Our advice to parents

Even if in the heart of the village the weather seems pleasant, the weather changes quickly in the mountains, a good equipment is essential... so bring: tights, undershirt (with turtleneck), sweater or fleece, jacket, pants or wetsuit in the right size...

Even if in the heart of the village the weather seems pleasant, the weather changes quickly in the mountains, a good equipment is essential... so bring: tights, undershirt (with turtleneck), sweater or fleece, jacket, pants or wetsuit in the right size for the child (big enough to cover the ankles and wrists), sunglasses or ski mask in case of snow or rain, gloves or mittens, helmet (even if it's hot), neck protector (to be left in the pocket in case of weather change), sun cream...

Check that your children feel comfortable in their ski boots: don′t hesitate to adjust and close them at home to test them before going on the slopes.
The bottom of the suit (elastic gaiters) should cover the boot to prevent snow and water from entering (not pleasant at all!). 
Before leaving on the ski lessons, remember to check that your child has his or her lift pass with him or her (be careful about changing jackets during the trip!), a cereal bar and some tissues.
Let's not forget that this is an outdoor sporting activity, in the mountains and most of the time in the cold. The child must therefore have slept enough, must have eaten properly before the lessons, and must have gone to the bathroom!!!
