Ski Lesson Levels & Descriptions

Please Note:

When you categorise yourself for lessons please be realistic. Don’t grade yourself on what you want to do, think about what you can do. The lesson descriptions are guides and on the lesson day your instructors will take a good look at your level and re-grade you if required. You are better to start lower and be upgraded than vice versa.


Level 1 - First Timer

It is your first time skiing, you have never ever skied before.
