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 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.


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 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.
