Ski in the UK before your Les Gets holiday
For beginner skiers, Day One on the slopes can seem pretty daunting, but it really doesn't have to be. By booking a few dry-slope lessons at ski centres in the UK, during the weeks before you head out to Les Gets, you can build up your confidence and get a solid grasp of the fundamentals, while having fun on the slopes and heightening that pre-holiday anticipation and excitement.

The snowplough allows you to slow down and stop. You can expect to your first few ski sessions working on the 'plough, also known as the wedge. Below, Ski Instructor Darren Turner of www.SkiSchoolApp.com explains what it is and how it is done.

There are many ski centres in the UK, so you won't have to travel too far in order to find a good facility with qualified ski instructors. Beginning with an introductory session, a short course in skiing will cover the basics (how to put your boots and skis on, how to establish good posture) before moving on to the core techniques of skiing: the 'snowplough', stopping, simple turns etc.
If you've been skiing before, that doesn't mean you won't benefit from visiting a UK ski centre before your Les Gets holiday begins. An hour or two on a dry-slope can help dust off the cobwebs and make sure that you hit the pistes ready to go on your first morning. As you cruise off the top of the Chevannes Express chair lift, it's good to feel confident that you have a couple of refresher sessions under your belt.
