  • In ski school counter, you have the last chance to discuss the skiing level of your child with the staff to avoid the wrong inclusion of a child in a wrong group.
  • Upon payment, you will receive a card with the information about the meeting point (number of flag) with the instructor, a vest for your child with a name tag and a skiing diary.
  • Please prepare your child for the lesson (be ready 5 minutes before the start of the lesson):
    • Go to the toilet with little children.
    • Put the package of tissues in their pocket.
    • Dress children appropriately according to the current weather conditions.

  • You will meet your instructor and the other group members 3 minutes before the start of the lesson. The meeting point is between the main parking and Fox Park at the flag number written on your card from the counter.
  • If you are still unsure about the child's skiing level, talk to the instructor.
  • The instructor will wait with you until the last participants of the group course arrive but maximum of 5 minutes after the beginning of the course. He will tell you where the lesson will be held, where and when you will meet after the lesson.

The first group lesson

  • Each lesson begins with a warming up and stretching with the instructor or a mascot “Fox” in the Fox Park (area for beginners equipped with magic carpets).
  • In the case of large groups, the group starts at the beginning together and divides into smaller sub-groups according to the current level during the first two-hour lesson.
  • Beginners learn the first steps on the skis, downhill ride, safe stopping or an easy slalom.
  • Advanced skiers will show their skills to the instructor. If they can stop and know the basics of the turning, they can go to the slope.
  • During lessons, smaller groups are created or the children can be reassigned to another group based on their skills, so you need to remember the instructor name and the flag number at the end of the lesson where you will meet for the next lesson.
  • The instructor terminates the lesson in Foxpark or at the meeting point, where it has started. It is necessary to be there in time so that the instructor and the children do not have to wait.
  • In case you do not like the level of the group, talk to the instructor immediately.
  • The instructor evaluates the first lesson, tells you the meeting point for another lesson and informs you about the need for ski passes or ski poles for the next lesson.

Next lessons

  • Further lessons continue with the same composition of the group that formed after the first day.
  • Beginners after mastering stopping and the basics of turning can leave the Fox Park and go down the easy blue slope. In this time, it is needed to have a purchased ski pass.
  • In case that the lesson takes place on the slope, the easy blue slope (towards the lake) is used first. It connects smoothly to our private ski slope where there is plenty of room for training. Once the blue slope is safely managed, the other side of the area is used where the slopes are steeper, suitable for advanced skiers.
  • Every Thursday, the children compete in a race. In the afternoon, there is a ceremonial announcement of the winners and the distribution of the diplomas to all participants.

After teaching

  • Extend the lesson to other days. Your child will continue in the same group with the same instructor.
  • Return the vest back to the counter.

Lessons language

Our instructors can speak multiple foreign languages; however, we cannot guarantee the mother language of each client in the group. We usually assign instructors able to speak the mother language to the groups of youngest children. Older children and adults have lessons with instructors, who can speak English and know the basic phrases and commands in the language of the client. Advantage of the group lesson is that you or your children can observe others and imitate them or one of the clients can be a translator for the rest of the group.

  • Czech – native language of our instructors,
  • English – most of the instructors can speak fluent English,
  • German – a few instructors can speak fluent German. Some instructors know the main orders needed for teaching in German.
  • Dutch – fluent speaking instructors are very rare and we assign them to the groups of youngest children. Many instructors know the main Dutch orders and use them in combination with English or German.
  • Russian – Russian speaking instructors are very rare, German or English is mainly used for Russian speaking clients.
