What can I do with my children here in winter 2017 - here is a quick rundown

Snow activities

Ski school and sledging at Ax 3 Domains:

At Ax les thermes ski school there are activities for children from 3+ years in the Club piou piou school. Starting with play there are many options for courses progressing to competition level. There are two schools, the ESF and ESI. Both look inspiring and there is also sledging in an enclosed area/

Ascou resort

Is cheaper and excellent for childrens activities too with a free area for under 6 year olds and their parents. http://www.ascou-ski.com/services

Igloo building, Dog sledging and horse and cart at Plateau de Beille (Excellent Nordic ski resort)

Plateau de Beille is home to these activities and you can also go tracking in the snow looking for footprints on showshoe. To reserve dogsledging contact Angaka: http://www.angaka.com/ There are spome great areas on the way up to Beille where you can build a snow man and go sledging for free. 

The prehistoric parc in Tarascon sur Ariege is fantastic but not open until 2/4/17. Otherwise you can check out the local monthly magazine for specific manifestations for all ages available from any tourist information. 

What about the costs?

Sledging is the cheapest activity - often free if done outside a marked area in the ski resort. You can help build an igloo for children 6+yrs for 15€ for the hour. Dog sledging for 30 mintues is as follows. Adulte : 45€ - Enfant (3-12ans) : 25€ - Gratuit pour les – de 3 ans. Despite being pricey it's worth it to have time to meet the dogs. Piou Piou ski club: Ski lessons vary according to age and level but there are classes to join at various times throughout the day.
