The first lesson is for anyone who has absolutely no skiing experience is called an A1. It is possible to book in for just one class or for a full course of four beginner ski lessons. These four classes will give a good introduction to the basics of skiing and by the end of the fourth you will be making simple turns. The beginner classes are taken in sequence - first A1 then A2, A3 and A4. 

Classes are 1hr15mins in duration. Typically classes are taken once a week for four weeks but can be taken much closer together if desired.

For details of rates please see our price list. All classes must be booked in advance with payment please call us on 01 295 5658.

One-Day Learn to Ski Course

During the regular season (September - April) for beginners we also offer a One-Day Learn to Ski Course. These courses take place on most Saturdays during the season. The course condenses the first three beginner A classes into one day. This is particularly convenient way to learn to ski before that first holiday.

Courses start at 10.00 am on Saturdays and run until approx. 4.30 pm with breaks. Tea and coffee will be provided; participants should bring a packed lunch and arrive at 9.30 am to get kitted out.

The price for the one day course is €100 for adults, €90 for students and €70 for those aged 13 - 18. One-day courses run most Saturdays throughout the season (September to April).

Please note one-day courses are physically demanding and are restricted to those aged 13 and over.

Booking is essential. Call 01 295 5658 to book.
