Learn to ski

Everyone remembers that when it came to learning to swim, it seemed like no mean feat, but now it’s a whole new challenge. Learning to ski! How am I going to keep my balance? How do I turn? How do I stop? I can’t take the ski lift. So many questions to cut short in order to …learn to ski.

Unique sensations

Holding on to the boards

This morning, it’s with great trepidation that you join your ski instructor on the slopes near Prapoutel, Pleynet or Pipay to learn to ski. And yet, looking at the others, you’d think it was easy. Clic-clac…your bindings are buckled and you’re ready to go. Oops… it goes on by itself… oops! If you’re used to rollerblading or skateboarding, you’ll find that balance comes naturally, as long as you straighten up and keep your back straight.

Making the first runs

“It goes fast! It goes too fast! How many times have you laughed out loud at that line? But now it’s your turn to make your first descent on the slopes of Prapoutel or on the side of Le Pleynet.

Push on your poles, face the slope and go for it. Oops, it’s slippery! Yes, that’s what skiing’s all about! After sliding a few meters, you need to make your first turn. Plant the pole! Plant the pole, we say. Lean on your swallowed leg and turn! That’s it, the first turn is over. Now it’s on to the others. Ah, but in the end, it goes through by itself.

Take lessons with an instructor

If you can learn to ski on your own or with the help of a friend or family member, taking lessons with a ski instructor at the 7 Laux ski resort is not superfluous. The best way to learn to ski is to turn to a professional, even if it’s only for a few hours. As well as learning the essential techniques, it also helps you to feel more confident and self-assured.
