MY TIPS "FAMILY HOLIDAY AND GOOD TIMES IN THE SNOW"
Some tips to maximize the pleasure of these intense moments in the resort:
• Let them ski on their own
Autonomous on the slopes during lessons, your budding skiers will be delighted to show you what they can do and what they have learned. Allow some time after the ski lesson or during the day to let them show you their progress. With confidence, they will be more at ease each day and will be able to reveal the champion within them.
• Listen to them and adapt your days according to their desires.
In sport, as in all areas of life, failure can help but it can also completely block progress. So if you want your child to succeed, offer them courses that are adapted to what they can do! He will challenge himself during the ski lessons, but with you he needs to feel confident and accompanied in a benevolent way. And if there are days when he dreams of sledding, trying cross-country skiing or going to the ice rink, say yes! He will work on other aspects of skiing, which will also be useful when skiing, and you will have a great time with your family.
• He is comfortable on his skis and wants to have fun, let's go for some fun skiing!
Your little skier has mastered the basics of skiing and the instructor at the school tells you he can do more? The paths and slopes will become your playgrounds. Let's go for the discovery of new sliding sensations, and always more fun! After all, if you like skiing, it's because you enjoy it, and your child is no exception; he learns all the more easily if he has fun in the snow.
• For their safety, watch out for people on the slopes!
Did you know that your little ones have a different sense of danger than you do? They learn the right reflexes during the lessons but if you are skiing with them you must always be alert. For more safety, you can guide them: position yourself in front of them and impose a trajectory, because left to themselves they will go straight down.
• Teach them to respect priorities on the ski slopes
Like the road, the slopes have their rules of conduct: give priority to the downhill skier (below), look before you go when you are stopped, and always keep control of your speed. Good practices that your little champions will soon master...
• Take the time to take breaks, you are on a snow holiday after all!
Hot chocolate, pancakes, scenery... any excuse will do to let your little champions' legs catch their breath, and yours too. And if the weather is not good or if your little skiers are tired, take the time to enjoy your holiday. You are in the mountains, the snow is here, you are with your family, it's time to create memories together!
