Auli Ski Lessons
What do you do in Ski Lessons?
Ski lessons will introduce you to the equipment used in skiing, take you to the correct places to learn to ski, and teach you to ski in safety. Ski lessons use lots of different exercises and practices to get you to put your body in the correct positions, and make the correct movements. This website shows you how to ski, but cannot make you ski how a maneuver is shown. The kind of exercises done in ski lessons are not shown on this website as they need to be performed with an instructor who can show you the mistakes you are making.
How Long are Ski Lessons?
Ski lessons are generally between 2 and 4 hours long (although not always), 2 hours being a half day and 4 hours being a full day. This may not sound like much, but 4 hours of learning to ski for someone who does not ski often, or has never skied before will normally leave them pretty tired. It is often found that if people do more than 4 hours they just don't have the energy to ski properly any more and their technique suffers.
Types of Ski Lessons
There are generally 2 types of ski lessons, Group Ski Lessons and Private Ski Lessons.
Group Ski Lessons
Group lessons are where you are put into a group of people that are all roughly the same standard, and the instructor will take you through exercises on different slopes to improve everyone's skiing. As you can be in a large group of people with group lessons, the instructor will only be able to pay so much attention to you, and the exercises done will generally have to suit the overall needs of the group. Group lessons can be very good fun though, as being in a group of people can have a very sociable side to it.
Private Ski Lessons
Private lessons are where you have an instructor to yourself (or with the other people you have booked the lesson with). This is the quickest way to learn as you will have all the attention, and all exercise can be suited to exactly what you are doing. Private lessons will work on mistakes as soon as you start to make them, so that it is harder to get into any bad habits.
Between the 2 types of lessons though there can be a large price difference, so although private lessons might be what you would like to have, a lot of people go for group lessons because it fits their budget better.
One last thing to say about ski lessons is that it is always nice to give your instructor a tip at the end, especially if you have learnt a lot. Although your ski lessons may have been quite expensive, it is very unlikely that your instructor will see much of that money, and a tip can often make a big difference to how they get by
When people learn to ski there are many common mistakes that they make, here many of them are listed with reasons why people make them, what happens when you make them, and a bit on what to try to stop yourself making them.
Leaning back is probably the most common mistake that people make when learning to ski. The reason they lean back is normally very simple, they are afraid of the slope or the speed they have, and the natural reaction is to lean back to try and bring yourself further away from it. Leaning back causes many problems though, as soon as you don't push on the front of the ski boots the pressure on the front of the skis decreases giving you less control.
When you lean back the front of the skis will stop pushing into the snow, and can even come into the air altogether. When the front of the skis are not pushing into the snow, it means that that part of the ski cannot give you any control, and effectively makes you ski only using about one third of the skis. There is no simple solution to this other that to consciously make sure you can always feel your shins pushing on the front of the ski boots, and get used to positions you need to do this. Your weight needs to be over the front of your feet for the skis to push evenly into the snow along their length, and give you full control. T is is also explained in the Longitudinal Weight Distribution section.
Not Leaning Far Enough
This is another mistake that is generally caused by fear, in order for maneuvers to work properly the body's weight really does need to be put into the right position. If the body's weight is not moved far enough the effects that are needed for the maneuvers will not be strong enough. If you want a quick and distinct effect from your skis, you really need to get your body weight over the right place and not be shy about it. This is also covered in the Lateral Weight Distribution section.
Moving The Hips
Moving the hips is often a more subconscious mistake, that people don't really realise that they are doing. This falls into the same category as not leaning far enough, as in this case the person does lean further, but they are afraid to put the right amount of weight on the skis, so although the upper body leans considerably in one direction, the hips move out in the other direction, and the overall effect is that the centre of gravity hasn't really moved much. The hips need to be part of the lean to help the body get as far over the outside ski as it needs to be.
Looking at The Front of The Skis
This is another generally fear based mistake, that stops people from paying so much attention to where they are going, and instead concentrate on something that is not very important. Your attention should be on where you are going and therefore you should have your head up and be looking ahead, as for the front of the skis, you should be able to feel where they are without needing to look at them.
Having the Skis Too Far Apart
The skis should be hip width apart when they are parallel. This ensures that they are both at the same angle to the snow, and also means that the weight changes needed to make turns don't need to be so big. If the skis come too far apart the downhill edge of the inside ski can catch in the snow tripping you up or throwing you off balance. Having the skis hip width apart also leaves enough room to roll the knees so that the skis go onto the edges, which is very important if you want to dig the edges in to slow down, or to start carving.
Not Going Fast Enough
To be able to feel the forces and responses in skiing, you need to be going at the right speed. If you are not going fast enough it will take a lot longer for things to happen, and often they will happen so slowly that they you don't really realize what you did to cause the effect. If you are going at the right speed you should be able to throw you weight around a bit and find out what happens from every movement, feeling the responses of the skis.
Skiing is a sport where going for it is very important if you want to learn quickly at all, of course what you are going for has to be suitable for your ability, but as long as you take ski lessons this should not be a problem as the instructor will only ask you to do things that you are ready for.
Not Having The Poles in The Right Position
So many people when they learn to ski start off holding the poles in all sorts of different positions which they shouldn't be in. Most commonly either pointing out in front of them, with their hands stuck to their hips or waving them about all over the place. Your arms should be out in front of you, slightly out to the side, with a slight bend in the elbows and the poles pointing diagonally backwards and downwards. The ends of the poles should be far enough above the snow that they shouldn't catch on anything.
