Adult &
Group Lessons

Adult Group Lessons

Throughout the week we offer a number of adult ski group lessons for all levels of ability. Lead by an experienced instructor, these lessons are a great cheaper option if you are looking to improve your own skills in a more social environment.

The sessions are an hour long, with groups up to a maximum of 10 participants.

Beginner Sessions- A group lesson designed for those who have never been skiing before. It includes an induction to equipment, static exercises, walking, climbing and sliding on skis. These sessions are 15 mins longer than our other group lessons in order to give you time to learn about and understand all the equipment you use when you ski.


Improver sessions- A group lesson which follows the taster session. These include control of speed and direction using snowplough, leading to beginner turns and an introduction to the lift.

Lift User Sessions- A group lessons suited for those who have mastered the lift use and are ready to move on from the beginners group. it includes revision of snowplough turns and leads on to the parallel turning.
