Try a ski jump in Courchevel

Having hosted the sport during the 1992 Winter Olympics, Courchevel (External link) is known for its links to ski jumping (External link) . Starting from this season, children can also give it a go on a 25-metre jump, led by an instructor from the ESF – provided they have achieved Bronze level in skiing. Prices start from €120 per private 90-minute lesson. Courchevel was the first resort to offer the Magnestick, a magnetised vest for children worn over the ski suit which holds them to a chairlift for extra safety.
