New Weekly Intermediate Carving Workshop

If you are an intermediate skier that wants to get out of the intermediate rut and start skiing with more control then this is the course for you!

Skis have changes a lot over the last few year they keep getting shorter and easier to use. That is however if you know how to use them!

I have taught literally hundreds of people over the last few years here in Austria and the same thing keeps coming up, 99% of skiers have the same faults! Mainly people don’t know how the ski really works so they use other methods of controlling the ski to turn. Sometimes they even do this very elegantly and have perfected bad technique over many years.

This short three day course will give you all the knowledge you need to stop sliding and start carving! Carving is the holy grail in ski terms as it is a fantastic feeling, smooth, effortless and safe, Interested?
