If you would like to learn how to ski, then it is strongly advised you book yourself some ski lessons. Skiing can feel very alien when you first start. It’s not really the sort of thing you can simply teach yourself and, whilst your friends might be competent skiers, that doesn’t necessarily mean they will be good teachers!
Of equal importance is selecting the right resort: a place with lots of green and blue runs is ideal, as these slopes are the least steep. Such runs are ubiquitous in Meribel and Courchevel, of Three Valleys, France, and so it’s the perfect resort for beginners.
Below are three of the most common concerns people have about learning to ski…
I’ll break something!
Skiing can be dangerous if you don’t learn the necessary skills to prevent harm, that’s true. It’s very easy to pick up speed and collide with a barrier or unintentionally go off-piste.
Hurling yourself down a snow-covered mountain is not for the faint-hearted, but Snow D’Light’s experienced instructors will teach you how to control your speed, even when descending the steepest of slopes.
I’m a slow learner – my instructor will lose patience with me
Snow D’Light offer professional, patient and flexible instructors who will teach you in small groups, ensuring you get the right level of hands-on support. This way, you are much more likely to progress rapidly and be confident when the time comes to tackle a slope independently.
I’ll get lost/stuck on the mountain
There is so much to learn when you are first starting out. From getting on and off a ski lift to navigating the resort itself, you don’t want to accidentally find yourself going down a black run on your first day! Beyond the techniques necessary to be a good skier, Snow D’Light instructors will teach you all of these additional skills so that you can ski with confidence.
Skiing holidays are a lot of fun. The adrenaline of sliding down a mountain combined with stunning views, the jubilant atmosphere of après-ski and the delicious restaurants is hard to beat. However, we also know that skiing for the first time can be a little intimidating!
