  • I learned to ski a few years ago using the 'parallel method' in Munich - 3x weekends, skied a black slope on the 3rd Sunday (it was an easy black but a black nonetheless). It was genuinely amazing how fast everyone progressed, if you're learning to ski from scratch (especially if you're an adult) you should check it out. If you're super interested, you start off with real short skis since they're much easier to control (at low speed) then each day you get slightly longer skis until day 6 you're on the correct skis for your height. The idea is that you learn to ski with parallel skis from scratch, that way you never have to un-learn bad habits (like pizza).

  • when you do not know how to ski you should go to the alps and get a proper instructor as the majority of english ski instructors are not the best and you would start on nursery slopes and build your way up.
