Children and Youth Ski Classes
For children aged 8 and over we offer classes at 11am and 3pm on Saturdays and 11am and 3pm on Sundays. Children's classes take an hour and a half and are in sets of four lessons. Children can progress quickly and we have different levels of lessons to meet their requirements e.g. Youth Improvers on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. It will teach them to:
- control speed during linked turns
- develop turn shape and size
- strengthen and maintain balance
- build confidence when skiing on steeper terrain
For those who really take to it and want to develop their racing skills plus become a season ticket holder, we have two different groups that they can join the Mini's on Saturday mornings suitable for children up to 12 years or for older children and teenagers, they can join the Sunday morning Race Squad. For more information please visit www.sciracing.ie.
Children age 8 upwards can do a practice session on the basis that they know how to ski and can use the button lift or if they have completed a series of lessons at the Ski Club and skiing on the middle slope.
Lessons can be booked online. Please register your child first with their shoe size, weight and height. Each child needs a separate profile.
Minimum age for children's courses and lessons is 8 years upwards - Children age 5 to 7 can only do Kinder courses or lessons.
