc…
  • Have a monument or story cited by destination displayed! A little culture !
  • What if your toddler located the destinations displayed on a map?

Tip n°2: The traditional tour of the shops

There's nothing like stretching your legs to pass the time. What if you took a tour of the boutiques and other shops in the surrounding area? This will perhaps be an opportunity to discover local specialties.

Tip #3: In the suitcase there is…

“In my luggage, there is… a ski mask,” says the first player, for example. The next person repeats what has already been said, then adds what he in turn put in his suitcase: “In my luggage, there is… a ski mask and sun cream”. The next player continues “In my luggage there is… a ski mask, sunscreen and a book about turtles”. And so on until a player dries up.
It's also an interesting way to check that nothing is forgotten in your suitcases.

Tip #4: Remember the best moments

“What are the 5 best moments you’ve had since we left home?” A good way to put your toddler in a positive state of mind before the rest of the climb.

Tip #5: Almost on the slopes!

Have you thought about printing a piste map? Turn on your touchscreen tablet or smartphone to the ski area map and off you go. The principle is to ask your child to give you the shortest route between two tracks that you have defined. You can do variations “without going through the black slopes” or “by necessarily going up to Caron”.

Tip #6: Nothing beats good coloring… Made in Val Thorens

Just a few more hours to wait before your next train or shuttle to the station. Do you know the coloring of the station map? Val Thorens? Will you be able to find the zip line?
The coloring is on sale at Val Thorens, In the Tourist Office shop
