How to Ski Tutorials
Lots of people like the idea of going skiing but are put off by the business of learning how to ski. They think it involves falling over until you’re bruised black and blue – and the fear of making an absolute fool of yourself is the biggest turn-off.
Well, a sense of self-humour certainly helps, but the rest just isn’t true. Advances in equipment have taken the sting out of the whole learning process and progress is rapid. If you’re moderately fit and have a bearable sense of balance you can be skiing the whole mountain on easy runs within just a few days.
But the quality of the first lessons is vitally important. Nothing is more off-putting than an overcrowded ski class, where the instructor is unable to remember their pupils’ names and may not notice when the last link in the 12-person snake comes a cropper.
