Minimum age for ski school Crystal Italy?

Hi,

Anyone know if you can get the group ski lessons in Italy at 3 years? Looking at Claviere in particular. I know our son was in the French Piou Piou club at 3, but thinking of going with another family with a 3 year old this year and trying to decide where to go. Our main thoughts at this time are Claviere for a week or a drive to Montchavin at Easter for the 2 weeks.

In france i think Crystal used to have a minimum age that was higher than that imposed by the ski school. You may have to book direct with ski school

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Thanks.

I think I better phone Crystal because its to help with decisions, and although we could book direct, we wanted to use the childcare with Crystal in Claviere with the ski lessons, whereas if we booked lessons direct, the care would be disjointed. It's doable, just need all the suggestions so we are ready to discuss with our friends. Our son is 8 and will just ski with us.

Our kids started early with the Selva Ski School. 3yo is a tad early for formal ski lessons IMO. Mucking about on snow with childminders is about standard at 3. Some are ready to go in their late 3s.

The Esprit Spritelets scheme works well. It would be a combination of snow play and crèche based activities at that age.

They will want to give it a go with the wee one, she'll be 3 and 7 months, our boy started at much the same age and was doing great on our ski holiday. They wouldn't push her into something she wasn't enjoying.

I was merely referring to regular 3 year olds, not the exceptional variety. wink

Yeah I know, that's what I mean, they will give it a go, in fact they will probably do some snowdome lessons beforehand, but if she wasn't keen on holiday I know they would change the game plan. Just tying to figure what holiday to go for with the two we have in mind. So want to find out the Crystal age for their childcare with ski lessons. We've been to claviere a few times, and although we've not used the childcare particularly, it gets great reviews, and having seen it, it's a great set up I think.

They may be thinking a totally different idea to me, I just want to have some facts for our ideas ready.

Speak to Crystal, they will know the Ski School's policy in which ever resort you choose.

In my experience (4 kids started from toddlers, one of whom is now an instructor teaching mainly kids in Switzerland), at 3yo some are ready to go, most are not physically strong enough and when they get tired, it all goes downhill. wink

One of our boy's pelted whole mountains at 4yo, so it's down to the individual child as to how they'll cope.
