Our Mini groups are specially designed to care for children from 4-7 yrs old. They run with a maximum of four children to create the safest possible learning environment for our youngest skiers.
Children of all levels learn well with constant encouragement and reassurance so our Mini courses run for 5 consecutive days. Sessions are 2 hrs long, as the optimum learning duration for youngsters, leaving plenty of time to ski as a family during the day.
Age is important to our younger skiers so we make sure that there will usually be a maximum age range of 3 yrs in any Mini group. In some instances, Mini courses may also be available for older age groups.
The Mini program is available during UK school holidays.
