1st Test ESF Level.
Inside Club Piou Piou!

With this level your child will learn to do the following:
  • Put their own boots and skis on. 
  • Use the ski lift for the first time
  • Control their speed and make turns reproducing the movement of different types of skis on their feet. The movements will be varied but almost on flat beginner slopes.
  • They will face parallel to the slope and be able to stop by a snowplough turn.

In Summary:
Your child will learn how to do many things alone:
• use the lifts, control my speed, sliding snowplough, making turns and stopping. 

They will even be able to follow you (parents) on green slopes.
