My partner was already up the mountain skiing with friends. I wanted to take my two children (aged just over two and a half and eighteen months) on the Telecabine as foot passengers to meet her for lunch. Children under the age of 5 travel free, however I was advised at the ticket office that unless I had documentation to prove they were under 5 then they would have to pay a full child fare. It cost me €8.50 for an adult and €7.50 per child just to take the Telecabine. Now I know that this isn't a great deal of money but I wondered just how many people carry around their child's birth certificate or passport, not many I imagine. I felt that this was just a cheap way of squeezing a bit more out the tourism that supports their Winter economy. The staff at the ticket office were very unhelpful and just kept pointing to a sign in the window which said I need to have proof of age for children. It was quite clear that both my children were well below the age limit, but they would not budge. Shame on Les Carroz.

If you search for ski location near Geneva with kids: this is our favorite. Easy and quick to reach. All levels of ski. Connected to the vast grand massif system. Plenty of nice restaurants. On powder days , many nice hidden and not so hidden runs

The ski area is quite ok, not really easy to get to Flaine Area (where ski slopes are amazing) although it is part of the same domaine.
The really down side is the village of Les Carroz, it is not that pretty but what really shocked us is the mentality of the people owning shops, restaurants, etc... really not welcoming at all
We wanted to try a new ski spot, we did and we will never come there again.
