Hi! This is Dave Smith with Hillcrest Ski
and Sports on behalf of Expert Village. In this tutorial we will cover beginning skiing.
In this clip we’ll cover how to decide if you should get a lesson. Ski lessons are available
at most resorts through their ski school. Once you get to the mountain, you can sign
up for a lesson or a series of lessons. Many hills have packages where you can buy a series
of lessons for a cheaper price than if you paid individually. Lessons are a good idea
if you want to really get the basics down and need some one on one attention. Private
lessons are the most expensive but probably the most beneficial as far as learning techniques
rapidly. You may also choose a group lesson which is generally cheaper and may save you
some money. This tutorial covers basic skiing techniques. Some of you are athletic and pick
things up very quickly and just by practicing these you’ll be able to be competent at beginning
skiing. Others of you may find that you’d benefit from some individual attention from
a professional. It kind of boils down to whether or not you feel it’s worth it to spend the
money to get the instruction. By spending the money you’ll be able to pick these techniques
up quicker and hammer home the basics so that you can build a foundation for advanced skiing.
For some of you that may not be worth it. You may just want to get out there and practice
what you see here to get good at the basics.
