Lessons are essential for beginners and recommended for intermediate and advanced skiers. The methods taught during these lessons will allow you to improve your technique and approach more difficult slopes with greater confidence, including the beautiful red and black slopes available in Livigno.
The first two days are spent on a small escalator carpet, which carries you up a gentle slope, before you start skiing slowly down. You will be taught how to stop, turn and slow down on a very small flat slope and beginners enjoy the skiing sensation immediately. The lessons then progress to learning how to go up a ski lift and tackling a slightly longer slope. By the end of the week, our beginners usually comfortably tackle a full easy slope with confidence.
This does not mean they know it all as it takes several skiing holidays to make a good skier, but with us beginners enjoy the whole week of skiing, and look forward to their next skiing holiday.
Skiing is a group activity, so skiing together with family or friends is something our clients always look forward to. Parents or friends who are not skiing may still accompany skiers during their lessons.
