"Great experience all round. They picked our daughter (4 years old) from the hotel and they all spoke fantastic English. Alberta was excellent and our daughter ran into the bus every day. Her skiing was also great by the end of the week. Different teaching to France as they have poles which made a big difference to her confidence. Highly recommend! Thank you!"

At what age can children ski or snowboard?

Occasionally there are children who can already learn to ski at the age of 3 1/2 years.

How many days should the lessons last for our children?

During the holiday weeks, children's ski courses for beginners usually start on Sunday or Monday.

Is it better to put our child in a group lesson or a private tuition?

The group lessons are generally recommended for beginners. Learning together with peers is more fun. The children are not constantly in the focus and have the possibility to catch their breath between the individual exercises, while the other children are on it. In order not to underchallenge highly talented children, a private ski instructor is recommended.

Can we join our child with a private instructor?

Yes, that's possible. Some providers even offer special family offers. Otherwise, you can simply book a private instructor for children or adults and inform the ski school after booking that you would like to go together.
