Snowboard Lessons for 7-11 Year Olds

Snowboarding Lessons for Kids

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 cool snowbaording lessons for children aged 7-11 years, which provides snowboarding tuition with friendly, experienced instructors. Running throughout the week they cater from beginner to wannabe champs. Our aim is to make snowboarding fun and accessible and a place to develop young talent.

For children who lead an action packed life and need more flexibility, individual levels can be purchased separately. After each level has been successfully completed, kids can continue onto the next level. We also offer courses which allow your children to complete a selection of levels all in one.

Each child attending will receive a progress card at the end of each course 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 from the viewing balcony - accessible via the upstairs restaurant.
