Lessons run Monday to Friday during school holiday weeks, with groups limited to a maximum of four children, to ensure the utmost care and attention for each child.

Kids Academy: Let the ES instructors’ boundless enthusiasm spark excitement in your children. With exciting five-day or half-day programmes for 6-12-year-olds at 5 different ability levels, this tailored approach means that kids will have an enriching time and make friend with those skiing at a similar level. They can expect fun-filled days, video feedback, a freeride competition, a safe introduction to the park, daily lunches and, of course, medals!
