Our Ski Beginner lessons are the perfect starting point to get a feel for the slopes. The purpose of the Beginner Series is to take complete beginners up to the standard that they can control their speed, do basic turns and use the ski lifts.
You will be in safe hands with our friendly, fully-qualified instructors, who will help you build a solid foundation of skiing skills to enable you to enjoy your first holiday. These classes start on our new Snowflex slopes (a smooth and easy skiing surface) with user friendly stand-on Travellator lifts.
There are 4 classes in the Beginner Series, and to get the most from your skiing experience we recommend that clients enrol for the full series. By the end of the four classes skiers will have progressed to our intermediate slope and start to use regular button ski lifts. All classes are an hour and a half each. It is possible to book just one class or preferably the full series.
What you will learn
This series will equip beginners with the basic skills to permit confident and controlled use of the easier ski slopes in the resort. The classes include introduction to ski equipment, manoeuvrability, controlled descent and basic turning and stopping. All equipment and techniques are exactly the same as you will experience on snow.
Classes in the beginner series are run on most nights of the week as well as weekends. We also run intensive 1 day Saturday classes for those who would like to complete the series in a shorter timeframe.
All equipment is provided. We provide skis and snowboards, boots and poles for classes and practice sessions at no extra cost. Just bring warm clothes, a pair of gloves and a sense of adventure.
