Ski Total goes skiing with ES Verbier
Our Ski Total Resort Representative Rachel Hives tried out a ski lesson with the renowned ski school European Snowsport in Verbier. Here she tells us all about it and why she think you should give it a go as well!
On Thursday, both Will Brown (the Ski Total chalet manager in Verbier) and I took part in a fabulous lesson with Verbier’s finest Ski School – European Snowsport.
Both Will and I have skied since a young age but we had been hearing such great reviews about European Snow Sports we thought we would see what all the fuss was about!
Our instructor was a lovely English gentleman called Tim, who really was a credit to the ski school.
He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and keen to help iron out any of the bad habits we had picked up over the years.
After assessing our technique and a little warm up, Tim took us down various world renowned itineraries such as Tortin and Vallon d’Arbi. Both runs tested our legs to the limit! He showed us how to attack moguls and handle the incredible fresh powder that has been hitting the resort over the past couple of days (and it is set to continue!!!).
Our lesson was only a three hour session but we were amazed that in that short period of time our technique improved drastically. Even though we were completely shattered after being put through our paces!
European Snowsport also offer lessons for complete beginners and children. They offer both group and private lessons for people of all abilities. The company also host off piste and performance lessons as well as guides!
No matter what age, or how experienced you are I would definitely recommend a lesson to anyone! After all you can never learn too much! Plus it’s always good fun getting to meet new people and explore some of the area’s hidden secrets, which Verbier has a lot of!
We will definitely be booking another lesson on our day off next week!
