Do your research on on-mountain ski and day care programs and kids’ ski lessons in your area, depending on your child’s age. Some ski resorts offer lesson packages with lift tickets and rentals, and sometimes very young children can ski for free. Depending on your expectations and budget, investing in a ski lesson program often pays off. Instructors are experts who know how to teach kids how to ski while keeping them in their comfort zone and making sure they're have fun. Also, learning how to ski with a peer group is an enjoyable and motivating experience for many children.
