Does my child need a helmet for the course?

We strongly advise to wear a helmet for skiing and snowboarding. We recommend good goggles or sunglasses as well as sunscreen.

Children don't need sticks at the beginning. From class Red League on, the children ride with ski poles.

Sunglasses and sunscreen?

We recommend that you only enjoy yourself on slopes and cross-country ski runs with good ski or sunglasses and the appropriate sunscreen (high protection factor for the mountains). Do not forget to put on a warming head protection (e.g. helmet).
