Ski Academy Courses
A typical course with Ski Academy starts at 10:00a.m. Monday morning. If you are an early riser, lifts open at 8:30a.m. giving you plenty of time to take a few early morning runs in the fresh powder, then grabbing a quick coffee at Bugaboos before you meet up with your trainer.
At 10:00a.m. you will head off with your trainer and continue refining your technique. If it is a video day, you will shoot video then review your skiing with your trainer before heading out for the afternoon.
The afternoon sessions will generally be adventurous by nature exploring your favourite runs, and testing your skills in the moguls, steeps and powder. Video may be taken again in the afternoon to show how you are doing in the off-piste conditions.
The basic philosophy of the trainers is to improve your skills through individual focus, and use video to help you realize your progress. Skills are usually developed on groomed terrain in the morning unless there is 20cms of new snow, in which case it’s customary to take a few powder runs.
Afternoons will be typically time spent learning how to ski everywhere but the groomed runs. By the time 3:30p.m. rolls around each day you will probably be ready for the hot tub and/or a beer to celebrate the day’s achievements.
