Create Fresh Tracks – Let Skiing Take Your Confidence to New Heights

Is your anxiety and fear getting in the way of you enjoying the magic of skiing?

Do you feel anxious and out of your comfort zone on your skiing holiday? We’ve all had tuition and are more than familiar with the concept of how to ski – that’s not the problem here. Our challenge is to manage the psychology of our skiing – that fear factor which holds us back from relaxing into it and having a great day.

If this sounds familiar then join the club. We are the generation with many family and friends who love their skiing yet we’re feeling caught between sharing those precious experiences but dreading it! The added anxiety is missing out on family fun and friendships.

If you’re ready to take the first step to conquer your fear and take control then we have the perfect course for you.

In January and March 2019 we will be running the first bespoke Fresh Tracks Ski Coaching Courses in Champoluc, Italy in collaboration with Louise Pode of ProAbility Ltd.

Louise PodeLouise is an experienced coach who has made the transition from petrified to great skier. Using her professional coaching training she has changed her whole perspective of skiing and developed a Fresh Tracks Ski Coaching Course to enable you to regain your confidence.

This bespoke course will release you from those inner fears and enable you to fall in love with skiing at whatever level. It isn’t about technical expertise but empowering you to manage your fear of skiing and have fun on the slopes. Consider it as a gift to your family and friends… a gift of those many fun shared experiences ahead of you.

We’ll provide a fabulous environment with like-minded individuals, using great coaching techniques to ensure that you discover the magic of skiing.

For more information or to arrange a chat contact Louise at skicoaching@proability.co.uk or Ski 2 on info@ski-2.com, tel 01962 713330.

Together we can create a great skiing future!

A Week in the Life of a Ski 2 Penguin

What fun will your little ones have while you are skiing?

Arriving at the hotel

After a comfortable (and probably sleepy) journey from the airport, you and your little penguin will arrive at your hotel, find your room and get settled in for the night.

Arriving at the Penguin Club

The next morning, one of our Ski 2 Resort Ambassadors will take you over the bridge and up the snowy road to the Penguin Club. Surrounded by trees and snow, there’s lots of outdoor fun to be had if you are lucky enough to have sunny weather.

Drawing at the Penquin club in ChampolucIndoor Activities

There are plenty of toys, games, jigsaws, books and DVDs to choose from. If your little penguin likes to get creative, they can colour in their own penguin to add to our penguin scene on the wall.

Outdoor Activities

Sledging anyone? There are plenty of sledges for all the penguins. There are also some strap on skis if they are too small for ski school, but would like to have a go. And, of course, lots of other fun outdoor toys to play with. Or they could always build a snowman!

Have a go at skiing?

For the bigger penguins, we offer Penguin Club + ski. Your penguin will spend most of the day having fun at the Penguin Club and then one of our dedicated nannies, who is also a qualified ski instructor, will take them up the mountain to learn how to ski. Your penguin will first need to get kitted up in ski hire…

…they will then take the gondola up to Crest, where they can play on the nursery slope.

Tired?

After all that excitement, it might be time to curl up with a hot chocolate or have a nap in the Penguin Club cot room.
