100% I had a great time today at the Ski Centre…. Today was my 4th Lesson my last lesson being last November. I was a bit nervous at first forgetting most things I was thought in the past but after 5 minutes of great instruction I was at ease and loved the hour long lesson….I am currently in the process of booking more lessons in the Ski Centre… I can’t wait to get back on the Track!

Ski-Center-21

Small class sizes and a great learning environment.

If you’ve never skied before this is by far the easiest and safest way to learn.  Just pop on the slope, hold on to bar… and of you go!

IMG_3767meab1

The Instructor is right beside you every step of the way.  With remote control in hand they can control the speed and height of the slope.

Like all good sports instructors they can pre-empt any falls and bring the slopes to a stop at a touch of a button.  Having taught in many environments our instructors say this is the fastest way to learn – we’ll have you snow ploughing in no time… with parallel skiing in your sights.

Achievement-Card

All skiers will receive a personal achievement card to aid faster learning and progression. All equipment supplied.

For experienced skiers we offer a unique and focused way to develop and take your skiing to a new level so that you can get the most out of your next trip.

If it’s making perfect parallel turns, tackling black runs or mastering off-piste – we can help. Our unique mirrored wall will allow you to see yourself ski so you can better understand where you can improve and our non-stop slopes mean you can get in meaningful length ski runs. Many National Ski Teams now use our slopes for training (Swiss ”A” Team, Dutch National Team etc). Read More >>

Expert - I usually only ski on Snow!

I’m an Expert – I only love snow!

We all love skiing on the real thing… however if you are an expert and you’re willing to try something new… our slopes will definitely help you improve your technique.

animatie-skibaanSki-Racing-morror

The “instant feedback mirror” helps you “hear, feel & see” yourself ski – in Real time! … helping you better understand areas to improve. We can match the slope to your skill level, Irish race skiers… (and the Swiss)… Fitness Bonus!

Remember, just like when you started to ski on a “dry-slope”, it will take a few goes to get used to the surface, however once you do we can help you progress to the next level… right here in Dublin!

School Groups

Schools: SCHOOL TEACHER – “The ski centre is a fantastic resource for second level students to get involved with. Skiing is a demanding sport that requires a combination of core fitness, athletic prowess and making the right decisions. The ski centre provides the students with the opportunity to train hard for the snow, away from the snow. The instructors are incredibly professional and knowledgeable, when I first brought a school group, I was amazed to see the progress they made in a very short time. It also caters for all levels, from tentative first steps to basic parallel to high end carving. The students all loved it and we are looking forward to taking another group up next season” – J.G. Secondary School Teacher

“It was awesome… really good fun!

This takes away part of the uncertainty in traveling and spending all that money and effort going to the alps… cause everything is right here on your doorstep… and the kind off learning and the kind of improvements you can make on the [slope] will be hugely advanced…

There are no ski lifts… no travelling… it’s all put in front of you and you go until you are tired… that repetition is important when you’re learning, practice makes you perfect!

I’ve had the benefit of being a professional ski racer all my life… and now this!… get yourself down and have a bit of fun!

Did not realise at the time how much I was learning whilst stuck in a snow plough at the Ski Centre!! Credit to your lessons, I am skiing much better, more evenly weighted on my skis, looking up more, more forward and understanding moving forward at the end of a turn to stay ahead of my skis!

15Min-Get-Ready-giff

How does it work?

  • SKI CENTRE uses unique revolving slope technology that simulate real ski runs and allow skiers to get in realistic length ski runs.  A mirrored wall also provides an instant feedback [you can actually see yourself ski!] all-in-all helping you develop better posture, balance, edge precision and rotation control.. …developing your fitness and confidence in your skiing .

How does the slope cope with different abilities?

  • The slopes can be sped up or slowed down, or be made steeper or gentler, to match the lesson and the learner. An instructor holds a remote control to stop the slope in an instant, if required. EVERY LESSON is given by a qualified instructor suited to your needs to ensure you get the most from your experience.
  • All customers will start with an introduction lesson – back to basics – and once you have the feel for the surface we will ensure you are skiing with similar abilities.

What makes the Ski Centre good for learners?

  • The rolling slope helps improve muscle memory, stamina and fitness. An instructor provides instant and continual feedback as overall technique and confidence improves.

Is this suitable to experienced or advanced skiers?

  • Yes.  The ski centre can focus on advanced techniques, off-piste techniques and even run ski race training programmes – several national teams including the Swiss A TEAM use these slopes for training.  As with any new surface the initial experience is humbling however once you get the hang of it you’ll benefit enormously!

How long is each lesson?

  • Each session lasts 60 minutes and includes 30 minutes ski time and 30 minutes observation or rest time – the format is 10 minutes on /10 minutes rest, repeated three times. All skiers must arrive 15 minutes before the lesson to sign-in, and get your skis and boots.

Can I ski on my own?

  • Private lessons are available if you wish to ski on your own.
  • The slopes were designed to accommodate 3 adult skiers or 6 snowboarders at a time to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
  • If required the slopes can be split in two for beginners, accommodating 6 skiers per slope.
