Lantern Thredbo Apartments offer tips for families intending to ski or snow board in light of Thredbo's new changes to child pricing, and accommodation specials for the winter season.
Lantern Thredbo Apartments owner Ian Foster encourages parents to ease up on the drills and technique and make skiing a fun experience for kids.
"Snow sports are one of very few activities the whole family can do together from a young age," says Ian "Provided Mum or Dad don't turn kids off by trying to teach them to ski or snowboard for extended periods or push too hard on technique. Kids learn by having fun, not doing drills. What works for an adult lesson doesn't work for kids so when a parent has a lesson and tries to pass that lesson on to kids it almost always backfires."
He suggests if you don't feel up to the task of teaching your kids then Thredbo Ski Resort's 'Snow Sports School' has qualified instructors to start your kids skiing and snowboarding.
There are extensive categories of instruction at Thredbo Snow Sports School including private lessons for 3-6 year olds, 7-14 year old lessons, 7-17 year old lessons or group lessons tailor made for teens. The teen lessons extend to races, mini-world cup events, flare run participation and acquisition of a Skills Passport to keep track of improvement.
