Getting ready for Christmas
Where does Santa Claus go in December? Rather than stressing over last-minute preparations, he has decided to go somewhere to relax before his round-the-world gift-giving tour. Between a nap and one of Mrs. Claus’s cookies, you’ll get the chance to have a private meeting with Santa in his famous cottage. A number of “Honorary Elves” come out for this classic pre-holiday excursion. It’s becoming Christmas’s worst-kept secret!

Activity suggestions for the Holidays
This free event for kids is a great opportunity to celebrate the Holidays and the beginning of the ski Season! Igor, the ski school mascot, has donned his white cloak and is now ready to strap on his skis. Throughout the day, children are invited to follow his tracks and try the various challenges he has in store for them. A great way to experience the joys of winter!

This year, Festi Lumière is celebrating its fifth anniversary, and for the occasion some colourful new activities and surprises will be added. Thousands of lights will illuminate the site, creating a magical winter atmosphere! They will twinkle in a rainbow of colours, lighting up the trees, ice sculptures and animal-shaped structures. There will also be a gingerbread house, illuminated slides, inflatable games, and an enchanted tree. Our mascot and our animal ambassador will keep the kids amused all evening! Also, come warm up by the outdoor fireplace as you enjoy our singer’s festive music.
