Kids ski courses - Junior Freeriders for children aged 6-15 yrs
Fun and exciting kids ski lessons in small groups (6 maximum) of similar age/level juniors. Junior Freeriders are suitable for children aged 6 and above, and for teenagers up to 15 yrs old.
We have re-invented children's ski lessons with our Junior Freeriders courses - no more standing around in large groups getting bored! The main focus is to have fun, whilst learning new skills. Our kids ski courses are also designed to be challenging and rewarding.
All Junior Freeriders receive a UK Snowsports Ski Award at the end of the course.

Junior Freeriders Levels (click to expand)
|Ski levels related to 'UK Snowsports Awards' (revised 2011)|
|Beginner||I'm a complete beginner having never had skis on before|
|1 Star||I can walk with my skis on and control my speed without turning using a snowplough on a gentle slope|
|2 Star||I can snowplough turn to control my speed on green and easy blue runs|
|3 Star||I can ski a little faster now on easy blue runs, matching the skis parallel at the end of most turns|
|4 Star||I can comfortably ski blue runs and my skis are parallel for most of the turn. I ski faster with more flow and rhythm|
|5 Star||I am now turning both skis at the same time, making basic parallel turns on blues and easy red runs|
|6 Star||I am now skiing reds feeling more balanced and confident. My parallel turns are rhythmic and flowing and I'm also pole planting|
|7 Star||I can vary the size of my turns making smooth curves and using a well coordinated pole plant. I ski all reds comfortably and some black runs|
|8 Star||I can make short radius rhythmic turns with pole plant down a steep narrow run. I can 'carve' down an easy blue run. I enjoy moguls|
|9 Star||I can ski the whole mountain - any piste, moguls, off-piste and chopped snow. I would like to race or perhaps become an instructor!|
"Sophie had a lot of fun on her Junior Freeriders course and was delighted when she received her Snowlife level 5 award. We're looking forward to coming back for more next time we're in Les Gets."

"Just a note to say a huge thank you for making the children's skiing such fun last week. We are already thinking about next year, and if we return to Les Gets, we will definitely be contacting you again!"
