10 Tips for a skiing holiday with children!

TIP 1
Parents should prepare their child for the ski course. Let your child know how many days he/she will be attending the ski course, half or full days and that you won't be there. Tell him/her that it is important they learn how to ski during ski course, so that after a while, they can ski with you.
TIP 2
It is important you don´t hang around too long when you drop off your children at their ski class in the morning. 
The longer you stay, the harder it will be to leave.
TIP 3
Good ski-equipment
. Let the ski rental shop inform you about your options. Do not rent old equipment. Modern skis will improve the learning process.
TIP 4
Make sure your child is fit for his/her first day at the ski course.
If you arrived late in the evening, we recommend you have your child attend his/her ski course in the afternoon or one day later.
TIP 5
Rent or buy a helmet
. Safety first! A helmet is mandatory for all children up to 14 years old.
TIP 6
We suggest you have your child join the group for lunch
. First of all, it is difficult for the instructor to set a specific time to meet for lunch with the parents. Secondly, the group does not always eat in the same restaurant, they ski within the entire Zillertal Arena area (only groups that ski on red and black slopes).
TIP 7
To ensure you get the class you want, we advise you to make a reservation in advance.(group course and private lesson)
. Only this way, we can guarantee you get the desired ski lesson. Online booking ? Click here!
TIP 8
Get all the information you need from our skischool office: meeting point, lift card, group classification, ski race, presentation, kids disco etc.
TIP 9
Do not book a full day (4 hours) ski course for 2 and 3 year olds. We suggest you book our "combi offer". This package includes a ski course (50 minutes for the 2 year olds and 2 hours for the 3 year olds) an afterwards some playtime in our kindergarten.
TIP 10
Check the weather forecast. If it is a sunny day, it is very important to put on sunlotion. If it is a very cold day, (-20 degrees, for example), make sure your child has enough warm clothes to wear, scarf, ski cap, waterproof ski clothing, waterproof gloves and thermo underwear.

AT WHAT TIME DO WE START?
