Ski Course

PORG International School Ski Course 2020

Monday 27 January to Wednesday 29 January 2020

The ski course will take place at Skalka Family Park, the same as the last two years. Skalka Family Park is one of the wonderful facilities in and around Ostrava that makes this city such an ideal location for our International School.

As we get nearer the date, we will send out an e-mail with details about cost, equipment rental and times. There will be several teachers who are qualified ski instructors to lead the different groups and teachers who are not qualified will be on hand (but not on skis!) to help out.

Transport will be by bus to and from the school. We will ski in the morning and then return to the school for lunch.

As snow is essential for good skiing, the course may be cancelled if the weather is too warm for snow.

For those who have not been to Skalka Family Park before, it is an ideal venue for a children’s ski course. The pistes are divided so that skiers of different abilities have a safe space to develop their skills. Absolute beginners will be on the nursery slope, while intermediate and advanced children will have the use of the ski lift to the top of the hill.

There is a warm building for changing and snack breaks, as well as a shop selling refreshments at the foot of the piste.
