Typically, 4-year-old (and below) children are physically limited in their coordination, balance and cognitive ability when compared to children over the age of 5. Therefore, our kids’ lessons begin at the age of 5 and are offered to children up to the age of 14. However, in some cases, depending on the child’s development, there may be an opportunity to include your child into our kids’ lessons. Madarao Resort also offers creche services in English and Japanese.
Yes, you do. All Snow Club members are required to purchase lift passes from us and must cover each day of your lesson. You can pre-purchase passes directly from us (contact us at email@example.com) or purchase when check-in into your hotel.
Our complimentary lessons will be offered daily. Only under exceptional conditions where we are putting our guests or instructors at risk, would we look at delaying or cancelling lessons.
The individual progress of our guests will vary from person to person. You can be assured however that all our instructors are professional and certified and trained to provide lessons in a fun and safe environment to maximise yours or your child’s learning opportunities.
