Not just for beginners and children, every skier can benefit from a lesson.
Far from the regimented days of snaking down the piste in a large group, these days there are innovative ski schools with English-speaking instructors who have diversified their offerings to include coaching clinics focussing on individual’s needs. Lessons are a real confidence booster as well as being a fun way to explore the area.
Room for improvement…
Ski schools are well-tuned to customer’s needs, so you could commit to a private session just once during the week to work on a particular area, for instance improving your carving technique or trying to lift yourself off the infamous ‘intermediate plateau’.
Try something new…
If you’re already confident on the slopes, perhaps you could try a new discipline for the first time, which is a popular thing to do towards the end of a great week.
Ever enviously watched ski or snowboard backcountry videos? For those wanting to experience the thrill of riding in deep powder, it’s a great idea to take a lesson in off piste so that you can gain the techniques specific to powder skiing in a safe environment. If you’re already accomplished as an off-piste skier or boarder but don’t have much of a clue about avalanche safety techniques then a mountain guide or off piste safety lesson could mean that you’ll be able to head off the beaten track and access powder runs you’ve dreamed of riding.
We work with New Generation, Sweet Snowsports, Oxygene, First Tracks and the ESF in La Tania. Our pre-holiday concierge can book lessons on your behalf, so please do get in touch before your holiday so that we can help you with ski school bookings.
NB: Booking well in advance of your holiday is absolutely essential in peak weeks and for children.
