First Time Skiing Tips - Get The Taste!

Want to learn to ski the easy way? Here at Chill Factore, we offer a fun taster session for wannabe skiers, so that you can get to grips with our first time skiing tips. This means  familiarising yourself with the snow, the equipment and some basic movements - before hitting the slopes to practice your first snow plough!

You and your family or friends will be in safe hands with one of our friendly, fully qualified instructors, who will help you find your snow legs before you move on to the beginner course, and eventually the main slope and beyond. The Fun Ski Taster is a gentle introduction to skiing, with both adults and children able to learn together. For children under 10, please take a look at our Kids Private Lessons.

What is a Ski Fun Taster?

A Fun Ski Taster takes place on the lower part of our beginner slope. Here you will experience the sensation of sliding in a safe, confidence-building environment. This lesson is an ideal introduction for individuals and groups of adults and children (over 10yrs) who want to understand how to ski as a beginner, with little to no experience on the snow.

This easy ‘learn to ski’ session will start when you meet your instructor, who will introduce you to the equipment - including how to fasten your ski boots and efficiently clip your skis on and off. You’ll then be guided out onto the snow and will experience skating on the flat, side stepping up a gentle slope and help you to develop a good skiing posture whilst sliding down the lower section of the beginner slope.

First time skiing tips

  • Come prepared. It gets pretty chilly out on the snow, so make sure to wear warm clothing and thick socks.
  • Be loose. Posture is important, but be sure not to remain too stiff. Keeping your limbs fairly relaxed means that falling on the snow will be less of an issue.
  • Love your skis. Think of your skis as an extension of your feet. In fact - think of them as your feet. That way you’ll associate your skis as part of your body and your movement will be more natural.
  • Welcome the fall. You WILL fall at some stage of the journey. But once you accept that, and have your first stumble, you’ll soon feel more comfortable on the snow.

What's included?

The price of your booking includes boots, skis, poles and a helmet. Gloves are mandatory or can be purchased for £6, we advise you wear a waterproof jacket and trousers.
