New in the 2020/2021 season

New this season is that we offer group lessons on the weekends. We start Saturday morning and end Sunday with downhill skiing.

The group teaching lasts two days with 2 teaching hours every day. Are you worried about being part of a larger group in terms of infection control? Then we have the opportunity to take private lessons with our own ski trainer / instructor. This is the fastest way to see progression in your skiing. Of course, we adapt the class to your needs.

This season you will find that we do things a little differently than you are used to; Among other things, we adapt the group teaching to ensure that everyone is safe in terms of infection control. We are constantly updating recommendations and guidelines from NIPH and the Norwegian Ski School to ensure that everyone has the best conditions to be able to maintain the best possible infection control.

The group size will be limited to a maximum of 6 people. It will be possible to order group lessons for families who want to complete ski school together. We will of course adapt the class so that it is suitable for both large and small. For children under 5 years of age, we recommend private tuition, or that the child is part of the family group tuition.

Group course

We put together ski groups according to age and ski level so that the learning outcome is the best possible. The group courses last for 4 days, from Monday to Thursday, and each session lasts for 90 minutes. Every Thursday, the lessons end with a parallel slalom.

Group teaching starts in the children's area, which is located safely and centrally at the bottom of the ski resort. The children's area has conveyor belts, children's lifts and figures in the children's trail. It is also a lavvo that forms the framework for stories, while cold hands and feet are warmed.

All group courses for children from 4-14 years start on Mondays.
• Group course children 4-6 years, 90 minutes.
• Group course children 7-9 years, 90 minutes.
• Group course children 10-14 years, 90 minutes.
