About the Experience

Our dedicated team of Alpine Star Instructors are experts at keeping the tuition fun & interactive.

We run two different groups each session based on age, for a variety of ability levels.

The Penguins Ages 5 – 7

Alpine Juniors Ages 8 – 12

The lesson program follows the snow life awards. Its great fun for the kids to progress through the groups as they develop their technique & understanding.

The penguins groups start at the penguin’s starter lesson and work their way through the program while the older alpine juniors start the program at level 1.

Each set consists of 6 x 1 hour lessons with a maximum of 10 pupils per lesson and costs £55
