  • Our advices -

    The weather changes quickly in the mountains, good equipment is essential ... So plan :

    • Tights,
    • Under sweater,
    • Sweater or fleece,
    • Jacket, pants or overalls in correct size of the child (large enough to cover ankles and wrists well),
    • Sunglasses or ski mask in case of snow or rain,
    • Gloves or mittens,
    • Helmet (even if it's hot),
    • Neck protector,
    • Sun cream...

    Check if your children feel comfortable in their ski boots : Do not hésitate to adjust them well and close them at home to test before going on the slopes. 

    Don't forget that it's a nature sports activity, in the mountains and most of time in cold weather. The child must therefore have slept enough, and must have eaten before lessons.
