INRTO TO SKI RACING WORKSHOPS
introduce yourself to ski racing at our intro to ski racing workshop
Are you looking to try some basic race training or improve your technique? Why not try our NEW! Intro/Taster race coaching sessions here at Snow Factor
Within this session, our race coaches will show you race drills to help improve performance and technique. There will be time spent going through our soft rubber stubby gates, with the hopes to being able to try the full length gates in the future. Towards the end of the session there will be the option to time yourself on the race course using our wireless timing. This will gauge improvement on your performance and time.
At the end of the session there will be time for Q&A’s, especially with the varied equipment available for potential racers.
Upcoming Sessions :

To take part in this lesson you should be able to ski comfortably down our main slope and be able to control your speed. This lesson is open to all skiers aged 13yrs +.
Your 2 hour coaching session + lift pass will cost just £25pp.
