When winter is in full swing, families start thinking about a winter holiday and signing their kids up for lessons. We prepared some tips to help you get the most out of your kids’ lesson. As well as to give them a fun and amazing snow experience.
Dress kids for comfort
When it comes to your kids’ ski clothing, there are two aspects to have in mind. The clothing should be warm and waterproof. Kids spend a lot of time in the snow when they learn to ski or snowboard. The standard ski clothing consists of a ski suit (jacket/trousers), gloves or mittens, and a neck warmer or a scarf.
Equipment such as ski and snowboard, boots, helmet, goggles can be hired once you’re in the resort. Purchasing all the ski or snowboard equipment for your kids can be quite expensive. If you’re not sure whether or not your kids will like it or if you are afraid that they will outgrow the equipment too fast, simply rent the equipment on arrival at your holiday destination.
Check our previous blog post for more tips on what to pack for your next ski holiday.
Group or private lessons?
Whether you should choose group or private lessons to help your kids learn to ski should first and foremost depend on your kids’ needs. Most kids enjoy being around others their own age and ability. With private lessons, you receive a more direct approach with teaching adapted to your skill level. We have a detailed blog post, dedicated to the group and private lessons.
Arrive at the lesson meeting point early on the first day
Meeting points can get busy and crowded, especially during school holidays. On the first day of the lessons, the instructors divide the students into groups depending on their age and different abilities. So to get them out on the slopes on time, please have in mind to arrive earlier at the meeting point.
