Course Formats and Background Information
whole idea of our skiing courses is to give you very personal,
individual attention, to help you learn in the way you best
We are repeatedly complimented by pupils
for our ability to make the complex very simple, and to
help you unpack a lot of old ski learning that's holding
you back, and by using what's good from that, plus new learnings
and understandings, to re-structure your perceptions to
build new and better skiing. We are also complimented for
the fun our pupils have.
- Our courses are now led by Bob Valentine Trueman (John Shedden having retired).
- Our courses are not suitable for complete beginners.
- Maximum coached in any one group is six people
- Maximum number of people on any one skiing course
is twelve people
- Different minimum number requirements apply to different
courses. If minima are not reached the course may be cancelled
- Ski coaching is for 3 hours per day for each of six
days so you have time to relax and practice what you've
learnt each day.
- Each evening before dinner there is a "mind-module"
in which we cover important sport and other psychological
techniques you can use to help you improve. Naturally,
these (like everything else on your holiday) are attended
at your own choice. Nevertheless they represent extra
value and important learnings.
- IMPORTANT: Any given ski course will only run
if we have a sufficient number of clients booking by the
deadline. In the event of forced cancellation through
lack of numbers we will either immediately refund all
monies, or offer you an alternative date/venue. The decision
will be yours.
- GROUPS: You are entirely free to bring your own group
and book an entire skiing course for yourselves. If
dates do not match, or venues do not suit, please just
make contact with us and we'll almost certainly be able
to arrange something special that will please you.
Coaching cost for the group is £950 plus coaches' lift
pass and holiday cost. Usual maxima apply, minimum number
- INDIVIDUALS: Easily the best way to improve is by having
private ski lessons. Of course we are happy to arrange
these (they are necessarily not cheap). During ongoing
courses usually only an hour will be possible but significant
specific learnings can come about in one or two sessions
- Some clients are able to book an entire week, privately.
The coaching cost of this is £880 for the week plus the
holiday operators' costs for the coach and lift pass.
Choose your own holiday and resort element. The coaching
will be 5 hours per day for six days, plus evening discussions
and psychological training if wanted. Maximum number,
SKI INSTRUCTORS and ASPIRANT SKI INSTRUCTORS.
Our courses are not qualification validations.
However, our ski training will significantly enhance your
understandings of skiing and of the ski teaching and ski
learning process including study of Accelerated Ski Teaching
methods. John created the English Ski Council and it's ski
coaching ladder, and is former Director of Coaching for
the ESC. Bob created ASL; and is highly focused on Accelerated
Ski Learning and ski teaching processes and the mental elements.Between
us therefore we have a considerable knowledge of ski instructor
and ski teacher requirements. We'll help you achieve your
goals in a non-stressful environment.
The nature of holiday organisation is
one of adaptivity - if you don't see what you want, just
ask, it may well be possible!
