Information for kindergarten/after school care and activity school

We believe that children should learn basic cross country techniques through playful exercises int the snow.

For kindergarten/after school care and activity school

Every winter in January and February the Children's ski school take place for kindergarten, after school care and activity school. Through a 5 week course (5 times x 75 min), children develop basic cross country skills through playful exercises.

Most kindergartens/after school care and activity school make use of our transportation offer. They will be picked up at an agreed time/place and escorted to and from one of our 11 different ski school areas.
Companions from the kindergarten/after school care/activity school will be with the children through the day and support them if needed. Our instructors will ensure a good atmosphere and offer playful, varied and fun activities through the course. 

Our focus during the course is to ensure that the children ecperience skiing as playful and fun. We will through the course customize our program to the children's skills and prerequisites.
The children's ski school is a unique arena for great skiing experiences and to ensure that the children develop balance, focusing and other important skills.
We experience that skiing without poles allows the children to learn, experience and improve the balance faster. We therefore only use ski poles on special occasions.
You will find the last day at the ski school special with a different set up for the skiing area, medal ceremony, biscuits and juice.
