Find out the Ski Schools' Family Quality Award of Trentino
All Trentino Ski Schools specialised in children skiing lessons are approved by the Quality Award which classifies them in 3 bands based on the services provided. Here you will find the best Ski Schools in each ski area and what makes them top quality schools.
The Quality Award protocol, developed in collaboration with Collegio dei Maestri di Sci del Trentino- Association of Trentino Ski Instructors- lays out a specific set of standards the schools are required to meet: for example, only schools providing a kindergarten service, meals suitable for the little ones, with at least 3 coaches professionally trained in teaching young children can be granted the Gold Quality Award. All this in addition to the criteria already required for the Silver and Bronze Quality Award: a fit for purpose “First Steps” school camp, easy-ride-on lift systems, weekly new events, a diverse lessons programme, features to inspire and facilitate the learning, mascots, vests & kits for easy identification and much more.
