Learning to Ski: Is Your Child Ready?

Every child grows and develops at a different pace. Your child is ready to learn to ski if you can answer "yes" to the following questions:
  • Is he comfortable being dropped off in a school or pre-school type environment?

  • Does he have the strength and endurance to be physically active for up to one hour in the cold and in weather that may be wet and possibly windy and stormy?

  • Is he physically strong enough to walk around in skis and boots?

  • Will he wear proper clothing without a fight?

The most important factor to consider is whether your child will have fun.  Children have a lifetime to learn a sport.  If you want them to succeed, it is important that they enjoy themselves.
