The Teen Freeride courses create a different learning environment for older children and teenagers, with 6 skiers maximum per group.
Older children, who are confident skiers, really benefit from practise time between sessions and the longer lesson duration allows them to go on adventures, explore and have fun, while learning lots!
The Teen Freeride program runs on alternate days. Oh, and we understand that not all teenagers are 'morning people' so these sessions are in the afternoons!
Available during UK school holidays. Early season courses are available as 2.5 hr sessions, 7.5 hr total duration costing £175.
