Ski Schools

Ski School is often an important part of a ski holiday, especially for beginners. For starters you can't learn to ski without it, skiing is one of those few sports where expert tuition is to be advised as opposed to just giving it a go with friends.

So, if ski school is potentially an integral part of your ski holiday, then what information and advice do you need once you've booked your holiday?

Beginner Ski Lessons

Beginner skiers, regardless of age, should very much head to ski school. Not only do you receive expert tuition, which allows you to improve your technique and enjoy more of the mountain safely but you will also be skiing with people of a similar ability — believe me, there's nothing more frustrating then being left behind by your friends all day when you're a beginner.

If you are heading out on your first ski trip try and find time to head to your local UK slope. A couple of lessons on either an indoor slope or dry slope will prove invaluable. If you turn up understanding the basics you will get a lot more out of your time on the mountain. Also, when picking your resort think of somewhere suitable for beginners, such as Alpe d'Huez or Les Gets — you're not going to be skiing the couloirs of Jackson Hole or Chamonix for quite some time!

Advanced Ski Lessons

Once you've got the hang of skiing and you've maybe even now had a couple of holidays without any lessons, it doesn't mean there isn't any tuition out there for you. Even instructors are always learning.

After a few weeks on the slopes you'll have an understanding of what it is you enjoy about skiing, so why not enjoy an advanced lesson or a skills clinic? These lessons are often aimed a specific technique, whether it be bump skiing (moguls), carving or even off-piste. Advanced clinics also don't mean you need to be skiing black runs, there are lessons for every level and by taking them you can only learn to enjoy more of the mountain.

Group Lessons Or Private Tuition?

Both group and private ski tuition have their benefits. Group ski lessons are great for a sociable experience, you are skiing with people of a similar level, they are great for kids — and happy kids means happy parents — and it means you don't have to ski on your own. It can also be very satisfying to progress as a group and if you are away with friends you may find you can all ski together.

Private lessons also have their benefits. They tend to be shorter and offer a more intense, often one to one, experience. Again, these ski lessons are ideal for all levels and are a great way of improving your technique as the instructor only has you to worry about. Another advantage is that you will receive a more tailor made experience, over the course of a few hours or lessons the instructors get to know what approach works best with you, the slopes to ski with you one, your sense of humour and what aspect of your technique needs to be worked on.

Whatever your level, age or tuition preference ski school can make a real difference to your holiday, and the more confident a skier you are, the more you can relax and enjoy the mountain.
