Women’s Ski Coaching Groups

Eli Piste Performance Skiing

Saturday Sessions

New this season we are running some Women’s ski coaching groups. Designed to coach and develop piste performance skills in a women only group. Coached by one of our elite female instructors. The main difference being that all people, from the instructor to the group participants. The entire group dynamic and coaching environment is entirely female. Intending to give a supportive environment for women to develop their skills in the sport of skiing. And hoping to attract more female skiers to improve and develop their skiing skills with us.

The sessions will develop piste performance skills in all turns and all pistes. And while this training is focused on the piste, these skills will enhance your all round skiing performance. These coaching sessions are suitable for skiers comfortable on piste with a variety of turn shapes (on all red runs). But would like to develop more performance, skill, and control. These sessions will give you more choice over how to tackle different types of turns and terrain. Read More…

How We Teach Snowsports

group ski lessons and coaching

Our Teaching Approaches to Snowsports

Our teaching is based around the individual students that we are with. This is not just based on a skiers level of ability. It’s about identifying which learning styles and communication methods their progression favours. What this means is that our teaching model is about understanding different phases and styles of learning. We adapt our teaching styles to get the most out of an individual person’s development. We also understand and adapt to people when they are in different stages of skill development. So our instructors are trained to find, recognise, and adapt to these attributes in people. Augmenting their teaching styles to better suit the needs of different people.

How to Learn Movements & Skills for Skiing

Skiing Skills

A Model for Learning Movements & Skills

Skills for skiing

Some people are born with being able to sprint fast or other talented gifts. Such as being able to obtain skills for skiing effortlessly. But what about those who are not blessed with these abilities and genetics. I am a professional and I am going to tell you that its possible to teach these things, and all motor skills. By first understanding how we learn movement patterns and skills. Which brings me to the Fitts and Posner Three Stage model of acquiring a motor skill. While there are different learning styles to which individuals process and understand information. The process we go through when acquiring motor skills is similar for everyone. Even though motor skills vary widely in type and complexity, such as skills for skiing. The acquisition process is still similar for all. Paul Fitts (1964, Fitts & Posner, 1967) proposed three stages (or phases) of acquiring a motor skill: the cognitive, associative, and autonomous stages (see the table below).
