If you’re looking for ski lessons for toddlers, look no further! Your child can start ski lessons as early as 4 years old and learn skiing as a skill for life. At our kids’ ski school we have a team of highly experienced instructors who can get your little ones comfortable on the snow.

 

Your child will be joined by others of the same experience or ability as them, or if they're a beginner they'll be joined by others who've never set foot on the slopes! We aim to make our ski lessons for 4 year olds as accessible as possible, as well as safe. This means we run at a reduced capacity to keep a close watch and there'll be a maximum of 3 participants to 1 instructor in the ski lessons for toddlers. Find out more about our activities and their age restrictions.

 

 Included at Kids’ Ski School:

 

  • Instruction on our slope
  • Skis, boots & helmet hire

 

We recognise that each child learns at a different pace and that some children may need slightly longer to successfully complete each stage. Our qualified ski instructors will discuss with you any recommendations they have for your child’s progression.

 

 

 

Although parents and guardians are not able to join us on the snow they can spectate from the viewing balcony - accessible via the upstairs Lodge Bar & Kitchen.
