Snowboard Husky Pups

The Husky Pups Snowboarding Courses are developed for children aged 4 to 6.  A course includes 3 stages; each stage can last up to three weeks and your child will receive a progress card at the end of the course recording the development of their snowboarding 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 snowboarding 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 watch the Husky Pups from the viewing balcony - accessible via the upstairs Mont Blanc restaurant.
