Learning to ski at Ski Juwel

They know exactly what methods to use to teach children how to ski..

Special children’s areas ensure that the lessons are also a lot of fun. The best example of this is the JUPPI-DO children’s area, where young skiing fans learn to ski with the help of conveyor belts, in obstacle courses and on various special trails.
