An excellent start to learn skiing or snowboarding

As you know, Le Relais is the number one family ski-snow resort. The best place to learn, regardless of your age.

That’s why, in collaboration with Desjardins, we created the Learning Zone, which offers a free 5-step introduction to skiing or snowboarding. You can learn on your own or with the help of a certified instructor. The Learning Zone lets you discover the sensation of sliding and allows you to work on your balance, mobility and speed through different stations. The ultimate goal is to launch yourself safely and confidently down the slopes after learning the basics in a fun way. It is simple, intuitive, and so much more fun than arriving at the top stressed out because you have no idea how to get to the bottom!

Once you have gone through the Learning Zone steps, you can improve your skills on a slightly steeper slope. Just enough to glide along safely. Above all, you can apply what you’ve just learned. A lift will take you to the top of the training hill. This is the last step before heading up the mountain to the Dorothée or the Familiale trails. Once that is done, it’s time to discover the pleasure of sliding in the forest in the 1D glade. You can also enjoy the snow park and safely try out our beginner modules on the 15B slope, Le Hameau.
