EXPLORERS

ADVANCED

LEVEL

BLUE | Rabbit Runs | Snowlife 4/5 | ESF Fleche

Explorers are group ski lessons designed for children to start moving around the mountain and exploring what is on offer. They can adventure over to neighbouring resorts, try the fun parks, race their friends and explore some easy routes through the trees. We have created a program that gives them just that but also teaches them how to be safe in the mountains and take that next step under the tuition and guidance of industry experts.

Your children need to be able to slide, stop and turn on blue terrain comfortably. A slight snowplough at this stage is still ok.

WHAT WE DO

  • Explore new trails and hidden paths
  • Test their balance with some new tricks and terrain
  • Teach them how to use the whole mountain safely
  • Develop their piste skills
  • Create a weekly movie they can show their friends and family
  • Take them to the best snow and terrain
  • End of week presentation
  • Reward them with a cool prize
