Children’s Ski Courses (6-8s)

Three part courses running on Saturday mornings 9.00am to 10.45am, we aim to teach children the basics of skiing – how to use the equipment and the lift, side-stepping and snowploughing.

We try our best to get kids up to the necessary standard for Kids Club so that they can practice their skills, but this isn’t always possible and sometimes a further lesson or two is required.

Group sizes are a maximum of 8 and cost £70. See also School Holiday Courses for other 6-8s lessons.
