If this is to be your first Ski holiday, you will certainly need to have Skiing Tuition. I rather thought that I would find it all rather easy but was sadly over optimistic. However with the right equipment and good tuition you should be skiing confidently and enjoying your holiday and thinking about booking your next years holiday ( or even this years second! ) in no time.
Although you do not have to organise tuition when making a booking, you organise this in the resort or off the tour operator on your coach transfer. But we would advise that you organise your lessons when booking your holiday.
The tour operators sell the tuition bundles at the same price or less that they are in the resort so save yourself the hassle!
As with Lift passes, I can never understand that when we are on the transfer coach, maybe enjoying the scenery, reading a book or trying to catch up on sleep because of an early flight, that there are people buying booking Ski lessons on the coach. However if you have forgotten to do that, then book with your Tour representative on the transfer or at your welcome meeting.
You will still want to book some tuition on your first few holidays in order to improve, and even when you get really good, you may want to come back to lessons to improve or iron out bad habits.
Look at the length of time of Ski Lessons, this varies from country to country, and give yourself plenty of time to get there in the morning, getting dressed up, booted and out of the door takes a while, particularly if you children to help get ready.
Take the option of lessons in the morning, this will make sure you make the most of your day, and it gives you the afternoon to practice.
The lessons are also a good social experience, and the Instructors are great with Kids and cater for all ages from Kindergarten upwards.
For skiers with families, ski school lessons for your kids ensure their safety and fun, and give you time to have some free time to yourselves!
