Ski & Family Hostel - The somewhat different family hotel
The Family Hostel also takes place in winter!
The idea came about when we spent a few vacation days together with friends and their families at our group home (Relais de Dranse in Liddes). The children's eyes sparkled and Marin appealed to his mother, "Mom, I really want to come back here soon".
The moms and dads were also extremely relaxed, as the small crowd of children had entertained themselves very well.
In the Family Hostel, you will meet other families with or without children. Together we make excursions, play games and cook fine meals. The St. Bernard region offers countless opportunities for families. You will meet familiar and new faces. You don't have to do anything and you can do a lot!
Petit Velan - our hostel in Bourg St Pierrre / Relais de Dranse - our group house in Liddes / Les Louerettes - our group house in Siviez (Nendaz)
The winter enchants our valley into a white adventure land.
With the very cheap ski pass and its 3 ski areas (from 70 francs for the whole season - Pass St. Bernhard) and countless other winter activities, you will have a great time with us.
The beginner's lift is within walking distance from the Petit Velan hostel (9 Fr. / day). We organize a shuttle service to the other ski areas. More info about our ski resorts

But there are also weeks when we cook together. Depending on the date and the desire of the participants.
If someone wants to take his work with him or the mommy / daddy can just take a little vacation, there is also the possibility to set up a workstation. The internet is highspeed in any case! But beware: children's screams! Do not forget headphones!
The parents can share the tasks: so the mommy or daddy can also do something else: Ski touring, snowboarding, dancing,..

LE CHABLE (VERBIER VALLEY STATION) IS 20 MINUTES AWAY FROM US BY CAR
So, how was it?
I never thought family holidays could be so relaxing! The children totally well-behaved after being allowed to experience so much all day. The husband satisfied and challenged (he won at the chess tournament). There is no price for that. You can't get that at the Palace in St. Moritz either!
I was there with my family... Unbelievable that I was able to experience this! I'm sure it's as historic as Woodstock!
Really cool. I haven't felt this young and vital in a long time! We danced and celebrated so much
My husband is friends with the organiser. He said let's try it out over New Year. I was very sceptical. Family hostel? Celebrate together? Hmm? And it was so good! So family like! Or almost like when we stayed in a backpacker in Thailand...
