Coaching Zones are the new ski tuition concept from European Snowsport in Verbier for this winter 16/17 offering on the spot ski instruction.
From 1pm to 4pm every day of the season, an experienced instructor from European Snowsport will be on hand at the Coaching Zone on the mountain to give tips, advice, suggest exercises and give feedback.
One-day memberships is available for only 50 Swiss francs (£40), seven days for 200 Swiss francs (£158) and 990 Swiss fancs for the whole season (£786).
Julian Griffiths, founder of European Snowsport in 2003 and one of the youngest Britons to fully qualify as a ski instructor and to meet the strict standards to qualify as a Swiss BBT (Federal Diploma) explains why the concept was developed: 'On a busy day in Verbier there can be 20,000 people skiing and we estimate that as many as 19,000 aren't skiing with an instructor and therefore aren't improving. We know that time on the slopes is precious and not everyone can commit the time or money for a daily lesson, therefore we have developed the Coaching Zone which is flexible and affordable while still giving skiers access to valuable expert advice to improve their technique.'
The Coaching Zone will be located at different locations throughout the week offering different terrains to help skiers improve in a variety of conditions.
