Getting started is always a bit bumpy, and the only way to learn is to enrol yourself in ski school and be taught the basics by an expert. As a beginner, you can be assured that on your first day out on the slopes, you will probably fall over! But a little perseverence and you will be making parallel turns down the mountain in no time and will even know how to stop!
Skiing as a beginner is a little more tiring than for the more experienced skier, and at the end of the first couple of days you will welcome the return to your Chalet hotel. A lovely hot bath and an apres ski drink at the hotel bar soon eases away those aches and pains.
At all resorts we cater for the beginner skier, however, some resorts are better for learning than others. Take a look at the resort maps and highlighted information on each resort page as a guide, but do remember that as a beginner you will be mainly skiing on nursery and green runs for your first few days, progressing to blue runs by the end of the week.
Beginners often think they have to miss out on the aprés ski fun if its up the mountain, but that is not the case at all. Most resorts have a free bus service which takes you from the village to the slopes where there are some super bars and restaurants. Alternatively take the cable car down at the end of the day and rest those tired legs.
Holiday prices include flights, resort transfers, accommodation, breakfast, tea, dinner with wine, ski hosting and lift pass collection service.
