Children’s Lessons FAQs

WHAT IS THE YOUNGEST AGE FOR SKI LESSONS?

Four years old is the youngest age for private lessons for both skiing and snowboarding.

All children taking lessons with Dropin-snow must be suitably dressed.

  • Compulsory the use of helmets for all children.
  • Strongly recommend the use of sunglasses or goggles, even on cloudy days the glare from the snow can affect the eyes.
  • Dressing them with a few layers of clothing is strongly advised. Layers can be added or removed according to weather and temperature, as this can change during the day. Also, kids tend to get cold faster than adults.
  • High-factor suncream on any exposed skin.
  • Make sure they have their lift pass on them, the best idea is to place it inside a zipped left-hand pocket.
  • Young kids can get tired and cold in lessons longer than two hours, so is a good idea to give them a snack and some money for a hot chocolate as they will usually stop for a short break.

Poles normally come free with ski rental, so take them even if they don’t use them yet. For kids under 6 years of age, we recommend not to bring them yet, except if they already use them and are comfortable with them. During the course, your child’s instructor will be able to tell you if and when they might use them.

For children’s ski lessons 3 hours long, they will usually stop for a short break halfway through. We suggest giving your child some snacks and money to get a hot chocolate.

The instructor will ask for your mobile phone number prior to the lesson, is important that you carry your phone on you so the instructor can reach you in case your child feels sick, and arrange for you to collect them.

During children’s ski lessons longer than 2 hours we always stop for a short break, as kids can get tired or cold easily. This factor is always taken into account when planning children’s lessons.
