Teaching Children

Teaching Children to Ski  and Snowboard can be a challenging process. Children tend to have a much shorter attention span than adults.

This can be difficult after a short while on the slope as it may start becoming more and more difficult to relay information over to the children.

This can cause issues as they need to understand how to stay safe whilst learning to Ski or Snowboard.

Falling over and not getting techniques right within the first few goes can upset children, meaning you have to give them support, encouragement and praise all the time to keep them involved with the lessons and feeling confident with their progress.

Ski / Snowboard lessons are a great way to boost confidence for those children who lack is as it allows them to pick up new skills and independence.

It is also important to have breaks, kids love having fun and will want the chance to play in the snow as well as having a drink and snack to keep them fueled for the day.

They are much smaller of course and vulnerable to the cold so make sure they have the correct Clothing and Equipment to keep them warm and safe for a long day on the slopes !

Sports Equipment Insurance for a Ski Instructor

A pair of skis and a pair of ski poles are needed to be a Ski Instructor. The skis need to be well maintained to assure good sliding, while the poles are essential for the skiers to keep their balance. Additional equipment includes ski clothing, a helmet and ski boots.

We have partnered with a HB Insurance who can provide cover for your Ski Equipment, in transit, storage and whilst being used.


With Skiing Equipment cover starting from £61 and covering anything from £2,000 to £10,000, there is a policy to suit.
