your child’s first ski les­son

Young Parents (Singapore) - - RECIPES -

Is Ju­nior new to ski­ing? Karin Rosler, head of mar­ket­ing, ho­tels, at Rocks Re­sort, shares four tips to make his first les­son a suc­cess.

MAKE SURE HE’S DRESSED RIGHT

Your kid should wear warm, prac­ti­cal cloth­ing, and snug but com­fort­able, good-qual­ity ski boots. And don’t for­get to ap­ply a high-SPF sun­block on his face and hands.

SELECT THE RIGHTSIZED GEAR

His skis should be the right size – his in­struc­tor will be able to help him select the best pair. Hel­mets and gog­gles are also rec­om­mended – make sure that these are de­signed for skiers.

RE­MIND HIM TO HAVE FUN

Fall­ing – usu­ally more than once – is to be ex­pected. All that mat­ters is that he picks him­self up and en­joys the ac­tiv­ity.

KNOW WHAT A BA­SIC LES­SON EN­TAILS

He will first learn to get used to be­ing on skis, be­fore learn­ing how to ride and brake in the snow.

Once he’s mas­tered these skills, he will learn how to make turns, and then at­tempt to make his first de­scent in a safe area of the moun­tain.
