Can we bring the kids?
Yes! We have on-mountain crèche facilities for children aged as young as 3 months to 5 years run by fully qualified Early Childhood Educators. We also offer dedicated group lessons for children, aged 5 years and up, where you can opt for half day or full day lessons.
What do we need to bring on the day?
Make sure you wrap up warm! Plenty of layers mean you’ll keep warm when it’s cold and are able to cool down when it’s hot. Make sure you bring eye protection, sun screen (yes, even in mid-winter!), hat, gloves and one pair of thick socks will do. Too many pairs of socks and your ski or snowboard boots can become very uncomfortable!
