How old does a child have to be to start learning to ski?
It is known, the sooner we start learning the better, but without exaggeration. In order to start his adventure with skis, the child must walk, run and jump on his own. The optimal moment from the point of view of physical development of the toddler to start learning to ski is 4-5 years old. A child of this age is fit and communicative enough to be ready for the first steps on skis.Of course, this is not the rule. We have a lot of small skiers at the age of 3 who are doing very well, but that's an individual thing. You can always try to make an appointment with an instructor for half an hour. After this time, the instructor will be able to determine whether the child is ready to start school. The main thing is not to force the child to learn to ski, the toddler must express his own desire. It is worth trying to put on your child's shoes, skis and helmet beforehand, so that they get used to it. We can even let him come skiing on the carpet at home. Such taming of the child with equipment greatly facilitates the first moments on the slopes. Before you start your skiing adventure, we should take your little one to the slopes and show how others are playing and learning
