Example: A family of four is having a family lesson with our school. The parents have been skiing before, but it was a long time ago. The 2 kids, aged 8 and 6 are first timers.
First of all the teacher will take them to the nursery area to to get the kids going. At the same time the parents will be there and the instructor will give them exercises to remember the basics. Meanwhile they can enjoy watching their kids doing their first snow plough.
Once things start rollin and the kids are controlling, the teacher might take one of the parents up in the chair to be on a bigger hill and improve turns and control. In the mean time, the kids might have a little break, or continuing practicing, with the other parent. Afterwards, if the instructor see the other parent fit, she or he might take him/her on a solo run as well. Once all are back together it’s likely the parents need a few minutes break and the instructor is likely to take the kids for a solo run. Eventually, the whole family will be able to go to the chair together with the instructor and they will all make a faster progress.
* This is only an example. Every lesson will be designed individually, depending of ages, skills and number of people in the group.
