Snow Sports School
|Discovering the fun of the snow is a lot easier when you have a few lessons under your belt. Although you’re probably eager to join everyone else up on the mountain, it’s a good idea to learn a few basics before you head up. Clipping into a pair of skis or strapping on a snowboard for the first time can be a little daunting, but learning the basics isn’t too difficult and after a few turns down the mountain, you’ll be full of confidence.|
Taking a lesson also teaches you how to stay safe on the slopes and will make sure you know the basics, so you don’t pick up any bad habits in your skiing or snowboarding technique.
All the resorts in NSW and Victoria offer snow schools with a range of lessons for skiing, snowboarding and cross-country. Some resorts even include a free first lesson in their resort packages. It’s usually a good idea to book lessons in advance, that way you can be sure your trip is off to a good start. It’s up to you how many lessons you would like to take, you can be up and running after a couple or even after just one, if you’re a natural! Lessons are available at all levels, from beginners to expert, and it’s a great way to brush up on your technique if you haven’t been to the snow for a season or more.
Most resorts offer group lessons, so you can learn with your friends or as a family, which is often a cost-effective way to learn. Otherwise, private lessons will give you benefit of the instructor’s undivided attention and is ideal for those who want to become adept quickly. You may not be a professional after a lesson or two, but you will be able to move more easily and enjoy yourself a lot more.
