Your child can start the ski from 2 and half years old.
If your child haven't been skiing yet or if he is less than 4 years old, we advise to you to book first a discovery session for him (we keep a place for him for the rest of the week waiting to see if he wants to continue).
For the others levels in the garden kids we advise you to fallow this link: https://www.esivalloire.com/en/activities/kindergarten
They acquire the ski technique without even realizing it. They play the games specially invented for them, inside the kindergarten.
For his lesson, your child will need the ski clothes, helmet, ski equipment, ski mask/sun glasses, sun cream and something for the tea snack
(They don’t need the ski sticks)
There is no need to take a ski pass – the kindergarten is situated in the center of the village and we have our own ski row.
From the moment that your child has the skills to go to the ski slopes, his instructor will inform you about the new meeting point and about the ski pass that you have to take for him for the next day.
Directly in the kindregarten which is situated in the middle of the avenue de la Vallée d’Or, next to the sledge slope (center of the village).
It is better to tell to the instructor about any allergy/sickness so he can easily react in case of a problem.
Don’t panic, the instructor is a professional who is used of those type of situations, so you just have to:
- leave your child under the care of the instructor and don’t stay to long with them
- avoid to be seen by your child
- avoid any contact with your child before the end of his lesson
