Ski group lessons children in Méribel are group lessons limited to 6 children. The medal ceremony takes place on Friday.
Two solutions, ski group lessons for children or private lessons for children in Méribel. At Prosneige, children, we love it. That’s why we want to offer children’s group lessons that meet your children’s needs as best as possible, especially for small groups. Only one objective: to see them smile on the slopes! We have chosen to limit our ski groups in Méribel to a maximum of 6 children. The instructors, all state-qualified and continuously trained, have more time to take care of each child and develop a much more qualitative relationship with each of them. The children during the ski lessons get along better and are much more attentive to the ski instructor’s advice. All the advantages of group lessons are brought together while avoiding the disadvantages: emulation, human relations, encounters, pleasure; no loss of time, no different levels, no misunderstanding, never too far from the instructor. Playful and safe learning in your language in a very small group. We listen to the children, and we always reserve the possibility of changing them from one group to another according to their progress during the week. We don’t want to slow down a child and deprive them of fun, just as we don’t want to push a child out of their comfort zone. He loses confidence, backs off and quickly degrades himself technically, which hinders his progress.
We take children on ski lessons in Meribel from 3 years old, from beginner to advanced. We have a kindergarten at the top of the Rhodos gondola lift, at the start of the Meribel Valley beginners’ area. So, as soon as the child has mastered snowploughing, he or she leaves the garden immediately and goes sliding down the slopes. All our ski lessons start at 9am in the morning in order to leave before the other ski schools and thus avoid the morning “traffic jams”. It is therefore essential that the children are on time for their ski lesson in the morning. We can completely help you with the organisation, and advise you to make this step easier with the equipment. Please do not hesitate to ask us for advice. Ski lessons end at noon. So the children ski 3 hours in the morning. The ski instructor will take some time to give you a feedback on their morning. In the afternoon, ski lessons start at 2pm and finish at 5pm. It is important that the children have had a real meal break with a good lunch and that they wear dry and warm clothes in order to enjoy their whole afternoon.
The children take a break in the morning. Skiing, the mountains, the snow, the excitement, the physical effort, requires a lot of energy from them. It is important to recharge the batteries to be able to enjoy the 3 hours of ski lessons. So slip a little snack in their pocket. We take care of giving them a drink. If it’s cold or bad weather, the resort has created some very nice bagless rooms. We stop in these rooms for our break. There are also toilets. If the weather is good, we take advantage of the areas created by the ski lifts outside. These areas are protected from the flow of skiers and are often animated for the pleasure of the youngest.
At the beginning of the children’s group lessons in Méribel, for their safety, we put a bib on the back of each child. Several advantages, they are very quickly identifiable by the ski instructor, they are much more visible on the ski area, and if they get lost, the ski lift agents warn us right away and we can quickly get them back. We leave the bib with the child for the whole week, try to think about taking it in the morning. Again, it’s important for their safety. You will give it back to us at the end of his week of group lessons.
The aim is to please the children and obviously to make them progress technically and evolve in complete safety on the ski area. We apply a pedagogy during our ski lessons that we continually develop according to the developments of the equipment, the ski slopes and the ski lifts. There are real technical work times every day which are always fun. The technical input is done in small touches every day, a lot by mimicry and also by showing the children that they need to apply these tips if they want to be able to have even more fun. Our levels have the equivalences with all the other ski schools in Méribel. If you don’t know in which level to register children for ski lessons, ask us, we will help you. At the end of the week, we organise a medal ceremony in show mode with a surprise guest that the children love. This takes place every Friday evening in front of the shop after the lessons at 5.15 pm. It’s a time to celebrate, to value the children and to meet the instructors. It is often a beautiful souvenir photo.
We do not organise tests on the last day of the children’s group ski lessons, we prefer to make the children ski rather than make them wait. Our ski instructors spend the week with them, they know if they have the technical level to go above or not. We don’t want to stress the children, they are on holiday and should enjoy it. The medal should not be an end in itself but rather a souvenir gift. You will get a passport with the pedagogical elements that the child knows how to achieve. We can also advise you which slopes you can take together after the ski lessons in the Méribel area. It is important not to put your child in difficulty by taking slopes too difficult for him and to make him lose the confidence he will have acquired with his ski instructor during his ski lessons in Méribel.
We babysit your children between 12h and 14h, take them to lunch and then play. We have lunch at Le Marius, restaurant of the 4* hotel Le Tremplin next to our meeting point. The chef works only with fresh products and different menus every day. A dish, a dessert and a drink and of course the possibility to change if the child doesn’t like the menu of the day. After the meal, the children play outside or inside depending on the weather.
The meeting point for ski group lessons children is at La Chaudanne, on the snow front of Méribel, in front of the Piou Pious kindergarten. You can come on foot or by sliding. You will easily recognize us: big green flames with the level of the ski lessons, ski instructors in green and navy blue.
For all children group lessons in Méribel, the ski pass is essential whatever the level of your child. We immediately take the ski lifts of the ski area of Méribel. Your child under 5 years old, great, it’s free. Go to the ski lift ticket office with a proof of age, and take him a Vallée de Méribel ski pass. He is under 13 years old and is registered in a lower level than the 2nd ski, then you can benefit from our preferential rate on the Vallée de Méribel 5 or 6 days ski pass. Almost 30% discount. Ask us. We will prepare it for you and bring it to the start of the lessons on the first day. He is 13 years old and over, choose a Vallée de Méribel ski pass. He will be able to benefit from all the infrastructures of the Vallée de Méribel whatever his level. It would be a pity to deprive him of it. For all the children whose level is superior or equal to the 3rd ski, we advise to take the 3 Vallées ski pass, the biggest ski area in the world. It is important that all the children have the same ski pass so as not to penalize them. We may ask you to take an extension once a week to take advantage of the 3 Vallées ski area. Our instructors will ask you the day before. There is no obligation of course.
