The restaurants serve delicious and nutritious children's menus, whilst the exciting kids' bar menu offers tasty, non-alcoholic "mocktails" and, a real favourite, the enchanting "Magic Potion". After a day on the slopes, children can relax and unwind just like mum and dad, with the glorious junior spa treatments - including the "Little Skier Break" or the "Young Skier of the High Summit" packages. For the littlest guests, the hotel can arrange an array of baby equipment, allowing you to travel lightly and stress-free.


Situated at the summit of Europe's highest ski resort, Val Thorens, Hotel Koh-I Nor is an unrivalled destination for those seeking to try out some truly unforgettable slopes. Between its powder snow fields, perfectly groomed runs and variety of pistes, the area is a paradise for beginners and experienced skiers alike, whatever their ability level. Ideally located in the 3 Vallées - the world's largest ski area, boasting 600 kilometres of runs - every day of skiing will be different, whilst the spectacular views remain the same. The Koh-I Nor Ski Shop houses an array of world-class ski and snowboarding equipment that is available to hire.

The concierge team at Elegant Resorts would be delighted to assist with arrangements for your next luxury ski holiday, including pre-booking equipment and kindergarten places. Lift passes for certain resorts can be booked by us prior to travel, but can also be purchased upon arrival. We strongly recommend securing ski or snowboard tuition (if required) before you travel, whether individual or group lessons are needed. To make the most of the ski school experience, it is essential that pupils are of the same ability-level – otherwise, separate instructors will be required. Please let your Travel Consultant know you wish to have lessons when you make your holiday booking, as they would be pleased to advise you.
