Snoworks junior ski camps for kids that are too cool for ski school

Ski course company Snoworks, that specialises in all mountain skiing, has launched a new programme for kids that are already proficient skiers and want something that goes beyond the traditional ski school class.

The five day Snoworks courses take place over the two weeks of the Easter school holidays (week commencing March 25 and April 1) and are open to kids between 12 and 16, based in either Tignes or Val d’Isère.

During the week, kids will be taught a variety of skills that will help them deal with all mountain terrain, including off-piste ‘Freeride’ ski techniques, mogul skiing, snow park skills, steep terrain skiing and mountain safety skills and avalanche awareness.

The sessions run all day long and Snoworks staff provide supervision at lunchtime.

Kids will need to already be capable of tackling a black run and be very confident on all blue and red slopes.

Director of Snoworks Ski Courses, Lee Townend, said: “Kids are increasingly looking to learn skills that take them to a new level on and off the pistes and away from the traditional ski school class where they might follow a group down the mountain. We are finding that kids between the ages of 12 and 16 are getting more adventurous, but their parents want them to be in a safe and controlled environment. Our Shred Course offers a great balance of fun and learning for aspirational freeskiers on holiday over the Easter holidays.”

Dates: March 25 and April 1, 2024.

Courses run for five full days, Monday to Friday, with a maximum of 8 juniors in a group and one fully qualified instructor. The courses are based in Tignes but participants can also join if they are staying in Val d’Isère.

Cost: £750pp
