We've spent a lot of time this summer meeting up with some very interesting people who only ever leave the mountaints when there is absolutely no chance of skiing left at all!
Some of the best ski schools in the Alps have been to visit us recently to introduce their new and exciting plans for next season. Following this, we wanted to remind you that ski schools do not exist solely for an introduction to a steady snowplough. Whilst ski school instructrors are very good at helping beginners when they topple off drag lifts, they are also expert skiiers with the capability to teach even the most confident skiier a thing or two!
Still not convinced? Why not have a go at New Generation's Ski Race Camps (available in the 3 Valleys)? Run by two passionate Italian race coaches on selected dates throughout the season, these camps give you the chance to learn from some of the best in the business. They'll be able to monitor your progress with their video footage and there's a competition at the end of the course.
TDC Ski (in Meribel, Val d'Isere and Tignes) is a ski school that does exactly what it says on the can. Short for 'The Development Centre', any skiier will be sure to improve their technique during a clinic here. Try their 5 day early season clinics for an exceptional price!
For teenagers who have outgrown those kiddie lessons, send them off on a teen clinic with Progression Ski (Val d'Isere and Tignes), who will show them how to tackle parks and jumps under the watchful eye of their instructor. They will even start the clinics later to allow time for a lie in!
Finally, following last season's spectacular snowfall, off-piste adventure camps are springing up all over the place. Call our office on +44 1993 899 420 to book your instructors now and challenge yourself this winter!
