ESF – LE PETIT BOARDER: Snowboarding lessons for children aged 4-7

An introduction to snowboarding for children aged 4-7 in La Rosière Centre and Les Eucherts.

It’s the Snowboard generation!
Today, there are around 5 million snowboarders across the globe so it’s no surprise that young kids are keen to get in on the act.

Equipment adapted to suit youngsters:
All junior snowboarding equipment (board, boots, helmet) is perfectly suited to young children:

. Board:
Snowboards are now slightly concave along their length, which prevents the rider from catching their edge and makes turning much easier, and therefore quicker to master.
Snowboards for young children are equipped with a leash, which the instructor or parent holds in their hand to help the child manage their speed.
Snowboarding equipment has greatly evolved, making it much easier for beginner riders to turn. "Le Petit Boarder" is a great way for your children to get a taste for snowboarding and improve their balance in a fun and relaxed environment!

. Boots and helmet, just like freestylers!
Everyone who is using the slopes is strongly advised to wear a helmet, and even more so when snowboarding. Beginners fall over a lot, as it is not easy sliding along with both feet tied to the same board!
A helmet is now rented out automatically with every snowboard.

. a superhero!
At altitude, even when it’s cloudy, the sun’s UV rays are less filtered by the atmosphere and the snow reflects 85% of these rays, which is 4 times more than water and 80 times more than grass!
It is therefore essential that you protect your eyes, preferably with goggles. Goggles have the added bonus of being held in place by your helmet, which is useful when snowboarding as you're constantly on the move.

. What to ask for in your chosen hire shop:
. Top quality equipment, so that your child can snowboard in safety
. A fun design that your kids will love!
