Can ski lessons help advanced skiers?
Ski lessons might seem like something for newbie skiers and small children - not necessary for people who ski regularly. After all, once you’ve grasped the basics, it’s less about learning more than it is refining the technique, right?
For many skiers, the option of indulging in some extra tuition could actually prove hugely beneficial to their skiing. By increasing competency and refining techniques, skiers who are already skilled can become better all-mountain skiers, learn how to apply themselves better and ultimately get even more out of their time on the slopes.
Telegraph writer Tim Woodward says that a week of intensive coaching had helped him to shake off the constraints of skiing in a way that was neat and tidy, in favour of skiing more athletically and having more fun. He said: “It all seemed contrary to the slow, controlled techniques we had been practising – and yet it was by incorporating those new skills into looser, freer skiing that progress was being made.”
While Woodward took on an intensive five day course complete with video analysis of techniques, drilling and more, there are less intense options for those who just need a tune-up. Whether it’s a one-day course or a one-to-one session with an instructor, just a few hours of lessons could help even the most advanced skiers to get the most out of their time in the Alps.
