Reviews from our customers

Ana

The staff are great! My 3 year old daughter wasn't quite sure but they managed to engage her and she had a great time! The panda at the end was a bonus that she talks about a lot!

Andreas

After 5 days, we had a 3 year old going down the mountains with us! Thank you!

Ksenia

Thank you very much to the panda club team! It was an incredible 5 days for my daughter. From the first day we saw a great progress in skiing. Now we can take her to the mountains. The organisation, coaching and location - great! I can't wait to be back next year! Thank you so much!
