Children Ski School
Toton - Junior - Mini Champs and Race Training Ski Classes
Children in Toton or Junior Ski Clubs are dropped off at the crèche/Snowbizz lounge from 9am. This gives the children time to play together with activities to suit their age group until the start of the ski class. We find that confidence and friendship are built quickly in this way, and the younger ones are completely relaxed by the time our nannies and ski instructors take them out to ski.
In order to have childrens’ classes of same level, all the children are assessed on the first morning and re-assessed on an on-going basis. At the end of the week we have our ‘Awards Ceremony’ to celebrate their hard work and see the children collect their badges.
Ski school plays a huge part in the children’s’ holiday so we aim for the week to go as easily as possible. Which is why we have the same Junior members of staff there each day to provide feedback for parents or just to give an encouraging smile to a nervous child. For our youngest skiers – the Toton’s not only does an instructor go out with them but so does a nanny to help them with their first time on the snow. Whether it’s singing songs or giving words of encouragement we feel it makes a huge difference in a child’s first experience on skiing.
Our Toton’s are our youngest skiers aged 3 to 4 years. We have a maximum of 5 per class with 1 instructor and 1 nanny throughout the week. The Toton’s have 1 hour per day for 6 days a week.
Junior Ski Club
Our Junior ski classes are for those aged 5 to 13 years. We provide a variety of classes from beginners to race training with no more than 8 people per class. The lessons are for two hours, 6 days a week and are constantly monitored by our instructors to check everyone is happy. We never hold anyone back so movement between classes is a normal part of the process.
After several years in our Junior classes most of the youngsters are ready to go for gold! Our mini champ classes are only for those who have already achieved their 3 star awards with us, and need a new challenge.
Our race training classes create the chance for every budding British racer to improve their technique. These classes are for children aged 11 years and older. In order to join the race training classes we require the ski level of Diamond (good parallels on red runs) to be achieved.
