Skiing and Snowboarding

If you want to make the best of your winter you can miss the opportunity to go skiing or snowboarding!

See Learning Center offers you the highest standard of individual personal attention and quality accommodation and instruction. Our programmes are ideal for schools and groups.

The ski equipment provided is high quality late-model general-purpose carving skis with automatic step-in bindings and ski stoppers, together with either comfortable foam-lined modern clip ski boots. For snowboarding, quality modern snowboards are provided together with either hard or soft snowboarding boots. All equipment is supplied by licensed local resort suppliers.

Insurance for accidental breakage and/or loss of hired equipment is covered by the travel insurance included in tour prices.

Expert tuition not only makes skiing and snowboarding more fun but, just as importantly, safe. Three choices of level of instruction is offered: 6 x 2 hours per day; 6 x 4 hours per day or 6 x 6 hours per day (fully supervised). Fully supervised skiing includes five hours of structured lessons and practice with the Instructor and a supervised lunch hour. Ski class sizes average 12 skiers.

Snowboarding courses, available at a supplement, provide 6 x 4 hours snowboard instruction.

We also give you the opportunity to taste snowboard by spending your last day snowboarding. Instruction hours and class sizes will be the same as booked for skiing.

Meal arrangements are on a half-board basis, which gives you the opportunity to sample the exciting variety of delicacies available at mountain restaurants. However, packed lunches may be pre-booked as a supplement if required.

A full week’s programme of evening activities is available. These activities include ice-skating, bowling, swimming, disco, excursions, etc.
