Q&A

Do I need SKI Gear?

  • All equipment is supplied, skis, boots, snowboards etc.  If you have your own ski boots bring them along, however all participants must use SKI CENTRE SKIS!

How does it work?

  • SKI CENTRE uses unique revolving slope technology that simulates real ski runs and allows 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.

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 any new surface the initial experience in humbling however once you get the hang of it your benefit enormously!
