I wouldn't waste my money again on the ski school. We enrolled our 4 year old for a 3 hour group lesson. After less than 40 minutes (most of which was standing around given they are only beginners) they had a 40 minute rest break. According to the instructor they stopped for a drink and he asked the kids if they wanted to colour in - so that is what they did for the next 40 minutes in the wet weather shed - even though it was a beautiful sunny day. I'm all for giving the kids short rest breaks but this was a joke. Needless to say she didn't learn much skiing....
