Choose from our range of activity holidays specially designed for children and youth groups on this superb site surrounded by nature, not far from the village centre and multiple activity locations.

The Ethic Etapes chalets are laid out on a large estate at the foot of the ski runs. Accommodation for young people is generally assigned in the capacious main chalet and the site offers plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces.


The centre

In winter, we generally host groups from Sunday to the following Saturday, but you can arrive any time on the Sunday or even on the Saturday according to your holiday plans and means of transport. We can distribute rooms or have a space reserved for you depending on your time of arrival. Our extensive hire service will provide you with your lift passes and ski equipment.

From Éthic Étapes CIS, located at the foot of the slopes in the Val Cenis ski resort (1400 – 2800 m) in Maurienne Vanoise, the Escargot run is easy to access (5 minutes) and the ski slopes come right to the front door of our chalets!

The ski area includes a total of 125 km of runs, and the Lanslebourg snow front is right next to the CIS with the 56 runs offering a range of levels of difficulty.

The all-inclusive ski holiday for youth and children’s groups includes:

Full-board accommodation in rooms or apartments with 2 to 8 beds and hearty meals.

  • Ski lift passes valid for 7 days granting access to 125 km of runs
  • Ski equipment available from the CIS hire service, open every day
  • Evening activities and entertainment during your stay


Activities besides skiing

In the village, you can count on the ice rink, events in the resort, different local services (cinema, shops), introductory courses in dog teams, snowshoe walking and visits to farms or cheese producers.

During free time at the CIS, youngsters can enjoy the games rooms, snow area for sledging and evening activities.

In summer, we host groups from Sunday to Sunday with a certain flexibility to meet your needs, of course.

Environmentally friendly

Last but not least, the Ethic Etapes service has been awarded an Ecolabel

Over the years, our centre has become a spearhead of sustainable development, with new buildings that are respectful of the environment, use of environmentally friendly products across all our services, local produce for our home-cooked menus… At the CIS, we promote your well-being while respecting the mountains!

This also means monitoring our water and electricity consumption, promoting the use of renewable sources and optimising use as much as possible to maximise your comfort. The EU Ecolabel and Montagne 2040 label, which we were awarded in 2015, are important rewards for us and a guarantee of trust and quality for you.
