Ski Taster Package

Full care for children

An opportunity for guests who have never skied before to try the wonderful world of skiing. Conditions are ideal for learning to ski with empty slopes and friendly English speaking instructors. Don’t worry, you don’t necessarily have to bring separate ski gear with you as many guests ski in their included all-in-one thermal suits.

However, we would recommend bringing a pair of ski socks with you if you plan to try skiing to make sure your feet are comfortable. But beware, you may enjoy yourself so much that you will want to return to experience one of our 7 night holidays.
