Six winter sports destinations (Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis and Saalfelden Leogang, Aletsch Arena and Grindelwald, Alta-Badia and Madonna di Campiglio) are pulling together to launch a pilot project in the coming winter of 2023 / 24!
"Finding the skiers of tomorrow and winning them over for skiing" is the motto of the pilot project "KIDS ON SKI". The aim of this initiative is to get absolute ski beginners between the ages of 3 and 5 (children who are not of school age) excited about skiing.
The kick-off will be in 2023/24 when each of the six destinations will offer around 200 children the opportunity to attend free ski courses, including equipment and ski pass, and to stay in exclusive hotels. The long-term goal of the project is to get up to 1000 children per destination onto the slopes, which in turn would mean a total of 50,000 children per winter at 50 top ski areas in the Alpine region. This initiative has the potential to sustainably improve the situation for junior skiers and enables young children to discover the joy of skiing at an early age.
KIDS ON SKI is free of charge and made possible by ski schools and sponsoring partners.
