Finding the right ski school can be a mission for families especially when kids and adults are at different ability levels and ages. Exclusively for Powder Byrne clients, they will organize it all alongside their expert programmes and instructors. Popular with adult beginners and families looking to learn to ski together, they have their Learn To Ski In Style Programme. The lessons are tailored to your schedule, your family, and your time and can even accommodate during high-season. For kids only, they have a few unique programmes. For young skiers ages 3-4 years old, the Yeti Primer will have them safely on the slopes in no-time. For skiers ages 4-9, the Yeti programme offers fun, top-level instruction, and one of the best instructor to student ratios on the mountain. SnoZone Beginners targets the older kids who want to be sure they are not in a kiddy class - its age and skill appropriate for learning. For more experienced kids in the same age bracket, SnoZone is the place to learn and develop their skills. Their winter ski academies for teenagers cover a wide variety of ski disciplines from racing, to off-piste, freestyle, to on piste technique. They even also offer a complimentary ski guiding service for teenagers who no longer wish to ski with mum and dad. Adult ski lessons and complimentary ski guiding are also available for mum and dad too!
