We have a 100% Safety record.
Your Skiing Safety is paramount at all times.
On and off piste skiers are taught and encouraged to ski smart. That means thinking right, dressing right, feeding right, warming up right, stretching right and skiing right. There's an order to skiing success, it's very much hierarchical.
As Skier's advance they're often in a rush to progress. One thing Martin teaches Skiers right away is to Slow Down.. Thats right.. Slowing down seams odd to skiers who've been pushing themselves to progress fast...
Intermediate skier's usually have a longing to learn "How To Carve" their ski's. This always causes speed management issues if not understood. The Art of Skiing isn't about the "Carving Turn", this is only one element of great skiing.
Once Skiers get to the stage of Off Piste Skiing they're taught to manage their speed even more and increase their ski safety behaviour.
Off Piste Skiing isn't about rushing to the slopes to get the first tracks in place... it's about being smart and responsible with your control. Then you're free to leave the best tracks and return home safely.
This is where both learners and even professionals get stuck. So mastering a few skills and forming some good habits will enable you to enjoy a safer skiing experience.
The Mountain possesses natural hazards, showing respect and a willingness to learn is all part of the journey.
Martin encourages an open humble attitude that will set you up to become a Safe, Smart and Educated Skier, enjoying a bright skiing future!
