ZigZag children's ski lessons Samoens

Childrens group ski lessons

Share the fun of learning to ski or snowboard in group lessons for children at your level.

Led by English speaking instructors, ZigZag’s children’s group ski lessons run with just 4 to 8 students per class in order to enable each child the chance to receive individual attention while enjoying the camaraderie of a group atmosphere.  Forget long snakes trailing behind the instructor – we don’t compromise on quality and insist on genuine technical correction and encouragement.

ZigZag children’s group ski lessons are great value for money because:

  • our small groups mean less time in lift queues and more actual skiing time
  • a medal for every child included in the lesson price
  • maximum 8 children per class
  • more individual attention for each child
  • rolling assessment throughout the week, so no time wasted doing level tests

**ZigZag instructors have lift queue priority, so your children can jump the queue during their lesson time!

ZigZag’s children’s group lessons are ideal for children aged 6 to 12 years of age with any level of experience, from beginner to expert.

Please note that in children’s group ski lessons we can accept beginners from 6 years of age (younger beginners should start with Tiny Tots private tuition).  Children aged under 6 years of age may join group lessons only if they’re already able to confidently take a button lift on their own.

If your child has skied before, please select their current level of ability from our list. Then, either use our online booking system, or contact us by email with the child’s name and date of birth.  Get in early for peak holiday weeks, as our small groups do fill up quickly!

Children’s group ski lessons run for 2.5hrs x 5 days Monday to Friday.  A choice of two or three sessions is available, depending on the period :

  • Morning (09h15-11h45)
  • Midday (12h00-14h30)
  • Afternoon (14h45-17h15)*

Medals and certificates of achievement are included in the lesson price and are awarded at the final lesson (so parents needn’t spend Friday evening at the ski school office!)

*In December and January the afternoon session runs from (14h00-16h30) as the days are shorter and so the lifts close earlier.

Our prices include a medal of achievement for each child.

Could I thank your instructors for their patience and excellent teaching over half term, back in February.  My three children had a year learning with ESF two years ago and although they learnt to ski at the beginner stage successfully, they didn’t really enjoy their lessons. This year, with ZigZag they had much more fun and their skiing came on as a result.  My eldest daughter was in Vincent’s bronze group, George was in a crystal group with Julian, and my 5 year old daughter Annie was in a beginner group with Jo.   They all loved their instructors and had a fantastic experience. We have already booked to return to Samoens for half term 2014.
