EXPERIENCED ACADEMY MANAGER
BECOMING A SKI ALL ROUNDER
The PB Ski Academy is structured to provide a comprehensive programme covering several different styles of skiing, aiming to create a confident skier across multiple ski disciplines. The programme is tailored to the needs of the group, ensuring that participants get the most out of their week. The week begins with a skiing assessment made by the instructor in order to produce a tailored development plan for each skier.
The week’s program will provide a comprehensive training experience encompassing various aspects of skiing. Participants will receive specialised instruction in race training, emphasising techniques such as carving, racing strategies and gate negotiation. Additionally, the program will include an introduction to freestyle skiing, allowing participants to explore the resort’s snowparks and take advantage of the natural features available.
If the conditions allow, participants will also be challenged to take their newly learned skills and experience what off-piste the mountain has to offer.
Freestyle tuition involves how to execute safe tricks and jumps in the snow park, and where possible in the half pipe. Depending on weather conditions, toward the end of the week the group will change to wide skis and head off-piste to learn how to adjust their skiing to powder and back country conditions.
The programme is designed for confident black run skiers aged 14 to 17, with a maximum of eight teens in a group. The programme costs may vary between resorts.
