Ski Mini Mooses

The Mini Moose Ski Courses are developed for children aged 4 to 6. A course includes 3 stages; each stage last three weeks and your child will receive a progress card at the end of the course recording the development of their ski skills.

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 in Mini Moose Land area, they can watch the Mini Mooses from the viewing balcony - accessible via the upstairs Mont Blanc restaurant.
