Here are some essential safety rules for the smooth running of your day on the ski slopes:

  • Rent equipment adapted to the level of practice and the size of your child
  • It is strongly recommended for children to wear a ski helmet as they have no awareness of the danger.
  • Remember to dress your child well with warm and waterproof clothing, as well as take a change of clothes (socks and gloves in particular).
  • Always accompany your child on the slopes, paths and play areas and choose descents adapted to his level of practice.
  • Don't force your child to ski if he doesn't feel like it.
  • Remember to put on sunscreen and lip stick to protect yourself from the harsh rays of the sun on the snow.
  • Avoid skiing with a baby, either on your back or on your stomach, because in the event of a fall, you could seriously injure him. In addition, baby could be too cold.
  • Children are quickly tired from the physical effort and the cold, so it is important to take the time to take breaks in the many restaurants at altitude. It will also be an opportunity to share a delicious hot chocolate and to know their feelings about their first sensations of sliding!
