FAQ: Children's Ski Lessons At Mottarone


Our friend Emma reports in from Mt. Mottarone with lots of good information about the children's ski school. Mottarone has a wonderful program, called Stella Alpina, that provides lessons, fun, and care to children over 3 years of age. Children can be watched for a full day, from 9.30 am until 4.00 pm. Or, individual lessons can be reserved. Here is some other useful information:

Children's equipment can be rented at The Squirrel Rental Shop, which is located near the top of the chairlift, just down the hill from the summit. Here's the link to their rental prices: http://www.mottaroneski.it/it/noleggio_attrezzature.php

And if you will be here for an extended period you can rent all the ski gear you will need from Sportway for 80 euro.

Children's lessons cost 30 euro each at the time of this writing and can be reserved in advance by sending an email to Mottarone at:
info@mottaroneski.it

Current information is available at: www.mottaroneski.com

Ski lift tickets vary in price. Emma tells us the weekends can be busy. Not only are they much more crowded but the prices are higher. Children under 5 years of age can ski free with a parent or guardian.

Children will often see the Mt. Mottarone mascot, Motty, on the mountain, and maybe they'll even ski with him!

Where to eat and warm up after? Of course you can try the very popular Casa della Neve near the chairlift. Warm up by the fire and with some of the famous fil da fer (that's for you, and the italian version of hot chocolate, cioccolata calda, for the kids!) But if you don't feel like a big meal to-do Emma suggests the Bar Alpi, which is situated at the bottom of Baby 1, next to The Squirrel Rental Shop. She recommends their light lunches and panini, and if it is one of those warm sunny skiing days you can enjoy your break on their outdoor tables.

We have spoken often of Mt. Mottarone and all its attractions; if you search the posts tagged winter, or search for Mottarone in the search box, you'll find more information and links. I'm hoping that this post will get you started on a family day at Mottarone, and remind you again what a fun, not-to-be-missed place it is.
