Ski Schools for Children in Tirol

There are a plenty of quality-approved ski schools across Tirol offering families features such as special ski courses for children, courses with instructors who speak other languages, indoor kindergardens and childcare during lunchtimes.

Parents who wish to enjoy their holiday in the knowledge that their children are in safe hands should choose one of the quality-approved ski schools in Tirol's top family regions. These snowsports schools must fulfil even stricter criteria than the others in the region. For example, snowsports instructors working with children are obliged to attend courses each year on the latest teaching methods for children of different ages. Children as young as three years of age are welcome at these ski schools, which also offer plenty of fun attractions and activities away from the slopes.

Each ski school has a separate beginners' area with easy-access conveyor belt lifts and a range of learning aids. There is also an indoor kindergarden close by where youngsters can warm up on cold days and play inside when the weather gods are not smiling. The schools use a universally understandable orientation system to make it easy for kids from different countries and speaking different languages to find their way around. Changing from one group to another during the week is no problem, and at the end of each course there is a race where all the children can show what they have learned.
