Val d'Isère is creating a new ski-in/ski-out area for its younger visitors this winter.
Young skiers will be able to wander through the trees on suspended walkways, which lead to wooden tree houses.
Describing it as an "on-slope adventure" and christening it Village Perdu, the new area is located within the Etroits forest, 2,000m up.
The area has been created as a joint project with the French National Forestry Commission to ensure the land remains unspoilt and use is locally-sourced larch wood.
It's one of a growing number of attractions targeted at families with children and younger teens in the famous French resort.
Others include yoga sessions for children aged 4-12 in the Aqua Leisure Complex and the chance to enjoy a snowshoe treasure hunt through Val d'Isère's Boisses forest, igloo-building, analysing snow and trapper activities in a yurt (with marshmallow tasting!).
Evolution 2 have created a new Mountain Yeti course for 5 to 12 year olds themed on teaching respecting for nature, in particular the mountain environment, instilling a greater awareness of their surroundings.
