A child must be at least 3 years old at the time of the course. However, we highly recommend parents book these young children in a private lesson or register them for a trial day in a group lesson. This gives the child and parent an opportunity to see if the child is developmentally prepared. Parents should keep in mind that each child develops differently, so some 3-year-olds may not be ready.
Children can enrol in a private snowboard lesson from the age of 5. They can attend group lessons when they are 8 years of age or older.
Parents may observe their children’s lesson from a distance. We ask that parents do not interfere in the course in any way. Parents should also keep in mind that it is often better for the child to concentrate on skiing as opposed to being distracted by their family members in the immediate vicinity.
We offer a 10% discount for 1 person when at least 3 people from the same family enrol in group courses.
Beginners have lunch in our VIGILIO CLUB. More advanced children eat at the restaurants on the slopes according to each ski instructor's programme.
