Ski Polar Bears

The Polar Bear courses 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 Polar Bear courses are developed for children aged 7 to 12 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 the Polar Bears from the viewing balcony - accessible via the Bodo & Layke restaurant.
