Lessons in small groups
are more cost-effective
1 | Children making their first turns in the snow, first-graders up to 10 years old, must have a private solo lesson.
Children love movement and learning new things. A child must be constantly motivated, feel safe and comfortable: they must be warm, take breaks, have fluids, and need a teacher, with all their individual and personalized attention just for themselves. And we can ensure this only in a private lesson.
2 | For children up to 10 years old, beginners, and intermediate skiers, we recommend no more than 3 people in a group.
In a group with small children, there should be no additional persons aged 10 and above with them.
3 | The SAME skiing level is required in the group.
Please do not create groups with mixed levels. In such a case, divide participants into multiple groups. Imagine how a lesson in a group with older experienced skiers, together with first-grade children or beginners, would turn out.
These rules are recommended by the Slovak accredited educational organization ZSL. We have incorporated the adherence to these simple rules into our reservation system to ensure the safety of your children.
Preferred Language of Instruction
During the lessons, the main language, besides Slovak, is primarily English, but we will try to accommodate the languages spoken by your children as much as possible. In the reservation system, instructors are marked with the international language abbreviation they speak, to facilitate your choice. Please write in the note if there is anything we should know about the children: for example, health restrictions, preferred language, the need for skiing or snowboarding equipment, and so on.
SKI LEVELS FOR CHILDREN
Children are grouped based on their age and abilities. Our level system ranges from blue to red and black, for children aged 6 to 10 years old.
