SAFETY, ENJOYMENT, LEARNING
Safety must come first. If a skier feels relativley safe, they will more likely enjoy their skiing. This creates the state of mind required for optimum learning. We aim to provide safety and enjoyment with technical and tactical help to provide the right learning enviroment.
Teaching skiing is much more than just our profession, it’s our passion motivating and driving us to inspire and enlighten you.
A PERSONALISED COACHING APPROACH
We always focus on the individulal needs of each client, ensuring the emphasis is on personal skier improvement, even in groups of up to 6 skiers.
CONTROL, VERSATILITY & EXPRESSION
We understand skiers needs and ultimate goals. We teach control first, then versatilty and then individual skier expression. Why?
Skiers are happier when in control. Let’s face it, nobody likes feeling out of control. If we feel out of control, we don’t feel safe. For this reason control must come first.
Once a skier has control, they can relax more and learn the second most important skier need, versatility. Versatility needs to come next because the mountain is such a variable place with the snow and terrain changing all the time. Sometimes, the snow will change from powder to ice and slush in just one run. For this reason, a skier needs to learn versatility with their skills to be able to cope with this constantly changing enviroment.
Expression comes next. If a skier is in control and versatile with their skills, they can start to fully express themselves on the mountain choosing more inventive and creative lines which provides greater exhilaration.
Skiing is a sport that requires freedom to move so we can balance and adjust as we ski. We help encourage your own natural style to develop so you can feel natural and free as you ski. It is NOT our aim to make everyone ski the same way. Your way is better!
We believe you will learn something much better if you understand why and how it works. This is why we also develop your knowledge and awareness of how your skis work against the snow. This will enhance your ability to more effectively influence your skis.
People learn much better by their own experiences than they do by simply watching or listening to others. For this reason we provide innovative tasks and exercises that are strategically designed to give you insight on how your skis work against and in the snow. This will help you to discover, feel and develop more positive skiing.
NEVER STOP IMPROVING
All skiers can improve. Even the best skiers in the world have coaching. It’s fun to keep on improving and learning as a skier. We continually strive to improve our own skiing, knowledge of the sport and mountain environment so that we stay at the forefront of modern ski teaching.
