As we are nearing the school holiday, I bring this post back. I saw that the beginner ski classes still have places for those starting this weekend!

Skiing with kids of different ages and abilities can be tricky…but last weekend we revisited Moléson (near Gruyère) and made a great discovery. The resort has always been good for beginners….2 rope tows and 1 button lift at the bottom of the pistes, with ski school if needed. You can also buy a ‘pack’ of 16 trips on the button lift for chf 16* (the rope tow is free).

But now, the addition of the Pierre a Catillon restaurant makes it perfect for a days skiing with the family….They have an indoor play area, good coffee, nice staff and an excellent menu (choice of 4 kids dishes for chf 10* and burgers for Dad).

The more experienced skiers in your group can take the monorail up for some nice red and blue runs and for the hardcore skiers, there is a cable car that takes you right to the top of a gnarly black run.

For stargazers, there is also an observatory at the top, and you can even stay the night.

There’s a 4km sledge run (sledges cost chf 10* to hire) and there’s a mountain hut that serves food on the way down.

I highly recommend this resort if skiing with little ones.

Thanks Sanna for sharing this valuable info! x
