Alpine Lessons - Skiing

During Term 3 students have the chance to learn cross country skiing.

With the school surrounded by beautiful white fluffy stuff, learning to ski forms the best mode of transport. Students will be involved in 3 cross country ski lessons developing skills to comfortably get themselves around, leading up to touring with packs for multiple nights.

Students will start with developing balance on the skis with stepping and walking exercises. This will then lead into down hill running and the all important stopping and turning in control. We have the Dinner Plain ski slope right next to our door and kilometres of groomed cross country ski tracks available. Students often take the opportunity to ski in their free time to help develop their skills.
