Ski resorts offer numerous options for skiing with children. At the same time as they learn, they have a great time with other children under the expert guidance of professional instructors. In Grandvalira you’ll find ski schools and snow gardens adapted to their level in almost all sectors, so that they can get started in this world or improve their technique.
First contact with the snow
For children from 3 to 6 years old, you will find snow gardens in the sectors of Grau Roig, Soldeu, Pas de la Casa, Canillo, El Tarter and Encamp. Here they will be able to discover the world of skiing or snowboarding, the latter only available in Pas de la Casa.
They start with an adaptation to the environment class and the course usually lasts about two hours in the snow garden itself. The rest of the time is spent playing in the snow or indoors. You can choose between a full day or half day.
Ski circuits for skiing with children
Grandvalira has the Kid Program, programmes and circuits for children from 3 to 11 years old with different themes. They combine skiing with other activities such as snowshoeing, igloo building, mini tobogganing or mini snowmobiles, among others, depending on the sector where the classes are held.
Your children will learn skiing techniques with specialised instructors together with other children of their level and age. They last all day and you can choose from 1 to 5 days (you will have to take into account the starting days of the classes as each sector has a different programme).
The resort also offers Top Class Kids from 3 years old, a totally personalised and adapted programme.
Group classes for children
Group ski lessons for 6 to 11 year olds are divided by level and can be either skiing or snowboarding. The classes are 3 hours long and the minimum is 2 days and up to 5 days. They can be booked in all sectors, except for snow lessons for children, which are only available in the Soldeu, El Tarter and Canillo sectors. Please note that this season Grandvalira has introduced a one-day course for beginners: this is a 3-hour course exclusively for children who are just starting out in the world of skiing and is available in the Soldeu and El Tarter sectors.
Please note that the ski pass and equipment are not included in the price of the ski schools.
Childcare on the slopes for children from 1 year old
If you come with children from 1 year old, you can continue to enjoy your favourite sport while they stay in the Grandvalira kindergartens. They are open every day of the season from 9am to 4.30pm. In the nurseries, children do not have lessons. They are indoors or playing in the snow with monitors. In Grau Roig the nursery welcomes children from 1 to 5 years old and in Canillo, El Tarter and Soldeu, there are kindergartens for children from 2 to 5 years old. Pas de la Casa, Encamp and Peretol do not have kindergartens.
