Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Instructors in Arc 1800 for young children

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
We're looking for some private lessons for our 3 year old. He's very small for his age but quite coordinated, can ride a pedal bike without stabilisers and does want to ski so we'd like to help him do that (even though he's convinced that once he can stop and turn he can ski everything on the mountain with Mummy and Daddy - hmmm)!

We've been taking him out in the snow on gentle slopes (e.g. by Le Lodge at Mille 8 ) and he's quite happy playing in the snow and sliding in a straight line. He's pretty tired out (understandably) after about 30 minutes so we haven't been keen to put him in ski school - instead he's been with a shared nanny while we ski and then we've been taking him out in the late afternoon.

However it might be nice for him to have some input from someone who isn't Mum or Dad as we're not used to teaching someone to ski. We're not expecting him to be able to do anything significant, but equally he is desperate to be able to stop and turn on his own, but whatever we're doing doesn't seem to be encouraging that. He's seen people having lessons and is interested in there being a skiing "teacher". If anyone can recommend an instructor who could take our son (and us) for a short lesson that would be great. Alternatively if you have any good ideas of games that might help encourage turning/stopping that would also be really helpful.
