What Ski Level is your Child?
It’s not always easy to determine your child’s ski level so we’ve made some handy videos to help which you can see below, alongside our New Generation children’s level descriptions. Getting it right first time helps us place your child in the right group, which is the most important thing for their enjoyment and improvement. And happy children means happy parents and more ski holidays in the future!
All New Generation ski and snowboard lessons are taught in English, in small groups, with helpers for the little ones where possible. You can see from the following selection of children’s ski level videos, how to define where your child is with their skiing.
We use the Snowlife award system for our children’s groups. You can find more info about that here.
- Beginners age 4 and 5
Whippersnappers is our first attempt at skiing so we’ll try and make it a good one! We have small groups with a maximum of six with helpers if there are 3 or more children. Our Whippersnappers lessons are usually shorter than lessons for older children so we don’t get fed up. We’ll get used to the environment and the clunky equipment. We’ll have some fun, build some snowmen, have some snacks and see if we can ski by ourselves by the end of the week.
What we’ll learn: How to manoeuvre around in ski kit and how to ski. That skiing is fun. That we can do it! And that we want to do it again next year!
The award for Whippersnappers: For having a go we will get a polar bear badge and if I can slide in a straight line, stop and walk around with skis on I will get my 1*. If I can do plough turns I could even get a 2*.
