Info for parents

With your help we can facilitate your child’s introduction to the Ski School, so our ski and snowboard instructors can offer your child maximum of fun and learning, in a safe environment!

What does my child need to take to the first ski lesson?

  • Complete and up to date equipment: skis, helmet, poles (from 'Blue King' up)
  • Clothing suited to the weather conditions: sunglasses/goggles, sunscreen, dry gloves
  • Pouch (available at the Ski School office) containing lesson ticket and ski pass.
    Note: For children up to 7 years the Ski School office provides a voucher for a discounted ski pass to be purchased at the railway station
  • CHF 5.00 to buy a drink during break time up the mountain
    (Children who have lessons at out Beginners Area take their break at the Ski School House where they get a free drink and snack)

What else should I consider to help my child's introduction to Ski School?

  • Is your child well prepared for the temporary separation from parents?
    Please let the instructor be in charge during the lesson, so you give the teacher and your child a chance to get to know each other. While you’re welcome to watch, please keep a distance, so your child can focus on the tasks set up by the instructor.
  • Please be patient and give us some time!
    If you don’t see much progress in the first couple of hours, please give us and your child some more time. It is important that your child first becomes familiar with the new situation on snow and unfamiliar ski equipment.
  • Safety for your child:
    Please make sure that your child doesn’t wear any clothes with loose straps, scarves or loose long hair, so nothing gets caught on lifts.
  • Please share any important information with us!
    Does your child have any medical conditions or allergies (nuts allergy)? Please make sure you let us know about them, so we can address any specific needs. It’s best to let us know when booking, but please also inform your child’s instructor.
  • Punctuality
    Please bring your child to the meeting point well in time for the lesson and then pick up punctually at the end.
