Adult & Junior Ski Lessons
If you've just booked your first Ski Holiday, or simply want to give Skiing a go, start off with our 1 hour introductory Ski Taster Lessons. And then if you wish to develop your skills even further our 1 1/2 hour Group Lessons will get you sliding down the mountain in no time! Our structured group lessons enable you to progress through our skill level system with other participants of the same ability. There is a maximum of 12 pupils on each group lesson. As everyone progresses at a different pace, it is possible a certain lesson may need to be repeated.
