Basic Camp

Have fun and develop your skills

The best way to kick-start your ski career

 

Is this your first time skiing and would you like a fun start with fellow young people and experienced trainers who can get you started off right? Or are have you skied a little bit before but want to leap towards the next level and really improve your skiing abilities? If  this appeals to you, then our Basic course is just right!

Over the course of one, two or three weeks, you will truly improve your skiing abilities together with fellow, like-minded skiers during this unforgettable ski trip. The camp takes place in Kaprun in November or in Bad Gastein in January. No matter which course length you chose, we guarantee that you will travel back home with a newfound smile and feeling like a reborn skier.

Training

During the course of one, two or three weeks, our experienced Snowminds instructors will take your ski level to great, new lengths. You will be placed in a group of fellow skiers and our instructors will base their instructions on your current ski level. From there on, a lot of intense (and fun 😉) work will be put into your training, together with a strong focus on your technique. You will be skiing every day and each day you will gain a bigger influence on which aspects of your skiing you would like to improve. In the end you will have built up a solid foundation that you can continue to improve in the future.

No matter which course length you chose, we guarantee “the full Snowminds experience”. Our team – each one an experienced ski instructor – will take care of all practicalities, so the only thing you need to focus on is to ski and have fun!

NB! By participating in the camp, you will automatically be qualified to join one of our instructor courses, should you be interested. We will guide you through your options when you book through Snowminds.
