Your current ability level

Please help us find the right level for you! Please take a look at the levels below to help us form our groups. Ability levels must be stated at the time of booking in order for us to timetable our lessons. Occasionally we get requests for private lessons for families or friends of mixed abilities. If you have such requirements please let us know in advance.

If a level does not fit exactly then levels of 3/4 or 2/3 are fine too.
Level 1 - Green
(Ski and board)
You have never skied or boarded before, feel nervous on nursery slopes, and have only been on dry/indoor slopes in the UK. You may struggle to control your speed.
Level 2 - Blue
(Ski and board)
You are happy on nursery slopes and easy blues but you find icy or slightly steeper sections a problem. You are capable of stopping and turning on a blue slope.
Level 3 - Red
Skiers:You are fine skiing blue pistes parallel and are confident on easy reds, but do not feel so good on steeper reds, or icy/bumpy sections.

Snowboarders:You are fine boarding on blue pistes and are confident on easy reds. You can link turns without hesitating or traversing on these slopes. You are interested in trying some off-piste boarding.

Level 4 - Black
Skiers: You can confidently ski all red runs and easier blacks but you are apprehensive of steeper or mogulled blacks. Off-piste is a challenge to you!

Snowboarders: You can confidently board all red runs and easier blacks while linking turns. You may be apprehensive on steeper slopes. You are seeking improvement with your off-piste technique and are prepared to try tricks in the snowpark.
