Beginner Ski Holidays

Learn to ski for beginners

We know that learning to ski or board can be daunting but it really needn't be! Learning to ski and board is a lot of fun with our expert help and professional instructors. We can have most guests up and skiing around the nursery slopes within 2 to 3 days of arrival!

Our course of ski lessons lasts between 3 to 5 days and is tailored to boost your confidence on the slopes. Our staff are all very sympathetic and passionate about their snow sports, after all we all had to go through the learning curve ourselves a few years ago. After the first week on our course most of our clients find themselves venturing over much of the resort under their own steam and enjoying tackling different terrain on the mountain with increasing confidence.

The half day lessons are the perfect combination for beginners to learn the basics and then practice what they learned in the afternoon under their own steam. This combination often promotes quicker learning where novice skiers are not too restricted by a full day of lessons. (either morning or afternoon lessons).

Our learn to ski package

We can provide an ideal platform for beginners to learn in an all inclusive ski package where the stressful parts of learning to ski/ride are taken away so that you can concentrate on enjoying the snow! 

As a newcomer, we recommend certain resorts which offer a stress-free atmosphere and networks of gentle slopes to boost your confidence. Our sales team will recommend a resort to suit your needs. We understand that beginners will benefit from a low-pressure atmosphere to learn in, and an extensive network of easy, well-kept slopes to help make progress quicker and easier.

Our learn to ski package includes everything that you will need for your week away: 6 half days of lessons, liftpass and hire for all Morzine ski holidays and Les Gets ski holidays which provide the perfect base for your beginner ski holiday or family break away.

The Morzine and Les Gets area liftpass covers about 200kms which is more than many "average resorts" and certainly more than enough skiing for a week for even the more advanced skiers.

What is included:

  • 7 Nts Hotel Accom, centre of resort
  • Flights (London) regionals can be arranged
  • Rtn Airport Transfers
  • Chalet Hosts
  • Breakfast, Cakes & tea
  • 3-course evening meal (6 days)
  • 1-week Lift pass - 6 days
  • 1 week Lessons - 6 days
  • 1 week Ski Hire - 6 days
  • Towels, taxes, bed linen

The extra care and attention that you will get from a niche operator like Alpine Elements will ensure the learning curve on a beginner skiing holiday is made especially easy for you. Our mountain staff are all expert at our sport and on hand to help and advise with things like lesson selection, resort orientation, buying liftpasses and getting fitted up for ski or board hire.

Small children often require a Ski Garden or Kids Club with specialist treatment suited to their levels of stamina to help them master the basics, enjoy skiing in a fun environment and encourage their future progression. Children can be cared for over a half or whole day whilst allowing you some time to hone your own ski skills!

“Thank you for providing us with such a wonderful holiday. Your Company and staff have been a joy to deal with, and in resort nothing was too much trouble. Thank you also for addicting my son to skiing and condemning me to a life of penury as I hand over large amounts of cash to Alpine Elements every year!" - Douglas Thompson, Chalet des Neiges Les Arcs 2000 26th Feb
