The Activity With A Difference!

Our TY programme consists of 4-6 week mondules, depending on the numbers participating. Students will learn a new skill in a friendly and safe environment, with lots of games on the slopes once the basics have been mastered. 

Lessons will take students from complete beginners through improvers, intermediate and advanced levels, depending on attendance and ability. An achievement card is filed for each student to measure their progress on a weekly basis, which can be kept at the end of their term. We have 6 levels of progression, and beyond! A Ski Certificate of Competence is also awarded to students on completion of the module.

All ski equipment is included with the programme, but we recommend that tracksuits are worn and thick sports/ski socks are brought along to wear underneath the boots.

  5. Phase 2 Parallel turns

Group Sizes

For each student to get 2 x 10min slots (20mins each) it is advisable to have a maximum of 20 students per hour. If schools would like to accommodate larger groups of up to 40 a day, visits can be split easily into early/late morning, or morning and afternoon. Otherwise, students will be off the slope too long and can lose interest!
