About The Youths
Taking the “school” out of ski school!
Marmalade’s Youth groups are aimed specifically at children, kids, teenagers and young adults who have already achieved the foundations of good skiing via the traditional ski school route but are keen to add an extra layer of zest to their skiing ability.
Introducing an exhilarating week of skiing which offers the chance to progress to a level beyond that of which normal ski schools can go. On the piste, off the piste, bumps, couloirs and into the snow park. All delivered in a safe and controlled environment.
These weeks are not just fun filled skiing weeks – we take development seriously. Building on existing skills, drills, terrain and snow varieties which results in developing ability, understanding and mountain awareness.
4 hours a day (09.15 to 13.15) Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Thursday is a full day with lunch included. Ages 10 and up.

The small print – please note we need a minimum of 3 to make these groups run. We will endeavor to run Youths during main UK school holiday periods and out of those periods upon demand. Please make sure anyone signed up for these groups is of the required level.
