Skiing and boarding are all-weather sports. A weather forecast and the time of year might tell you something about what to expect from the weather but basically we have to expect anything – rain, cold or sunshine. We can supplement you/your child’s clothing. In some of our colder and wetter weather, the students own (and well fitting) clothes will greatly help with comfort for the day. A thermal first layer, a warmth layer (especially on top), a waterproof layer, proper ski socks, warm and waterproof mitts, a neck warmer and light hat (for under the helmet we provide), will keep the student warm and comfortable and focused on fun in even the tougher conditions. If the student has a well fitting helmet and goggles, these are also recommended otherwise, we will gladly supply them, from our equipment hut. On sunny days, please apply sunscreen, before arrival.
Helmets are mandatory for children under 13 and for any one in a sit ski (regardless of age). It’s a good idea to let your child know there is no negotiation on this matter, beforehand. They are strongly
recommended for all
If your child has any flash cards or assistive devices/communication aids please bring these with you, if practical.
