It was much easier than eating out every night and was really affordable. After a long day skiing, no one wants the hassle or responsibility of preparing dinner for everyone and the small supermarkets in ski resorts are really expensive so outside caterers are ideal. We used a babysitting service to come into the chalet and look after the 3 boys together.
They were British nannies and were all qualified.
By law we needed 2 nannies for the 3 kids and we had them for 3 half days from 9am-2pm. They boys loved them and had a great time and it gave us the chance to ski together and have a bit of time off.

We hired Mountain Buggy pushchairs while we were out there from Intersport the same p lace we hired all our ski equipment. You could use your normal pushchair from home but the Mountain Buggys were amazing.
You can get through the snow, across ice and slush and up and down curbs with no bother at all. I really wish I had a photo of Sam walking down the street in Les Gets with Joseph in a baby carrier, George on one side of the pushchair and his snowboard strapped into the other side.
It also folds down in one so is easy for the plane. Of course, you can go a week without all these things but it just makes life a little easier!

There are even services to drop off nappies and wipes for the week. We took lots of toys with us but having new toys and books arrive half way through the week was brilliant. These coaches are normally packed so you have to sit with the kids on your lap as you wind your way through the mountains. George was sick on the transfer coach to Tignes last year so we wanted to avoid this at all costs!
Les Gets is well known as being family friendly. And because there are loads of kids it means there are loads of services for the kids like the nannies, toy hire and pushchair rental.
