  1. Beginners:
    Children learning to ski for the first time. Learning the 'ski-schuss' is a natural progression once you have mastered moving on the flat. The aim of the group, depending on age, is to learn to snow-plough (brake) and ski short descents or for older children to turn on a slope and to use the lifts.
  2. Snow-plough:
    This group is made up of mostly younger children who are perfecting their snow-plough (brake) and learning to turn on a slope. Older children often skip this level.
  3. Turns:
    The children consolidate their turns and learn to use the lift so that they can tackle more difficult slopes. Older children can often skip this level too.
  4. Safe turns:
    This level sees a repetition of turning skills and an introduction to basic carving by means of a progressive set of exercises i.e. concentrating on positional angles. Parallel skiing is not far off.
  5. Carving basics:
    Here the children learn to bring the skis parallel while turning i.e. the legs are brought together earlier. Parallel skiing is the aim. Depending on their age children can repeat this level several times but various ski games and teaching aids mean the lessons are never boring.
  6. Parallel skiing:
    Pole planting is introduced to help consolidate parallel skiing skills and is followed by learning to ski on edges without sliding out (carving). At this level the children are going faster so we are aiming for speed control and a good understanding of the rules of the piste.
  7. Carving:
    Perfecting carving skills (skiing on edges without sliding out). The children also learn to ski on steeper slopes and practise powder skiing and bumps.
