What I can do? You would have already skied a week before, can use drag lifts and covered the basics. You may feel a bit rusty on your first day but you will be able to comfortably snow plough turn down greens runs. What we’ll learn: A recap on the ski way code and build confidence on the mountain. Ski on all green runs with a strong & controlled snowplough. By the end of the week your snowplough will start disappearing, turning into a parallel turn, allowing you to control your speed on easy blue runs. What will I achieve: If you can ski green runs in a plough you will achieve ‘Blue Star level 2′ but if you can start linking your turns and finish a turn with your skis becoming parallel the you will achieve ‘Blue Star level 3′.

Additional information

Level 0

This will be your first time on skis. We will have you sliding, turning, jumping, and skiing down green runs in no time. It’s not unusual for some groups to be skiing blue runs by the end of the week.

What we’ll learn: We will help you become familiar with all the ski equipment. As soon as we have you snowplough turning we can then explore all the green runs. Concentrating on speed control by using different size turns making you a safer skier.

Level 1

What I can do? You would have already skied a week before, can use drag lifts and covered the basics.

You may feel a bit rusty on your first day but you will be able to comfortably snow plough turn down greens runs.

What we’ll learn: A recap on the ski way code and build confidence on the mountain. Ski on all green runs with a strong & controlled snowplough. By the end of the week your snowplough will start disappearing, turning into a parallel turn, allowing you to control your speed on easy blue runs.

Level 2

What I can do? You can happily zoom around the mountain on all blue runs with your skis becoming parallel from time to time.

What we’ll learn? As we go through the week we will do lots of different exercises and games that are aimed to help your skis become consistently parallel.

Hopefully by the end of the week we will be conquering parallel turns and maybe try a red.

Level 3

What I can do? You can already rip down blues with your skis parallel and even take on reds.

What we’ll learn? Introduce pole plants into your turns, we will put your parallel turns to the test on red runs and look at what needs to be changed in order to make you a consistent parallel skier on tougher terrain.

Level 4

What I can do? You can ski down red runs and easy black runs with your skis in a parallel position, but find it hard sometimes controlling your speed and line.

What we’ll learn? Well timed pole plants and different turn shapes and sizes so that your parallel turns become versatile for all slopes . You will ski varied terrain such as reds & black runs including bumps and jumps.

Level 5

What I can do? You are an excellent parallel skier and can ski down any pistes open to the general public.

What we’ll learn? This level is aimed at making you a demon on all terrain there will be nothing the mountain can throw at us that we can’t cope with. We will teach you to change speed and direction with ease whilst tackle bumps, jumps, powder, steep runs & much more. By the end of the week there won’t be any parts of the mountain that we can’t cover.
