Weekly Programmes for Kids

Whether it is your child’s first time on the snow or they are a competitive cross-country racer, the Snow Farm kids programmes are the perfect way for your child to have a ton of fun, make friends, and develop new skills.

Learning to cross country ski opens up a whole new side to skiing; one that promotes a healthy lifestyle, respect for the alpine environment and freedom from the ski lifts. We guarantee your kids will look forward to every session and will quickly become confident skiers ready to explore the trails at the Snow Farm.
