Ski Lessons

It is a good idea to book ski school lessons before you go – especially if you are going during school holidays, and it’s worth having a lesson on a dry slope in advance too so you can master the basics of skiing. Most ski schools offer group beginner ski lessons that run for 2-3 hours each morning, and then the afternoon is yours to either practice or relax and enjoy some après ski. Call our ski experts today and we can help book beginners ski holidays tailored to your needs, including all the ski extras you may need.


Going with better skiers

Don't be discouraged if you are a beginner who is on holiday with a more experienced group. The key here is to select a ski resort which offers a good range of nursery slopes alongside more advanced options too. Also, providing an inviting progression to work towards for those who are still learning! Ski-in ski-out accommodation will provide a convenient meeting place or rest spot, giving you the flexibility to go at your own pace. Call our ski experts for information on the best places to ski for beginners.
