What to expect in your ski lessons

    Day One.

    Your first day on the slope is your orientation day. There’s a lot to learn and get used to, such as how the equipment fits, how to adjust it, and of course, how to make it work for you. You’ll need a little patience this day, but with a little time and effort you will learn the basic techniques you’ll need to control speed and turn.

    Day Two.

    By your second lesson, you will be well on your way to mastering these techniques and you’ll begin linking your turns. You will have advanced beyond the Buttercup lift, to beginner or intermediate terrain with a little more pitch to it. By the end of the day you should be feeling comfortable not only on a lower intermediate run, but getting on and off the lift as well.

    Day Three.

    The third day should give you the confidence and skills you need to really start enjoying the sport. You’ll experience some of the freedom skiers and snowboarders say best describes the sensation. And you will be well on your way to appreciating how great it is to ski or snowboard.
