Top tips to prepare children for the slopes from Inghams
We’ve asked the ski experts at Inghams to give us a few tips on how to prepare our children when going on holiday to the slopes! Have a look at the tips below and let us know yours! Getting Dressed For Skiing: Clothing: – Always best to layer clothing so that they can add more or remove some depending on the weather. – Good fitting ski boots and helmet are essential. – If wearing sunglasses they should be on a chain so that they do not get lost if they fall or get taken off. – If wearing goggles make sure they are attached to the helmet. – Gloves/Mittens should be easy to put on and off. In their Pockets: – A small sun cream and lipsalve as the weather is constantly changing in the mountains – A snack – something to give a bit of energy during the morning – A couple of Euros – just in case they stop for a hot chocolate (normally more likely to happen if the weather is bad) Preparing Your Child For The Lesson: – Make sure you are on time, or even a bit early for the lesson so it starts calm and not rushed. – Tell your children exactly where you will meet them after their lesson so that they do not worry. – Make sure they know the name of their instructor. They may be tired after their lesson so it’s always a good time to stop for a drink/food and catch up on their day.
