CHILDREN GROUP SKING OR SNOWBOARD LESSONS

YOUR CHILD’S DAY

Your child will spend the day with their instructor and group sliding, exploring, laughing, learning and playing.

Children are grouped with similar ages and ability changes may be made to the level your child is in depending on the ability and speed of the children skiing/snowboarding that day.

Please be aware that we try to operate “nut free” environment so we ask that you do not pack any nut products should you choose to pack your own lunch or snack.

If you choose to add the hot lunch option, it consists of a hotdog, fries and pop.

Your child will eat lunch with the kids in their group while a lunch monitor oversees the room.

Actual time on snow will vary depending on weather conditions the groups ability and stamina. Some groups will take a quick 30 minute lunch with no breaks and others, usually those who are at the early stages of learning to slide on snow and those groups with younger children, will take more frequent breaks throughout the day to rest and recuperate.

Keep in mind that children learn at different rates and that the child’s overall enjoyment of their time at Loch Lomond is most important.
