* Some ski areas also offer special lessons for teens, ages 15-17 who may learn better with their own age group rather than with adults.
* Group lessons for children are set up by age and ability and are for a full day.
* Lessons for 3 year olds usually involve snow play, walking on skis, trying the magic carpet, and basic instruction.
* Lessons for 4 years of age: At this age, some children are ready for the slopes and lifts, some may need to stay with the more basic instruction. The age to start children in regular group lessons varies depending on the size and strength of the child and their ability to work within a group setting.
* Children’s group lessons are sold as a package including lesson, lift ticket, lunch, equipment and helmet – most ski areas require the wearing of a helmet for children’s lessons.
* It is also possible to keep renting the equipment for additional days after the child has finished their lessons and is venturing out onto the slopes with family members.
* At the end of each lesson your child’s instructor will give you a report on their progress and tell you what level they have reached.

* Children are also able to take a Private or Semi-Private lesson, but these do not come as a package and require the added purchase of ski & snowboard rentals and lift tickets.
