Skiing and snowboarding is fast becoming the most sought after sporting holiday and as easy as it may seem, it isn’t. You can’t just put on your gear, have grab your skis or board and off you go. You are going to need some lessons. you need a instructor that not isn’t only an expert in skiing or boarding, and has the necessary certifications to teach but also is well equipped with the knowledge of the mountains.
Even though many group lessons are available on the slopes of UK, there are a few downsides of learning in a group, such as every student has there own pace of learning, if one person is slower and the others are faster learners the instructor can not slow himself so that one can learn, also in a group the information or the technique passed on isn’t as easily passed on either due to barriers in learning. Also the instructor can’t r pay full attention to each person.
If you’ve booked our holiday on a slope, be it in Glencoe or in Hailsham always look for skiing lessons that are private. Even if they cost a little more than the ones in groups, those extra pounds shall last you your holiday and even a few more holidays as well. Private lessons can be cost effective in the long run since your instructor has his whole attention on you and you only. He fully understands your earlier knowledge on skiing technique and your ability and teaches you so, if you are a beginner he may teach you first on a smaller training slope so you have some idea and if you’ve managed to go prior skiing without lessons, he may skip the smaller slope and take you on the bigger slope.
Also private lessons make a student more comfortable in learning since they don’t have to feel awkward about showing off their abilities in front of others and may learn even much better.
Since the instructors are experts themselves, they have the ability to come down to the level of the student, so it doesn’t matter if you have don’t have the knowledge of how to stand on your skis or know the difference to riding goofy or regular or you just want a lesson on how to manoeuvre yourself on that slope, he shall teach you so.
Also if you just want to polish of your skills and don’t really know how, private lessons are the best option, since you don’t have to wait around for the group lesson to come to that point.
Even if you don’t have an interest in skiing and just want to be a daredevil and snowboard, private lessons are best for the daredevil residing inside of you. To perfectly show you the techniques and give you handy tips for future skiing and snowboarding trips.
So if you ever book a holiday up in the mountains opt for private lessons, even if you are an expert. It would not hurt having a few tricks up your sleeve!
