Skiing 101 - Learn the Basics

Fri February 15, 2019

Guide to basic skiing techniques

Ok, we’re a little biased, but as far as we’re concerned, skiing is one of the world’s most exciting, graceful and fulfilling sports. And even better, getting to a reasonable level of ability can be quick and easy, if taught well. With this guide, the team here at VIP SKI are aiming to illustrate the basic techniques of skiing so that you can swiftly become more confident and able on the slopes, after which point you can progress at your own pace. Because let’s be honest, done badly skiing can be dangerous, so there is nothing more important than laying the foundations well.

Back to Ski School

Fri August 31, 2018

We say ski school, you think groups of French children swarming around the lifts, falling over and generally causing havoc. Think again because ski schools have branched out massively and now offer a huge variety of classes to suit all levels of skiers. Even advanced skiers can benefit hugely from a pair of eyes on the ground to point out bad habits which you might have picked up over the years.

Here’s our run down of the most exciting classes to discover this season from our ski school partners in France and Austria.

Avoriaz Alpine Ski School – Ladies’ Backcountry Clinic

No boys allowed in this exclusive group, led by British Freeride coach Amy Marwick with the aim to introduce backcountry skiing (off-piste to you and I) in a friendly and welcoming environment. Amy will cover the basic backcountry skillset including choosing an appropriate line, lining up natural features and, of course, using avalanche safety kit effectively and efficiently.

The course is scheduled to run from 28 – 30 January. Look at Chalet Ossetra and Penthouse 1 for luxury accommodation.

Below you’ll find a rundown of core ski safety advice that should be kept in mind whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned pro, because like all the best adventures, skiing also has its fair share of risk.
