Ski 11-15 Year Old Lessons

 

This Summer from the 26th July we are offering 11-15 year old lessons, which are a great way for kids to learn new and exciting skills on the snow slopes and have something cool to tell their mates!

The three levels of the lessons are developed for children aged 11 to 15 years of age only.

 
We recognise that each person 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 slope, they can watch their children from the viewing balcony - accessible via the upstairs restaurant.
