Our Ski School Helper is an invaluable part of our childcare and a source of support and encouragement for the youngest
children skiiing for the first time. Some of the most enthusiastic and grateful
comments from our guests are about our Ski School Helper who co-ordinates all our
children’s ski lessons. The Ski School Helper:
- Is a friendly face each morning
- Encourages the youngest and least able children skiing
- Is based in the beginner’s area - the ‘Jardin de neige’
- Co-ordinates children’s ski lessons with the Ski School
- Provides feedback and advice to parents skiing with children
- Hosts the ski presentation on Friday.
The Ski School Helper will ski with children in the
Huskies and Powder Adventurers on their
ski guiding afternoons.
The Ski School Helper will also meet children and parents on the first evening and during
the week will discuss with instructors how each child is
progressing and report back
Although Ski School Helpers are not teachers and will not ski with all children skiing with Family Ski they are a familiar face each morning and can help
resolve any issues which may arise during the week. Their support is so important
that their day off is covered by another member of the team.
The Ski School Helper stays with the youngest children skiing to help them get the most out
of their first experience on snow. Whether it is telling jokes before the lesson,
blowing a runny nose or just giving them an encouraging smile the Ski School Helper
can play an important part in children’s first ski holiday.
The Ski School Helper will also ski with the Huskies and Powder Adventurers on their
ski afternoons guided by the ESF’s English speaking instructors.
During their last morning lesson most children will have a ski test and later
that evening the Ski School Helper will host a small ceremony in the chalet to present
any badges and ski certificates.
