Snowboard 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!

There is no doubt that snowboarding is cool, and if your kids can’t stop talking about wanting to do 1080s and boarder cross then this is definitely the sport for them. 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.

We offer the lessons for children aged 11-15 years, which provides snowboarding tuition with friendly, experienced instructors. Running on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during summer, they cater from beginner to wannabe champs. Our aim is to make snowboarding fun and accessible and a place to develop young talent.

The lesson for 11-15 year olds starts from Beginner and having never been on a snowboard before, to being competent on the main slope.

For children who lead an action packed life and need more flexibility, the individual levels can be purchased separately. After each level has been successfully completed, kids can continue onto the next level.

Each child attending the Kids Snow 11-15 year old lessons will receive a progress card at the end of each lesson so they can keep an eye on their development on the slopes.

Although parents and guardians are not able to join us on the slope, they can watch the cool kids from the viewing balcony - accessible via the upstairs restaurant.
