Children can usually cope with joining the group ski lessons from around the age that they start school, which is why we say the group lessons are for children aged 6 – 12 years.  Children who are 5 years old may also fit in the group and can try out the first day in the group to see whether it suits them.  Younger children, aged from 3 – 5 years usually get on best taking a one-to-one lesson with the instructor and a 1.5 hour private lesson per day is enough.   The instructor can then keep close to the child (as they tend to lose concentration quickly), keep them engaged and entertained and can stop for a break when the child needs it.
