Learn to Ski. What You'll Learn and How You Will Progress
Do you want to get into skiing but you don’t know where to start?

You might just want a new hobby or have booked a holiday and want ski lessons before you go to the mountains, you may just want to have some fun. The best place to start is with indoor ski lessons at Snozone. We will guide you through the basics and build your confidence on skis. We teach a range of ages and abilities, skiing really is a sport for all.
 
When you participate in our ski lessons our main priority is your safety, and therefore we have built a lesson programme that will take you from a beginner skier to an intermediate or advanced skier. Our lesson programme is designed to introduce you to skiing and progress at the perfect speed. Your very first ski lesson will give you all the basics and after our lessons 1&2 you will have learnt the important fundamentals of skiing and be able to control your speed and change direction. This will all take place on our dedicated beginner slope where you are surrounded by our expert coaches and other beginner skiers. We guarantee you will have a great time!

Once you have mastered the basics on our nursery hill and you are confident linking your turns and changing direction, it’s time to move onto ski lesson 3&4. This where the funs really starts! The coach will show you how to use the poma lift and you will put your new skills to practice on our main slope. We have dedicated halfway point where our lessons can start from.

Our qualified coaches will ensure you are distributing your weight and using your skis to make the perfect turns to get you ready to the steeper terrain. This is when you will start feeling the buzz everyone talks about. You’ve learnt to control your speed, link your turns and you’re gliding down the hill, in control!

Once your coach thinks you are ready and you feel confident, we will introduce you to steeper terrain and learn to ski from the top of our main slope. The coach will guide you down demonstrating the best way to descend the hill. This is where you will truly feel the progression and put everything you have learnt into practice. By the end of ski lessons 4,5&6 you will be able to ski from the top of the main slope linking your turns, vary your speed to the terrain whilst matching your skis in the middle of your turns and enjoying the thrill of skiing.

Once you’ve completed your indoor ski lessons there is no limit to how far you can progress. You can join one of our development coaching sessions to enhance your skills of even join one of our advanced coaching sessions and work towards becoming the next Olympic racer or freestyle skier! There is also a great social element to our coaching sessions and you will often see the development coaching crowd enjoying a drink in our Alpine Kitchen between ski lessons or sessions.
