Tips in case of storm warnings

Prepare yourself, anticipate any situation, and enjoy the mountains and snow at all times. If the south wind is blowing over 9 m/s, the gondola “Barboleuse-Les Chaux” cannot function.

In these cases, as long as the chair lift is operating normally, our courses will still take place at “les Chaux” with T-bar access from “l’Alpe des Chaux”. If the entire “Les Chaux” area is closed, our classes will be conducted in “Bretaye-Villars”.

Members of the ski school will be on hand to inform and direct you to the nearest operating lift. For the transfer to “Bretaye-Villars”, the train and bus are available.

When in doubt, the school is happy to provide information and assist when possible, but please contact us between 8h45 and 9h15 to avoid being late for the group lessons at 10h00.

Please be on time and bring your child to the alternative meeting point due to weather circumstances. If you cannot accompany your child, please make sure he/she carries a card with his/her name and a phone number we can reach you at. Please also make sure to pick up your child punctually.
