Entry criteria

There is no specific entry criteria and because we run multiple groups, you can join at almost any level. However, it is recommended that you can ski comfortably on most pistes and are looking to further your technical skills rather than learning to ski during the early stages. If you are looking to learn to ski from a lower level, you may want to consider getting some private tuition from one of our trainers.
