Child instructors know how best to train your child because that’s their job, and this alone makes them more experienced than you. Besides which, the child will have more fun and incentives among its peers, and during their lessons you’ll be able to enjoy skiing by yourself.

Children's in skiing school

Before choosing an appropriate skiing class for them, it’s good to ask around regarding how the class program is organized. Ask how many teachers they have, and how many children are in each group, etc. When your child starts attending these classes, whatever you do, don’t create additional pressure for them by constantly being with them and interfering with the work of the instructors. If you’re interested in your child’s progress, observe from a distance where he or she won’t be able to see you.

It is important that ski schools with children go only on slopes where there are other instructors on hand with their groups. That way, in the event of any injury, one teacher can leave with the injured student, while the other can take over supervision of the rest of the group.
