And if you think how to make winter rest interesting to the child - a lodge where - nibud in the Alps very much will approach: there will be both mountain skiing, and the pool, and the ice town, and the sledge, and snowmen.

Some keen parents try to put children on skis in 2 years. And it is not unsuccessful - if it is pleasant to the child, he will move down from educational hills. Of course, it is more likely about joint game, accustoming to skis.

A here in 4 years the child can already fully master this sport - with the parent, the trainer or in group. The equipment of the small sizes is both in shops, and in rental centers. It is the most convenient to teach children of such age in the European resorts - they are equipped far better than domestic.
